Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad ousted from BC Liberals Caucus

BC Liberal Leader Kevin Falcon has removed Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad from the caucus.

“Politics is a team sport and British Columbians expect their elected officials to work cooperatively on the important issues facing our province.
