The bastard!!!

MacKay should defect to the liberals and take over the party just to show Harper who is boss!

Yeah yeah!

Harper claimed tonight that he has been impressed by Mr. Emerson record and actions in the House - I guess Harper doesn't know that Emerson voted against him every single time.

By the way, my local Liberal - Bryon Wilfert, voted against his own party 8 times during the last parliament whereas Emerson voted against his own party once.

Can you get this list out to a more public forum - in the media?

Cabinet solidarity probably tied his hands.

On non-money issues Harper hopes to hold free votes so this kind of comparison might be more useful in the future.

Gary McHale, what was the one Liberal item that Emerson voted against?

Good Question:

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
