From the Dept of Not Quite Thinking it Through ...
I've pretty much given up monitoring the parliamentary committee meetings Kady doesn't cover because it's just depressing watching the Cons vote everything down that doesn't further speedy passage of their bills but today at Ethics was a hoot.
Remember how Del Mastro gave the Libs a week to cough up the names behind the Vast Liberal Conspiracy of staffer Adam Carroll's Vikileaks30 twitter account?
Week's up so off it went to committee for Del Mastro's motion to call him before committee for a grilling.
Glitch : Ethics Committee chair is Jean Crowder who threw it out - it's the wrong committee - but the Cons stupidly voted her down so it's being debated and she gets to allow debate to continue as long as she likes.
Charlie Angus notes that this will entail going through the whole Vikileaks correspondence about Toews and determining whether each line is true or not in order to decide how serious his crime was.
Del Mastro walked out; vote postponed til next meeting.
