Maclean’s Live: The House debates the Reform Act


Michael Chong
This evening, the House of Commons debated Tory MP Michael Chong’s Reform Act, a private member’s bill that its sponsor says would take power out of leaders’ offices and gives it to parliamentarians and their caucuses. Aaron Wherry has followed the debate since the beginning and reported extensively on the legislation’s slow march through the House of Commons. The debate ran for an hour, concluding at 6:30 ET. All sides of the House chimed in with some measure of support. We liveblogged the proceedings, which you’ll see if you scroll down the page. First, some background. Here’s Chong describing his bill.
