Emerson could not vote for a Conservative Bill even when the Liberals order him to do so

According to How'd they Vote website Emerson voted against Liberal party instructions to support Conservative Bill C-248:

After reviewing his voting record -found here - He never voted against his own party but voted against his party's instruction to suppor Bill C-248 (Conservative bill) - An Act to amend the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (trafficking in a controlled drug or substance within five hundred metres of an elementary school or a high school)

Therefore, Emerson could not even vote for a Conservative bill when his party order him to do so - 59 Liberals , all of the Bloc & NDP & Independents supported this bill but not Emerson

Here is a petition for Mr. Harper’s unelected friend, Michal Fortier, to resign his senior cabinet post until he runs and wins in a by-election for a seat in the House.

While Mr. Emerson did vote against the bill, he certainly was not unique in his stance. 31 Liberals voted against and 59 for; your claim that he went "against Liberal party instructions" is misleading.
