The story's claim of all-party criticism of the bill is overblown, as the only Tory they could find to speak out was Senator Nancy Ruth. Nevertheless, I think Joe Comartin is correct when he says:
“The Prime Minister, on more than one occasion, seemed to indicate to the media that he was not in favour of doing away with it,” Comartin says. “There are a number of different communities – the Jewish community, the Islamic community in Canada – are very opposed to that being done away with.”
Certainly the gov's official response to the bill thus far is to pretend that it doesn't exist.
