Here is how CFRA, the radio station of record in Ottawa, dropped the knowledge:
BREAKING NEWSA staff member for Patrick Brazeau says the controversial and outspoken senator has been removed from the Conservative caucus.Cash for life.
Lorraine Rochon says that the Senate caucus was notified of the decision today by the office of Sen. Marjory LeBreton.
She says the move is effective immediately.
Brazeau will continue to sit in the Senate as an independent.
I hope he had the decency to send Prime Minister Stephen Harper a cadeau.
