Why is the media unwilling to call out the defeated and absent MPs? Does the term "Will of Parliament" only apply if used by Liberals-NDP supported policies?
|Respect for "Will of Parliament" does not apply to Coalition?|
A large majority of MPs defeated the Liberal motion to have the government drop the plans of the purchase of the F35. The Liberal-NDP coalition were only able to field 100 MPs to show up for their vote. At full strength the 115 Lib-NDP MPs would be unable to block the deal.
The vote on the Liberal motion was defeated in the Commons by a vote of 170-100, with Bloc MPs lining up en masse with the Conservative minority government.
The Liberals continue to run internet ads complaining about the F35 decision after losing the vote in parliament.
