After reneging on his anti-Bill C-38 statement, David Wilks stressed that he had no choice but to vote with the government, saying that's "how Ottawa works." But to those demonizing Harper for this, let us not kid ourselves: Harper has only improved, refined -- and has taken much too far -- the model first introduced by the Liberal Party of Canada and its leaders.
Conservative MP David Wilks recently stood up against his own party to oppose Bill C-38, only to renege days later. In his withdrawal he proved once again that in modern Canada the PM, not the citizen voter, is the ultimate arbitrator of all things Canadian. If you eat your young, what will you do with the rest of the country? Thanks to Bill C-38, we're about to find out.
