New meaning to private members bill and motions?

Under a government led by a Liberal/NDP coalition, private members’ bills and motions from the Conservative side will have a good chance of passing, given the 143 Tory seats plus the possibility of two independents voting for them.

That’s within 20 seats of the coalition, assuming all their members attend all votes on such bills and motions.

Could be interesting, eh?smleaf

  1. Here's the catch: private member bills could be declared non-votable items by the House committee. With all three parties objecting the bill that's what is most likely to happen to the most Conservative private member bills that actually go as far as being placed in the order of precedence.

    Hopefully Harper prorogues the Parliament this week and calls an election right after the budget vote.
