Liberals Drop Motion Designed to Limit Opposition Power After Tussle in House
The Liberals have backed down from a controversial motion that would have given the majority government even more parliamentary power. And Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has apologized yet again for a tussle in the House of Commons.
Under increasing pressure from the opposition, the Liberals withdrew Motion No. 6, which would have stripped opposition MPs of their procedural tools to delay government bills and allowed cabinet to impose round-the-clock sittings to pass legislation such as Bill C-14, the law on doctor-assisted dying.
