Disappointed in You, Dion

Please tell me either Bill C-484 will die in committee, or that you will whip the vote if it comes up for a third reading - even (or especially) if it's a confidence vote. Readers: please get all the details about this cloaked anti-abortion bill from Cathie, and carefully study the list of who voted which way. Wondering who's been all over this while we've been busy fussing over Cadman? Check out Unrepentant Old Hippie.
As for you, Mr. Dion...

Please tell me this sort of publicity is a brilliant part of fighting back against the Harper attack ads questioning your leadership.

Please tell me how this is in any way productive?

Hate to throw your own words back at you, but you deserve it:

What was the Leader of the Opposition THINKING?!?

I know what I'm thinking. Although I've never been a Liberal and only once voted that way federally, it's about time for the Green Party and me to get to know each other a whole lot better.

In the meantime, Dion, instead of focusing on the bit players, please train your attack at the top.

Thank you

UPDATE: Best line of the day on this goes to Dave: "I have a better idea. All of you go to the pub, order a table-full of beer and weep in it. It'll have the same effect."

Kinda makes you want to cry, doesn't it?

Welcome aboard the Green train, and don't worry, it's not a requirement to wear burkenstocks to meetings;)

Some of us actually have cars and eat meat.

What are the abortion laws in Canada? In fact, do we even have one?
How late in a pregnancy can the baby be killed by abortion, any limits on that?
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
Are all you anti-Conservatives up to speed on what Canada's abortion laws actually are?
To have an informed opinion on the matter you would almost have to be, wouldn't you?
So what are the legal limits on abortion in Canada?
Or do facts matter?
