I blogged the other day on the changing positions of the NDP’s Pat Martin on the accountability act, but reading an account of his behaviour in the HoC ethics committee yesterday one has to wonder if he’s taken to hanging-out with Pierre Poilievre or something. This is just bizzare:
However, Mr. Szabo's effort to ensure the committee acts within its mandate dissolved into a confrontation with New Democratic Party MP Pat Martin, who pitched his pencil over a committee table and stormed over to Mr. Szabo to accuse him of stalling his efforts to get an ethics committee inquiry off the ground.
"You're a disgrace," Mr. Martin told Mr. Szabo, who remained seated in his chair. "That's it. You're done."
Sticks (and pencils) and stones, Pat. At least he didn’t ask him if he had the gonads to chair this meeting, or challenge him to a duel or something. Yeah, he's a disgrace Pat, and you're a credit to your party. Really classy.
P.S. CBC compiled this entertaining list of parliamentary insults awhile back, enjoy. Recommend this Post on Progressive Bloggers
