House of Commons Ticker: The Omnibudget (C-38) Debate

  • UPDATE: As of 11:30 pm, it's officially over -- well, as far as report stage debate -- with not one of the hundreds of opposition-proposed amendments passed, but a clear sense of satisfaction -- and exhaustion -- on all sides of the House. In the end, the government got its bill, but the opposition made it work for it.

    Next up: Third reading debate, which will likely wrap up Monday night, whereupon C-38 heads off to the Senate.

    The much anticipated C-38 omnibudget vote-a-thon is in full swing in the House of Commons, with members expected to hit the halfway point -- which, in this case, works out to Vote #80 -- at noon.

    I'll be posting regular updates on the progress of the vote right here, so check back regularly for all the latest news.
