Hyer/Rafferty sanctioned by party

Thunder Bay MP Bruce Hyer is paying for his decision go against his party and vote to abolish the long gun registry. The NDP has stripped him of his critics positions and he can't ask questions or make statements in the House of Commons. He calls the punishment draconian.  Hyer says his vote is based on a promise he made to his constituents.  Fellow MP John Raffery also voted to scrap the registry and he too has been punished.  Rafferty calls it punishing his constituents.
