Blogging Tory Mike Brock has his Spider-Man Underoos in a serious bunch over:
Further to yesterdays outrage post, I have received quite a bit of feedback. But I was very interested where some of that feedback has originated.
Late last night, a CPC staffer, who asked not to be named, leaked me a set of memos and legal briefs on C-51, establishing not only do the Conservatives want this bill passed, but the PMO is putting it's full weight behind getting it through, in it's current form.
Needless to say, this is not a Liberal leftover bill as some commenters have pondered. It is a purebred Conservative bill, and it would appear that many cabinet ministers are lucidly aware of it's contents, as is the PMO.
I also received a phone call from someone who would remain nameless, who notes that very little if any external consultation was done for this bill. There was no consultation with provincial health ministries, none with potentially other interested parties.
This bill literally looks like something the Conservatives want to silently ram through parliament. We must deny them that.
E-mail or call your MP. Deluge newspapers with editorial comments, etc. Stop this additional incursion into civil liberties.
Because, let me tell you, Mike is all about putting the brakes on those additional incursions into civil liberties.
Then again ...
