Cumberland - Colchester - Musquodoboit Valley

Bill C-11 house debate day 9

On February 10, 2012 we had the 9th time when the House of Commons debated Bill C-11 (at Second Reading). The previous debate day was February 8, 2012.

This was the last day of debate before the bill is sent to committee at second reading. In some ways we have returned to the same position we were a little less than a year ago when the government fell in March 2011. In other ways it appears that the general public, who will be greatly impacted by this bill, are far more engaged than they were at that time.

Bill C-11 legislative committee has been struck.

A report from the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs lists the 12 members of the new Legislative Committee on Bill C-11 as follows:

Charlie Angus (Timmins—James Bay, NDP)
Scott Armstrong (Cumberland—Colchester—Musquodoboit Valley, Conservative)
Tyrone Benskin (Jeanne-Le Ber, NDP)
Peter Braid (Kitchener—Waterloo, Conservative)
Paul Calandra (Oak Ridges—Markham, Conservative)
Andrew Cash (Davenport, NDP)
Dean Del Mastro (Peterborough, Conservative)
Mike Lake (Edmonton—Mill Woods—Beaumont, Conservative)
Phil McColeman (Brant, Conservative)
Rob Moore (Fundy Royal, Conservative)
Pierre Nantel (Longueuil—Pierre-Boucher, NDP)
Geoff Regan (Halifax West, Liberal)

MP Bill Casey on his fight to remain a Conservative

Globe and Mail documents some of the ongoing problems between the Prime Minister and Bill Casey

A Tory riding executive in northern Nova Scotia has been suspended by the party's national council over its defiant support for ousted MP Bill Casey, a Conservative Party spokesman said Sunday.

William D. (Bill) Casey (Cumberland - Colchester - Musquodoboit Valley) vs. PM Harper.

An interesting riding to watch is Cumberland - Colchester - Musquodoboit Valley where Bill Casey currently sits. While the riding association has again nominated him to be the Conservative candidate, PM Steven Harper has stated that he will not allow him to run as a Conservative.
