The gunman suspected of shooting dead three Mounties in Moncton remains at large, and a wide swath of the city remains under lockdown as police search for 24-year-old Justin Bourque. Under that pall, parliamentarians debate. The opposition will no doubt key in on Justice Minister Peter MacKay’s attempt to rewrite the country’s prostitution laws. Sex-work advocates dismissed the bill as unconstitutional as soon as MacKay tabled it in the Commons.
