VANCOUVER (CP) — Hundreds of people angry at David Emerson's defection from the Liberals to Conservatives chanted "traitor" at a protest rally. They packed a high school auditorium Saturday in the Vancouver-Kingsway riding to vent their anger and frustration, saying their votes in the Jan. 23 federal election had been rendered meaningless after Emerson crossed the floor to accept a position in the Conservative cabinet two weeks later.
