The attempt by Pat Martin today, to defend his ill advised comments, in calling someone a fascist, a Mussolini was very disgraceful and his determination to refuse to apologize or withdraw them was appalling. He even went further and tried to use some house rule technicalities to allow him to get away with this school yard behavior (over ruled by the Speaker fortunately very quickly).
How often have we heard from Jack Layton and the NDP caucus that they want the level of debate to be raised in the house - obviously they don't want to lead by example.
aartin concedes that the word fascist, is considered unparliamentary by the rules of the House, but he states the rules are archaic,pleading that this should be changed retroactively so his words could be made acceptable - how arrogant and condescending can one get.
While Pat Martin was delivering his diatribe,that he should be allowed to be obnoxious and rude in the choice of his language in the House, it was particularly disturbing to hear other members of the NDP caucus snickering and laughing - I am anxious to learn if Jack Layton and Olivia Chow also descended to that low level of decorum and civility which would certainly give me good reason to question their integrity.
On this same day Charlie Angus NDP MP,was forced to apologize to the House for his "intemperate remarks" (his words) so it becomes painfully clear to Canadians that the Leader and the NDP caucus have allowed their actions to deteriorate in the house to a barn yard level and promises by Layton to raise the level of conduct and debate in the house have been an abysmal failure but not gone unnoticed by the Canadian taxpayer.

Is this not the norm in the House? I was under the impression that there had been no decorum since they started televising question period.

Today, a Liberal member of parliament called Harper a liar, which is also a no-no in the house.

There is most certainly a double standard in the House. The Grits and Dippers can make whatever outrageous statements they want yet they are the first to demand apologies when those same remarks are directed at them.

Well, I hope the Conservatives for now on can hold themselves to a higher standard than the lefties.

I've been in Ottawa for the past week, and just happened to catch question period in the house Tuesday, I believe. From what a saw, I was absolutely sickened. We don't have a government...we have a group of immature, whiney, excuses for public-servants screaming at eachother for an hour. We need mature government...NOW

Is there a need for Question Period?
It makes good media but it doesnt accomplish anything.
They ask outlandish questions that never get answered. There are no liable claims in the HOC so the HONOURABLE members can say what ever they want.
From my seat this is a waste of governments time.

I dont know am I alone on this?
