Where are her priorities????????????
It seems in fact you are defending her actions Dr. G.

Yes one child has the right from her paid privileged position to try and thwart and demean the democratic process of this country. Quite frankly I am shocked at your attitude. It seems you have little respect for Parliament if you endorse or are willing to excuse such behaviour.

Defender her actions??? No way. She needs to understand the parliamentary procedures, and respect for this system. Only MPs can yell and scream at each other, but not even an MP can hold up a sign.

I am shocked quite frankly that some would try and defend her actions based on nothing else other than their own obvious political biases. Here we have a call from the opposition for greater decorum and respect for and in Parliament and yet those same people laud her actions. For shame.
Every Canadian should be allowed in the House of the People to peacefully and quietly protest the Government of the day. We too easily allow the politicians off the hook.

What the F does this have to do with the US... Gawd I get so tired of the constant US references... who gives a rats ass. Talk about fixations.

Not only do I believe her actions were right and proper, I applaud her bravery to express her opinion not just on a safe internet forum like this but in a time and place when a shadow of her future; dismissal, was immanent. It doesn't demean democracy it enhances our democracy.

Yes you are correct Dr.G. only those who are given permission may speak. Only those anointed and appointed by our Glorious Leader may practice party political activities while on the payroll of the senate.

BigDL, how on earth can you support this expression of hate speech??? Stop Harper??? She is asking for the next protest to be an overt act of stopping our elected Prime Minister. What next???? A cream pie in the face? A water balloon? This sort of free speech should be stopped and stopped ASAP. It can morph into a movement giving the average Canadian thoughts that even though was have a majority Conservative government, a non-Conservative thought might be allowed.

lol.

anyways, to expand on it. i have no problem with her getting fired. that is the price she has to pay for clearly stepping over the line regarding her position as an employee of the senate.

however, that doesn't diminish the bravery of her action. she knew she'd have to sacrifice her job (that she probably worked very hard to get) to express her disgust at Harper's policies going unchecked in our government.

It's really sad that some would criticize her for taking an honest stand on the floor of the senate, while they simultaneously defend conservatives who lie directly to parliament in the house.

Brigitte "Marcelle" DePape got fired for her transgression. Bev Oda got re-elected. Who really "dishonoured herself and her position for which she was being paid"??

I should think the dossier fattens as we type. Beware, Gr.G. even admonishing the likes of myself could land you in the clink.

I shall be free, before they come for me.

My thoughts are free, BigDL. Thus, they may imprison me, but if being in this sort of jail is the only place my body and beliefs may live together in peace, so be it. Paix, mon ami.

Indeed!
"You can lock a mouse or a man but not an idea." Tommy Douglas

Your bravery to consort with the rabble even in your days of "enlightenment" and attempting to share that enlightenment and mentor the incorrigible is inspiring.
