Liberals killing Bills to hide report

Simcoe, Ontario - Tuesday, September 17, 2002 - by: Zeb Landon




The Liberals, unprepared to admit error, are killing Bills that have had hundreds to hours of the time of Parliamentarians and their staffs die in order to bury a report concluding there had been wrongdoing on their part in awarding advertising contracts.




Two of them, Bills C-5: Protecting species at risk and and C-15B: New offences for animal cruelty have passed the House of Commons and are awaiting Senate approval. Another, C-56: Regulating reproductive technology, is a necessity in that grants are being disbursed with no guidelines in place. The species at risk Bill is dying for the third time.




Why a new session critics ask? Why indeed, other than they hope mistakes will be forgotten and forgiven through offering a new set of promises in a throne speech.




Promises as likely to be fulfilled as abolishing the GST, now speculated to be going to rise to 10%) and establishing an Ethics Commissioner with powers to hold them to account.
