Budget Bill C-38: Canadian MPs, Citizens, Tweet Their Frustrations

For an incredible 24 hours, Canadian opposition MPs held up the passage of Stephen Harper and the Conservative government’s draconian budget Bill C-38. They forced votes on more than 800 proposed amendments to the 425-page behemoth. In the end the Conservatives torpedoed every opposition amendment, to score a dubious, dictatorship-style 159-0 “victory”. The tweets below testify to the opposition’s frustrations during the marathon vote. (Pic. NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair)
