I made some notes:
Parliament is a house of debate, highest temple of debate in the countryI was yelling at him throughout. Well, except at the very end about reducing the power of Parliament when I snorted tea out my nose.
Parliament should be able to debate on any subject
Abortion is the most divisive, radioactive in US politics, we don't want this here
Parliament should debate any and all ideas
Limiting debate would reduce the power of Parliament, democracy itself
M. Enright has drunk the KoolAid. Let's straighten him out, shall we?
Alternatively, there's a place for comments -- which are public after all -- here.
Damn. I just commented there, but didn't copy it first and now it's in 'pre-moderation' limbo. I'll come back with it, if/when it is approved.
ADDED: CBC allowed my comment.
Parliament should be able to debate everything? Including Woodworth's disingenuous attempt to muddy the distinction between biological human and legal person with the sole purpose of recriminalizing abortion?
Parliament should debate the curtailing of some people's rights?
Because that's what this is about. Endowing fetuses with rights deprives women, aka incubators in this view, of their rights to autonomy.
This is known as a zero-sum game.
Let's have Parliament debate the rights of bloviating, entitled old CBC hacks to sully my morning with ill-considered baloney, shall we?
