    I like this quote from Trudeau in the above article:

    Once again we see the NDP jumping on the Conservative bandwagon because their approach on climate change, their approach on the economy has simply fallen flat, said Mr. Trudeau.
    What does climate change and the economy have to do with this? How does Trudeau explain all the Liberal MP's that apologized alongside the other parties?

      This should qualify the Vice Admiral for about 10.5 million.

        I think that is clear? More interested in political gain.

          PM and MND skip out of the House of Commons just before the house unanimously gives an apology to VAdm Norman for the unnecessary legal ordeal he had to put up with.

          "The House of Commons apologized Tuesday to Vice-Admiral Mark Norman and his family for what they endured over the course of his breach-of-trust case, which collapsed last week.

          However, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan were absent."




          Hmmm.

            I'd prefer not to be that cynical, but that's certainly what it looks like. Any chance to make political hay should never be passed up.

              Hmmm.
              Raitt brought up the issue/vote after JT had already left to meet the Croatian President in Hamilton. You can hmmmmm all you want, but at least present the facts.

                Not cynical as it has become a pattern.

                  What was Sajjan's excuse? Had to go and single handedly mastermind a military attack?

                    bahaha.

                    Anyway, you pretty much expect the politicians to be opportunistic and underhanded in their dealings, but the actions of the leadership of the Department of National Defence, RCMP and the prosecutor's office here are what is really disappointing. The PMO wanted to make an example of Norman, and these supposedly independent bodies certainly played along. I hope that an independent inquiry into this affair along with SNC lavalin is part of the election platform of all of the election platforms of all of the opposition parties.

                      It wasnt just the two of them, one of the articles said that several cabinet members had already left as she brought it up after question period. But that doesn't make the saucy headlines.

                        I'm pretty sure there is a very well established agenda in the house of commons, that apology Item coming up was no surprise to any of the members.

                          "The House of Commons has agreed unanimously to apologize to Vice-Admiral Mark Norman over what he had to go through during the years-long legal battle that came to an end last week when federal prosecutors stayed the breach of trust charge he was facing.

                          Conservative Deputy Leader Lisa Raitt proposed the motion after question period on Tuesday."
                          or you know, you could read the articles instead of making assumptions. Everyone seems to be looking so hard for a conspiracy here they are going to find one no matter what.

                            You'll have to excuse me but where did it say there that this wasn't scheduled and the party whips weren't fully aware that this was happening in advance?

                              There's nothing stopping Trudeau and Sajjan from apologizing outside of the House of Commons.

                                If it was scheduled vote it would likely be in a different sitting, like the one tomorrow everyone is salivating over. Not tacked on to the end of question period. To that end, you're again just making the assumption that the party whips knew before hand. Find me a link/article where it backs that claim up and I'll gladly eat some crow.
