February 29, 2016 (MercatorNet) — Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, seems fond of “whipping”, or forcing his MPs to follow the Liberal Party line. He criticized his Conservative Party predecessors for “whipping out Canada’s CF18’s” in the Middle East and whipped them back in last week.
Contemporaneously, the Liberal government’s House Leader, Dominic Leblanc, announced that the upcoming euthanasia bill would be whipped and Liberal Whip, Andrew Leslie, confirmed this. Now the Globe reports this latter whipping might be whipped back in “because of the sensitive subject matter … It’s possible ministers and parliamentary secretaries will still face a whipped vote, but not necessarily all MPs”.
I doubt Justin can spell ‘totalitarian utopianism’.
