It's Pink Shirt Day today.
I booted up the Twitter machine, checked the hashtag for Warawa's Wank and nearly blew camomile tea out my nose.
Today is Anti-bullying day. Bullying in all forms is wrong. Standing up for victims helps! #M408— Mark Warawa (@MPmarkwarawa) February 27, 2013
I wasn't the only one struck by this hypocritical drivel.
Well, we all know the answer to Claudine's question, don't we?
Votes from a handful of Conservative backbenchers weren’t enough to push through an NDP proposal to strike an all-party committee to study and craft a national anti-bullying strategy.I looked and found the five Cons who voted for it: Smith, Allen, Brown, Tilson, and Bezan.
The motion from NDP backbencher Dany Morin was defeated Wednesday night in the Commons by a vote of 149 to 134. About half a dozen Conservative backbenchers voted in favour of the motion, but the support was not enough to have it passed.
Mark Warawa, champion of bullied fetuses, not among them.
I know. You're shocked.
UPDATE: Courtesy of Radical Centrist, here is the division. Note Warawa among the NAYS, not conveeeniently absent.
