I really shouldn’t read the news before going to bed. But here it is:
During routine procedures at 10:00 AM Eastern time, some Members of Parliament voted “nay” when MP Woodworth asked for unanimous consent.
Under Parliamentary rules Woodworth could not, without unanimous consent, bring this Motion to a vote and his only option was to seek unanimous consent from all Members.
There are no other Parliamentary options for Motion 476. “This marks a dark and dangerous day for Canada,” Woodworth said. “Members of Parliament who voted against this motion have refused to endorse the essential principle of democratic governance which requires legal recognition of the equal worth and dignity of every member of the human family.”
