If at first you don't succeed ...
Later this month, when the Conservatives hold their policy convention in Winnipeg, guess what might land on their agenda?
Well, if the leaked Tory resolutions, found via National Newswatch, are any indication:
Protecting Pregnant Women
PROPOSED BY PRINCE ALBERT AND SASKATOON HUMBOLDT
The Conservative Party supports legislation to ensure that individuals who commit violence against a pregnant woman would face additional charges if her unborn child was killed or injured during the commission of a crime against the mother.
Oh gee. And people accused me of being cynical when, on the eve of last month's election, the Cons took Bill C-484 off the table.
So, if it was "of concern," why did it make it past second reading, only to be cynically aborted in its third trimester, on the eve of the election? How did it get so far?
So yeah, Mr. Harper. You must think us lady voters are really stupid.
