Conservative candidate dropped for... telling the truth?

As we know, Harper likes to keep a tight grip on his MPs. Needless to say, the same goes for prospective MPs, which might explain why this happened:
A moment of candour has cost Gordon Landon a shot at federal politics.

Landon was dumped Monday as the Conservative candidate for Markham-Unionville after publicly musing the GTA riding was being shut out of federal infrastructure funding because it is held by a Liberal.

The York regional councillor says he complied with a request from the Conservative party to step aside, adding he is not used to people telling him what to say and think.

Hat tip to Green Assassin Brigade for the link.
