Congrats to Dan McTeague!

Today, Dan's private member bill on making RESP's tax deductible passed its second and third reading! This happened despite the Conservative caucus voting against it. Dan had the support of both the BQ and NDP.

This bill will help working parents save up for their children's future University and college careers. So much for the Conservatives caring about working families. Only when it's convenient for them.

For those of you Liberals who see Dan as some sort of maverick. This is the type of under the radar stuff that Dan has done for years. Dan is one of the hardest working MP's in Ottawa, and is extremely well respected in the riding of Pickering Scarborough-east. Keep up the good work.

Yeah... Great stuff Dan. Like voting for C-484, with the Cons. Let the religious zealots have more say in a woman's right to choose. "Congrats" Dan. Not exactly a "liberal" thing to do. I guess Dan got stuck on the Conservative fear-mongering about "the child", and forgot about the woman that bore him/her...

Real shame.

As for the anonymous comment bill C-484: What about the baby's right to choose? Heck, we allow abortions legally right up until birth - why stop there. Just because the baby's has been removed from the womb why can't the parents choose to abort the baby after birth? SUPPORT PARENT'S RIGHT TO CHOOSE! Let's draw the line at say ... 3 years old - when the child is old enough to get some food for themselves from the fride.
