The Alberta Liberal and NDP caucus’ were sucessful in filibustering Ted Morton‘s Bill 208 yesterday afternoon in the Alberta Legislature.
In response to the still-death of his bill, Dr. Morton had these words to offer:
“The Liberals not only were irresponsible in blocking debate today, they were stupid, too.”
Liberal House Leader Laurie Blakeman responded with:
“I’m not going to accept arguments from Dr. Morton that he deserves special treatment to get his bill up and I’m frankly not going to accept that from the Speaker either.”
ADDENUM – I would just like to send a shout out to all those folks who felt inclined to send me emails filled with lots of nasty names and accusations. Glad to know that you’re reading my blog!
