Mr. Speaker, here is what the Winnipeg Free Press said, “The Prime Minister has done as Canadians increasingly expect of him to do; put power ahead of principle”.
The Ottawa Citizen said:
It is [the Prime Minister's] delaying tactics, not Opposition manoeuvring, that is sowing the seeds of a constitutional crisis. He should let MPs vote now. The Globe and Mail said:
But with each moment they linger, they will expose themselves as so desperate to hang onto power that they spit in the face of the Commons and call it respect.
Why are they putting power ahead of principle? Why are they violating the Constitution of Canada? Why will they not have a clear vote on Monday--
