Canadian MP Libby Davies reads 9/11 petition in Parliament

Why isn't this huge news????

I saw that as well, and while I think its disgusting, I'm not surprised it hasnt gotten any media play. I think most people are used to the NDPs idiotic antics by now. Their moral bankruptcy isnt really news anymore.

Maybe Libby can tell us where the 24 Canadians are who were slaughtered by 19 Muslims ?

Oh wait....Maher Arar's wife ran for the NDP in Ottawa on the anti-Israel/USA platform as a Sunni Muslim that is Anti-Abortion/Anti-gay and was aided by Layton in a $400 million dollar lawsuit by Maher and his Whahabbi buddies at CAIR-Canada .

Yes Libby......the Joooooo's did it and all the vicitms are being held at Area 51 in a Hanger with the Roswell Aliens and JFK along with Hitler and Elvis.

Now shut-up and sit your big ar$e down from all those Trans-Fats the NDP claims to have made you obese and a threat to the Earth.

It's not huge news because it's a routine part of an MPs job to present petitions from their constituents in Parliament. We've already had this silly discussion before when Conservative MP Mike Lake presented a petition in Parliament to have Bigfoot declared an endangered species.

To Robert: Are you saying that MPs Have to read petitions in parliament no matter how ridiculous? Can you point to the rule/law regarding this matter?

I cannot believe we are paying her $150.000 plus all the tax free flights and the money she gets from being on a committee for this and a committee for that etc...To put in perspective, the population of Canada is 33,300,000, so if my math is correct 500 Canadians represent .0015% of the population, to put it mildly, I am underwhelmed. These people make me sick.....argee

Can you point to the rule/law regarding this matter?


Today in Canada, petitions are given to a Member of Parliament (MP) with a request that they be read in the House of Commons.

It hasn't gotten much attention because everything Libby Davies says is ignored. She's a twit.

G&R, to answer your question - NO. And to answer everyone else's question, McClelland is an idiot.

Instead of attaching some "educational" association site, why not go right to the Parliament site where you could have found the phrase:

"Nothing in the rules or practices of the House requires a Member to present a petition he or she has received. The Member may even ask another Member to present the petition."

Check this site.

That took four minutes.

Even the document McClelland links too will tell you that presenting a petition is not mandatory.

I never said it was mandatory, retards. I said it was a routine part of their job.

Parse it up any way you want Bobby.

The question was:

"Are you saying that MPs Have to read petitions in parliament no matter how ridiculous? Can you point to the rule/law regarding this matter?"

Your response:

"Sure" and linked to the site.

When someone asks a question, the "sure"
usually means "yes".

I guess in Bobby's world it means "not really, but here's a partial quote for something that makes it seem otherwise."

and McClelland, calling people who call you on your BS "retards" - well, just remember the old saying about remaining silent and letting people think you're a fool, rather than opening your mouth and removing all doubt.

Check again. I quite clearly only answered the second question which was, "Can you point to the rule/law regarding this matter?"

Gee,'re quite the debater!

The plain fact of the matter is that she was under NO obligation to read that petition...and she CHOSE to do so.

And, that means that she is a dangerous twit, to say the least.

Sorry I am slow to get back - real job, etc.

My only response to McClelland is what are you talking about?

Even if we accept your pathetic excuse of "I was answering the second question" it still doesn't hold water.

The second part of G N'R 's question is entitely dependent upon the first part to give it context. Otherwise it is meaningless.

Using your logic, the anwer to your question could have been "for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction". It is a well known rule or law but doesn't have anything to do with the first part of the question. Sort of like your responses.

The right answer was "sorry, my mistake."

It is trite, but when when you find yourself in a hole, and it is painfully obvious that you're in a hole, stop digging.
