It's times like this, I've got to say, that can give even the most devoted committee blogger a bit of an existential crisis. Why am I here, standing outside a West Block committee room? What am I doing? What is my purpose on this planet? Is it really to wait for Art Hanger to storm out of a meeting and glare for the cameras? I guess so.
One of your purpose's is too give Canadians a interesting, witty, with just the right dash of sarcasm, perspective on the insanity that consumes our elected officials. Keep the faith Kady!
A great read.
Dominic LeBlanc's latest attempt to circumvent the Hanger filibuster. An opposition motion:
April 4, 2008 — Mr. LeBlanc (Beauséjour) — That the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights be instructed to undertake a study to determine whether existing statute law, including Section 119 of the Criminal Code, currently serve as effective deterrents in preventing attempts to bribe Members of Parliament and that the said Committee report its findings to the House no later than May 16, 2008.
