Clear support from his constituents could help settle the matter. So if you unhappy with how MPs are often relegated to behaving like trained seals, with how the prime minister wields too much power, and with how party posturing tends to trump constituency concerns, take a few minutes to tell Leef to support the Reform Act.
Mr. Chong has been proposing improvements to Parliament for a long time and he has had some great ideas. These one are interesting and have some merit, but they not the best he put forward. The focus solely on the caucus. The prime minister power may become more limited by these changes, but only limited by his own party. Enabling the Opposition to truly hold the government in check, Skechers Velcro Shoes even in a majority, is as or more important.
There, prime ministers fear the real possibility of an uprising by their own backbench, and government MPs outside of cabinet aren afraid ask real questions of ministers in Parliament as opposed to the canned schlock rehearsed by backbenchers like Leef.
These new rules could also conceivably allow Leef to open his mouth without first consulting the Prime Minister Office a request he presumably still waiting to hear back on for this matter, as his position remains unclear for now.
In fairness to Leef, some thoughtful objections to Chong bill have been raised. It inconsistent Skechers Go Walk Womens Sale

The bill would also codify the rules in which a party caucus may expel and re admit members, or give their party leader the boot. All these measures could be triggered by a petition signed by 15 per cent of caucus, followed by majority consent during a secret ballot vote.
The party nomination thing is interesting. Allowing flexibility for the party writ large (through the PM or otherwise) to appoint candidates is, in my opinion, something important to retain. We need better people in Parliament. women raising small kids, municipal/territorial/provincial politicians who are not members of the federal party, those whose jobs don lend to being involved in politics like police officers the party should be able to take it come election time, and not simply accept that a riding association nominates their riding president or some other party volunteer (hack?) who has been building up support within the membership for 4 years between elections.
Many private member bills fail, but the Reform Act has a real chance of becoming law, with both opposition parties making warm sounds about it, and a handful of Conservative backbenchers openly expressing their support.
The threshold to trigger a leadership vote amounts to just a handful of MPs for small parties, like the much diminished Liberals, creating the potential for undesirable turmoil. And parties could be vulnerable to pressure groups hijacking weak riding associations. If our MPs are disappointing in their general spinelessness, the real solution is for the public to communicate that we expect our politicians to grow some spines.
The downfall of Leef predecessor, the Liberals Larry Bagnell, may well have played out very differently under this proposed set of rules. After voting against his party long gun registry on several occasions, Bagnell eventually joined the pack, after being told that doing otherwise would result in his expulsion from caucus. Many Yukoners later cited Bagnell propping up of the gun registry as why they abandoned supporting him.
Leef, dutifully reading the Prime Minister Office talking points, notes that both the Liberals and NDP actually vote as a herd more often than the Conservatives. That may be true, but the reality is that all parties see their members vote as a bloc the overwhelming majority of the time.
Leef should, too. This is not one of those disingenuous pleas for our MP to commit political suicide by, say, voting against his government budget. He says he expects to be able to vote freely on the matter. He just hasn made up his mind.
The bill would deprive party leaders of one powerful weapon they wield to keep their MPs in line a veto over who receives the party nomination in each riding. Approval of nominations would instead revert back to individual riding associations.
support the Reform Act
The opportunity arises from a private member bill tabled this week by Michael Chong, one of Leef fellow Conservative backbenchers. Dubbed the Reform Act, the draft law aims to empower MPs and somewhat weaken party leaders. It could be a real game changer.
to have party leaders picked by the membership (or in the case of the Liberals, anyone who chooses to cast a vote) but expelled by caucus.

Chong insists his bill is not an effort to depose Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and to diffuse any such interpretation, it would not take effect until after the next election.
The aim of the bill, instead, is to restore what Chong sees as the proper workings of a Westminster parliamentary system such as our own. He points to other Westminster democracies, such as Britain, where MPs currently wield such powers.
