Credit where credit is due .. even to the Conservatives

In the same vein as the post above, I read this powerful blog post about the failure of Parliament to block bill C-484. This private members bill seeks, among other things, to reintroduce the legal notion of a fetus as a person, the first step in criminalizing abortion.

In it, she commends the four Conservative MP's who stood and voted against the rest of their party. In doing so, they stood up for the rights of women. Good on her, and good on them. Maybe there are a few heroes left, after all.

Whooee! Dang right, JimmyBoy, credit where due. Even the Con's. ;)

I been noticing a lotta Grit bloggers an' commenters who are gettin' fed up to the teeth with their party and their leader. I figger us Greenies oughta launch an all out charm offensive an' woo the poor, disenchanted Grits over to our ranks.

I reckon in a few years, we'll be able to swallow up the Liberal Party like Harpoon's gang swallowed up the Pergressive Conservatives.
