We Won! At least we won a partial victory
During the Senate debate on the TPC SDO, the government “moved to rise and report progress” which, essentially, suspends the debate. It would appear the decision was taken because the government realized they would not win the vote. Rather than proceeding to a vote, and losing, the government exercised its privilege to call off the debate for now. We are unsure of the next steps but anticipate that the government will craft amendments to the SDO that will make it more palatable to the Senators who said they could not support it in its present form. Stay tuned…
Congratulations to all who helped our Senators to become more informed!
