Liberal senators helped pass Bill S 6

Liberal candidate Larry Bagnell states that he briefed his party’s caucus leaders on Yukoners’ concerns with Bill S-6. Well, he did not do a very good job with that!

It is true that the Liberal MPs voted with the NDP to oppose the bill… But the Liberal senators voted with the Harper Conservatives for it. Oops, Larry. You should have briefed your brothers at the Senate too.

Senator Daniel Lang’s news release said: “Liberal Senator, the Hon. Grant Mitchell, the Opposition Critic on the bill, also spoke in support of the Bill, and the thorough review conducted by the Senate Standing Committee on Energy, Environment and Natural Resources.”

I am not surprised at Mr. Bagnell’s attempt to rewrite the Liberals’ behaviour on this issue.

We need to abolish the unelected and unaccountable Senate and elect Melissa Atkinson to represent us in Ottawa. She will better explain Yukoners’ concerns with any bill to be passed by Parliament.
