5764...Sometimes Harper Does What's Right

Bill C-279 immediately comes to mind.

It is being reported everywhere that Bill C-279 passed today.

Pour quoi Bill C-279 you ask?

It is Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca NDP MP Randall Garrison's private members bill which would add gender identity and gender expression to the prohibited grounds of discrimination in the Canadian Human Rights Act.  It sailed through the commons today and is on to the Senate.

That is why I call you, Stephen Harper, our beloved Prime Minister.



  1. ...except Harper was among the many Cons who voted AGAINST the bill... so save your praise for the 16 brave Conservatives who did the right thing.

  2. EXCEPT "Prime Minister Stephen Harper, most of his front bench and the vast majority of his backbenchers opposed it."

  3. John Baird, Jim Flaherty, Lisa Raitt and James Moore and twelve other Conservatives did what's right. As is always the case with LGBT issues, our beloved Prime Minister is on the wrong side of history.
