Liberal MP Leona Alleslev slams Trudeau, crosses floor to Tories


In a bombshell move Monday, a rising star among the Trudeau Liberals crossed the House of Commons floor to join the Conservatives of Andrew Scheer, but not before delivering a scathing indictment of a government she accuses of failing the country.

"My oath is to country, not party, and my sacred obligation is to serve my constituents,' said Alleslev. "My duty is to stand and by counted. I must do what is right, not what is easy."
