War of words erupts within Ontario Tory caucus Add to ...

So much for party unity.

Just a few weeks after being named leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservatives, Tim Hudak has a caucus spat on his hands.

Outspoken Tory Bill Murdoch is slamming his colleague Norm Sterling for suggesting that municipal politics should have a party structure.

Mr. Sterling's comments were published in an Ottawa newspaper a week ago.

Mr. Murdoch, who now serves as the party's rural and northern affairs critic, says he completely disagrees with Sterling and that municipal politicians should remain non-partisan.

The feisty Tory was booted from caucus last fall for suggesting that then-leader John Tory find another job, but returned to the fold in April after Mr. Tory resigned.
