MPs acting independently?

March 24, 2010

I am shocked and impressed.

Ignatieff directed all Liberal MPs to vote in favor of a motion regarding maternal health.  The motion failed because four Liberal MPs were absent for the vote and three actually voted “no”.

I don’t agree with their vote but I am impressed that they voted their conscience instead of just doing what the party leader told them to do.

That’s practically American-style political representation!
