Leading the way

Kuri points out some great news on the federal political scene, as the NDP will put forward a motion to bring the amended Bill C-30 back to the House of Commons.

Of course, it's still a shame that the other opposition parties refused to take a leadership role to get the ball rolling sooner. But since there's no apparent reason why either would vote against progress on a bill which they agreed to in committee, the motion should be virtually certain to pass. And that will leave only the question of whether the combination of the NDP's motion and a new public push from outside the Commons can force the Cons to accept the need to move the bill forward.

Update: The NDP's announcement is here, with a bit more material.
