5:46: The House is packed, and the crashing Baroque soundtrack CPAC uses during breaks has come to an appropriate climax. Let's get this party started, huh?
5:52: Applause and then silence. C-12, the Quarantine Act, is up first. Martin looks sad and worried as he sits down, although it could admittedly just be indigestion.
5:59: Applause for the MPs who've managed to turn up despite illness. Good on them; we're thankful.
6:04: C-9. Dull.
6:15: Motion 13. Here we go.
6:17: Chuck Strahl seems to be dressed as if on his way to a night at the opera.
6:19: Applause, as the Tory caucus finishes and the Bloc starts.
6:21: The Liberals start the nays.
6:22: The PM is smiling. I don't like that.
6:26: It seems David Kilgour can be bought, after all. And for so little, too; what happened to his list of ten demands?
6:26: 153-150. The speaker declares it carried. Now what?
6:27: The Liberal Whip shamelessly asks if the speaker would like to make carrying the motion require a unanimous vote. Lordy, girl; could you be any more slimy?
6:28: They're now on a double-check. Ooooh, Milliken, you suspense-building weenie.
This deserves to be finished in a second post, I think.
