Controversial Ontario MPP Jack MacLaren kicked out of Tory caucus

A controversial Progressive Conservative politician has been kicked out of the caucus after a video from 2012 emerged showing him hinting at a hidden agenda and making comments about Franco-Ontarians.

The video, posted online by Ottawa radio station CFRA, shows Jack MacLaren talking to a group of people and agreeing with people lamenting French language rights in eastern Ontario.

.. Progressive Conservative Leader Patrick Brown says in a statement that the video is the final straw with MacLaren.

Brown says each time MacLaren is caught making disparaging remarks he asks for forgiveness and second, third and fourth chances, but it’s clearly part of a pattern.
