Libby and Equal Voice's Day of Respect in Parliament

Ottawa: In an increasing shift away from the raucousness and rowdiness of a typical Question Period in the House of Commons, all parties made a special effort today to eliminate some of the antics common to QP and encouraged Members of Parliaments to be tough, not rough. “Libby Davies, House Leader for the New Democratic Party, took advantage of the day to underscore their efforts to make Parliament work, under often unpredictable and precarious circumstances. “The NDP has always been devoted to making the best use of MPs time and advancing the priorities of Canadians. Being respectful of our colleagues in the House, while continuing to ask the tough questions, is crucial to our success. “
