Put it to a vote


 

So it seems that it will be the separatist party that compels the House of Commons to debate and vote upon this country’s mission in Afghanistan.


 

Put it to a vote

  1. Because they have an opposition day before the NDP does.

  2. It's all a plot to tear the country apart.

  3. And the Liberal caucus is split.

  4. I thought Harper was already doing that.

  5. However, given that the Liberal leader supports having a vote, isn't that kinda a moot issue?

  6. Every politician I didn't vote for is ruining my country, province and/or city.

  7. Isn't it always the way?

  8. History works in cycles. Looking back at WWI, instead of being separatists, it could be argued that the people of Quebec were Canadian nationalists, via their arguments that Canada should control its own foreign policy and do things for itself, instead of subordinating itself to British interests.

  9. Hardly considering the Liberals voting history, including bills they thought wouldn't be an issue. A Liberal private members bill on reproductive health options comes to mind.

    How is it going to look when this comes to a vote and the Liberals don't stand united behind Ignatieff and Rae?

  10. Yes.

  11. How is it going to look when this comes to a vote and the Liberals don't stand united behind Ignatieff and Rae?

    Like the Liberal party doesn't force its MPs to check their consciences at the door before votes?
