At some point, the NDP has to learn that their filibustering tactics only result in further efforts to limit debate through closure and time allocation measures. The NDP aren't defending democracy by filibustering -- they're filibustering democracy.
I am grateful that my husband lived a long and productive life. So, please do not tell me how to grieve. Spare me the euphemisms. My husband did not "pass." He died. I have not "lost" him: I know exactly where his body is, and his spirit is with me. And. Do. Not. Speak. To. Me. Of. Closure. What a hideous word. Bring me acceptance but, never, closure.
