The Asbestos Scandal
On Tuesday, Pat Martin, an NDP Member of Parliament, moved a motion at the Natural Resources Committee to cut the $250,000 the asbestos lobby gets from the government. The Conservatives, who say they believe in free enterprise, voted against this. The Bloc, who say they believe in social justice, voted against this. The Liberals, who believe in everything (or is it nothing?), voted against this.
So another quarter million dollars will go to the purveyors of suffering to the third world.
I was there -- pretty sad.
