Will Inky Mark Defer His Retirement To Help Pass Bill C-391 Repealing The Gun Registry?

Nah. Probably not, though there's a petition asking him to. Its got a whole 126 signatures. (But if it does happen, tell folks you heard it here first.)

Speaking of stupid petitions: there's also that one calling for a repeal of section 13 of the CHRA that I wrote about back in April . Remember? It was high profile stuff; Tory Senator Doug Finley was going to present it to Parliament when it reached 100,000 signatures. So far they're stuck at 336.

And then there's the Fox News North Facebook page, which has a whopping 1,609 followers.

Anyway, I forget what my point was.

Inky Mark, a strange name indeed.

Thanks for posting that, I thought those kind of rancid movements were moving at a much faster pace. Nice to know only 336 wingnuts signed to repeal section 13. Mind you, 336 is too many. Yikes! Embarrassing!

Good catch, BCL. He has officially resigned now, however:

The release hasn't come out from Elections Canada yet, but the Speaker did indeed receive the notice that Mark was resigning September 15, and it's posted at the link above.

Thanks PG, I read your(?) tweet earlier and thought HFS! What if he decides to hang on after all?

I'm clearly too old-skool to know what 'HFS' means, BCL. Sigh ... I'll never keep up with you crazy kids. ;-)
