C-251 - MP floor-crossing prohibition

In the last Parliament the following Conservatives voted to stop MPs from crossing the floor without a by-election. 14 other Conservatives were absent on the day of the vote including Harper. Have any of these people spoken out against Mr. Emerson crossing the floor? - or are they just apart of the hypocrisy?

There’s nothing wrong with crossing the floor per se. It happens in every parliamentary system. But two weeks after having been elected and run on one party’s platform while blasting the other’s… That’s over the line. There’s a good deal of anger in the riding, and rightfully so, in my opinion.

By the way I added a link to your site and the petition on my blog. Funny to see the way some of your conservative friends are attempting to defend this.

I am not against floor crossing, but all I can say to the Conservatives is what hypocrits. I knew they would be no more honest than the Liberals so I voted based on policy not ethics. Hopefully next time around people will vote based on policy and hopefully we can kick Harper and his sorry ass out of government. I initially supported the merger and wanted a Conservative government, but not with Stephen Harper at the helm.

The purpose of this blog is to demonstrate that the Conservative minded person will not wait until the Conservative party becomes as bad as the Liberal party - WE WILL HOLD OUR PARTY TO ACCOUNT.

A note, I recieved that I thought was worth sharing. "I'm really pissed off with David Emerson, and have been
trying to arrange a sit-in at his constituency office tomorrow afternoon.

I've been sending the following around:
David Emerson has disenfranchised the people of Vancouver Kingsway, misled
his electorate, and should be recalled. His contituency address is
2148 Kingsway
Vancouver, BC
V5N 2T5
Go there on Wednesday February 8th at 4pm to join others in demanding his
resignation, or just leave him a message: 604) 775-6263

It would be great if you would join us/forward this to lots of people/stick
it up on your site.

Will "

I happen to think that sin is fungible.
