Question:

When the same-sex marriage bill passed, Stephen Harper said that it was "illegitimate" because a majority of federalist MPs opposed it.

I wonder if he's going to say that tonight's vote is "illegitimate" because a majority of federalist MPs support the government?

Oh that's right, I forgot: it's only "illegitimate" if you disagree with it. Just like "activist" judges.

Harpers comments were a boneheaded. I think that the best thing to happen is for there to be a free vote that fails to repeal ssm and then let the country move on, unless of course a free vote does repeal ssm and then lets move on.

Hah well that would be nice, one true free vote to close the issue once and for all.

But the sad truth of the matter is that the left is only willing to "move on" if they get what they want. They only have tolerance for a free vote if they believe it will result in an agenda win.
