@Kady: Tory move on Islamophobia motion could encroach on backbench power

Okay, let’s start on a positive note: It wasn’t the most disheartening moment in the history of the House of Commons.  There were no fistfights – or even elbow-jostlings – on the floor. No one attempted to grab the Mace, or was caught on mic bellowing out a particularly inappropriate heckle.  Even so, it’s...

@Kady: Senators may soon get to vote on trans rights bill

Last fall, it looked as though the Liberal government’s bid to extend full federal human rights protection to the transgender community could be enshrined in law by the end of the year.
