The NDP’s motion to impose a standard of relevancy on responses in question period has been defeated in the House by a vote of 144-132.

The government opposed the motion and, by unofficial counts, only three Conservatives voted in favour: Michael Chong, James Rajotte and Brian Storseth. Paul Calandra voted nay.

    since it’s those same “House” of CON’s that also wastefully tax the 99% of Canadians “irrelevantly” too.
