This is the week that was

Aaron Wherry catches you up on the week in Parliament. Not to give anything away, but they voted …


 

The House voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and voted and C-38 was passed at report stage. As the week began, Peter Van Loan lamented. The Liberals wondered if the government might be ready to split the bill. The Speaker ruled, but found he could not agree with Elizabeth May. Ms. May was disappointed, but glad. Nathan Cullen saw a breach of privilege, but the Speaker didn’t see enough. C-38 was studied. The NDP questioned David Tilson. The IMF stood to gain. And the Conservatives were left uneasy.

Peter MacKay deferred to the experts. Bob Rae deferred entirely. Justin Trudeau was speculative. We considered the Speaker’s first year and kept waiting for the Defence Department to explain itself. Scott Clark dissected the Harper government’s rhetoric on Europe. Roland Paris bet on John Baird. The National Roundtable on the Environment and the Economy issued a final warning. The OECD saw signs of Dutch Disease. The government missed its own time limit. And Parks Canada employees were advised of what they could say.
