Well, I guess I'll have to eat my words to a certain extent. My own Member of Parliament, the "Honourable" Karen Redman actually did do the honourable thing last night by voting with the yeas to extend the Afghanistan mission by two years. Complete voting details can be found in Hansard. (Time - 22:20)
What is less honourable is that neighouring riding M.P. Andrew Telegdi voted with the nays.
What is the least Honourable and definitely not Right, is that former Prime Minister Paul Martin wasn't even there to cast a vote. What does this guy do to earn his pay anyway, or is that an "entitlement"?
Now please excuse me while I try to floss the plastic out of my teeth.
Update: I may have eaten that keyboard for nothing. I was listening to Jeff Allen's "Hour of Rage" on Newstalk 570, and somebody complained that Karen Redman apparently whined that it was with "great indignation" that she voted to extend the mission.
Can anyone confirm that? It just felt too weird supporting Karen on anything. Thanks.
