Bill C-304: The Final Battle?

The other bill they want to pass is C-304, which would strip section 13 (the hate speech clause) from the Canadian Human Rights Act.  When Senate Leader Marjory LeBreton first suggested the possibility of an extension, James Cowan suggested that the Liberal minority would fight if the Tories brought  in closure or time allocation.  If he's serious, I'm pretty sure the Libs up there can stall this one past the end of session.  Then, assuming parliament gets prorogued (as everyone seems to think), the bill goes back to the back of the Queue. Hey presto!  Stalled for another year or three!   Lets see what kind of resistance our lads and lasses are willing to put up.
