Bill C 440 Sanctuary Dies with Liberals MIA

This Bill was introduced in a joint party effort by 2006 leadership candidate "oops wrong field" Gerrard Kennedy (Liberal) and Bill Saskay (NDP).

Is Ignatieff trying to punish former leadership candidates with absent Liberal MP's? Someone should ask Bob about the abortion vote.
