Grewal returns to Ottawa

Buried within the Globe & Mail story about the coming Conservative attempt to force a summer election is a discussion of the three Conservative MPs who have missed recent votes, including Grewal:
Mr. Chatters and Mr. Stinson have cancer, but Mr. Chatters said yesterday he has finished his last round of chemotherapy and could be in Ottawa next week. Mr. Stinson's aides said he too could attend. Finally, Mr. Grewal quietly returned to Ottawa this week, fuelling rumours he could soon be removed from stress leave. Sources say Mr. Grewal is ready to vote in the House should he receive orders to do so from the party leadership.
