James Lunney tries to explain reasons for leaving Conservative caucus

Nanaimo-Alberni MP James Lunney tried to go a little deeper yesterday into his reasons for leaving the Conservative caucus, but he was shut down by the House of Commons speaker before getting very far.

Lunney used what’s known as a “Question of Privilege” to rise in the Commons. He started by saying there are growing concerns in Canada that a “Christian World View” is being suppressed in law, medicine and academia, and he claims it’s spilling over into politics.

Lunney ran into trouble, though, because of the strict rules around Questions of Privilege.

In the end, his speaking time was cut off after about ten minutes because he couldn’t get consent to continue.

Here’s a link to Lunney’s full statement.
