Weston to D.C.?

Is veteran Sun Media columnist Greg Weston a casualty of the Ottawa Shuffle?

Greg has a column today online, but The Hill Times says "It appears something happened" to Weston, a Sun Media political columnist for 35 years.

One source said Mr. Weston's column 'is gone,' and there were possible talks about a position in Washington, D.C., the online newspaper says.

The Hill Times also says:

"There was concern in the Parliamentary Press Gallery last week that the sudden appointment of Kory Teneycke, Mr. Harper's former communications director, to oversee journalists at the Quebecor Media Inc. Parliament Hill bureau, may have been related to controversial stories about the summit spending. Several of the most controversial reports were broken by a member of the bureau, Sun Media columnist Greg Weston."

A check by TSF revealed Greg's recent summit cost columns are archived under his name at torontosun.com, but there are no Weston column links on Sun Media's Eye on the Hill site.

Meanwhile, Greg is receiving shoutouts for highlighting the Conservative government's summit expenditure, now widely publicized thanks to his reporting.
