Cornwall ON – We all can sleep a bit better tonight as the Long Gun Registry has lived another day thanks to a squeaker of a vote today in Parliament.
Every MP showed up for the 153 – 151 vote. Sadly this issue isn’t quite dead. It’s not a Norwegian Blue. It will live to show it’s ugly head another day if The Harper government has its wicked way.
But for tonight those that truly believe in the registry, as imperfect as it may be, can feel sated that justice has prevailed and that the majority of Canadians have truly spoken.
The vote was far closer because the Jack Layton NDP had allowed an open instead of whipped vote which required much hand wringing and head locking to muscle enough votes to get the bill squished.
Good things can happen with a minority government and in this case a gross injustice to Canada was prevented. Cheers to those whose convictions won the day!
