Kicking them out was "the only decision" that could be taken, said Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett on the latest episode of "Follow-Up".
"You'd have to be as dull as dull gets to not understand the view of caucus," offered Liberal MP John McKay. "...Did it do political damage? It did, and it has."
