Guelph's Liberal MP blinks first, says he doesn't support the coup

Thank you Mr. Valeriote, for being the first Liberal MP to take a stand against this undemocratic coalition.

Hopefully, you'll be the first among many.

UPDATE: Amm, apparently he's trying to clarify his comments... not sure what to think, or sure where he stands, but I'm assuming he's trying to say he still supports the deal?

    Why are you lying about this being undemocratic ? No real Canadian Conservative would lie about Parliament this way. I just can't believe how republican you have all become.I guess Canadian conservatism become so American when it was taken over by Albertans.
    I know you won't post this. But that part of me that is genetically Orange protestant conservative is ashamed of such wanton untruths about the nature of British constitutionalism. One of the greatest gifts Britain ever gave to the world.

    And the first Conservative MP to reach across the isle is also from Guelph. Maybe there is hope.

    Is this the guy your candidate lost to?

    Three cheers to you, Mr. Valeriote, for standing up for Canada. It is time for some sanity amongst the wrecking crew in Ottawa.

    I hope there are a few more principled and brave souls in the Party of Pearson and Trudeau.

    Jerry, it is undemocratic because those voters who vary between Liberal and Conservative, in particular the federalist in Quebec, who voted Liberal because Dion said no coalition, would likely not have voted that way if he had said yes to a coalition during the election because it make the BQ the king makers and weaken the federalist stand. Just look at how Parizeau supports this coalition, and he is about as separatist as a person can be. That is why this is undemocratic.

    Is it constitutional, certainly. That is how the parliamentary system works.

    I'm very glad to see you give credit where its due. Not that you haven't done it before, but in such troubling political times, its good to see civility and human decency still come into play. I still support the Tories 100%, but we need to be conciliatroy if we want to remain in power and people of your stature (referring to your EDA role) need to be making comments like this to ensure this happens.
