The notwithstanding clause was the key. Brian Milner, 8:20 p.m. Here we go. Notwithstanding. Marcus Gee, 8:21 p.m. Hang on: Is Martin saying he'd try to scrap the notwithstanding clause? That's news. Marcus Gee, 8:21 p.m. What a weird time to raise it, out of the blue during a debate. It's a Hail Mary pass. Brian Milner, 8:23 p.m. Alas, back to scandal. Marcus Gee, 8:24 p.m. Excellent off the cuff reply from Harper on the constitution. If it ain't borke, why fix it? Mary Janigan, 8:24 p.m. And harper wants to put back property rights. Which was another part of the deal made in late fall of 1981. We could spend the next five years talking constitution while the world passes us by. Marcus Gee, 8:25 p.m.Just what we need: Another constitutional debate! Canadians would rather eat glass.There you have it. PM Martin is insane, and playing with fire on many files here...
