Liberal MP Pat O'Brien announced Monday he would be leaving the Liberal caucus to sit as an independent, saying Prime Minister Paul Martin had gone back on his promise to give adequate public consultation on same-sex marriage legislation.O'Brien had been long rumoured to be ready to quit the Liberal caucus over SSM.

Mr. O'Brien said Monday that he feels that the Prime Minister went back on his word and that the process to legislate same-sex marriage was "unfolding to be a farce."Calling the Prime Minister a liar, in the nicest possible way, is pretty strong language from a sitting MP. I suspect we are in for more fun in the House.
