Friction over Ontario’s contentious harmonized sales tax sparked a rancorous scene at Queen’s Park on Monday, forcing the Speaker to suspend two Progressive Conservative MPPs for the rest of the legislative session.

The fracas began after Tory MPP Bill Murdoch called Premier Dalton McGuinty a liar for not holding provincewide public consultations on tax harmonization — just as his fellow opposition members Ted Chudleigh and Peter Shurman had done on Nov. 19.

Murdoch, who represents Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, refused to withdraw the comment, so Speaker Steve Peters ordered him removed from the legislature.
