    Parliament recessed yesterday. Remember that feeling of last day of school? Thats it! I'm glad to be going home to Vancouver even if the weather has been a little crappy. I feel pretty proud of the NDP caucus in Ottawa. It's a hard working group and we gave it our all on many issues. Big shout out to jean crowder our aboriginal affairs critic who pushed the govt on freezing funds to aboriginal youth programs. She asked a great question in the house yesterday on this - which was also National Aboriginal Day. I'm hopeful the funds will flow due to political and community pressure.

    Some may say the outcome of these votes against Bill C38 is inevitable - and they are right in an immediate sense - but think about it in the longer term - its the beginning of something bigger to reject these harmful mean policies that increase the divide between wealth and poverty in Canada. More and more people are speaking out, so I believe, it's a day we move forward to reject the most right wing government we' ve ever had.

    Hello Dear fb friends.... A little update for you... First it's so amazing so many people are paying attention to the c38 fight. This really makes a difference I can tell you. So hang in there! The speaker is reading through mountains of amendments (which is good) and we'll start voting after midnight - EST. I'll keep you all posted as the votes go on and the night progresses. Look at it this way - each amendment we vote on represents THOUSANDS of people who have spoken out and abhor what this conservative govt is doing. As my mum would say..... "they'll get their come uppence".

    Wow Your comments keep me going all the way! It's such an unreal world here- except what we are debating is real - and really hurts people. I wish we had more time to show the growing depth of opposition. But of course that's what they don't want.

    We're into the late show on the bad budget bill C 38. The Cons are oblivious to the growing opposition to this bill. Whether its EI, pensions, gutting enviro rules, no housing, job cuts, giving more power to Ministers, and the list goes on and on.

    Will the sun come out for Italian Day on the Drive? I hope so. Then on to Ottawa - I'm ready to vote at all hours to show how Canadians loathe the mega budget bill. Never give up; by keeping the pressure up on the Conservative government we can show what people really think.

    We voted late last night on government estimates (money), but a highlight was also voting on a private members Bill - C279 - put forward by my colleague Randall Garrison, MP for Esquimalt Juan De Fuca. This Bill, calls for the protection of gender identity and expression under the Human Rights Act and was passed by 150-132. It was really good to see some Conservative members vote for the Bill. Randall, along with many people in the LGBT community worked very hard to get the Bill through 2nd Reading. Its a beautiful example of how a concerted and organized effort can make a real difference. I also want to give a big shout out to former MP Bill Siksay, who first introduced this Bill that was approved in the previous parliament. That Bill made it to the Senate but was not passed because of the 2011 federal election. So this new victory is all the more important. We now have to get the Bill through the Committee process!

    Well, it was 15 years ago today that I was first elected MP for Vancouver East! there are only 4 of us left from the class of '97 - Pat Martin , Peter stoffer and Yvon Godin! Happy anniversary to you 3! And to Alexa McDonough who was our NDP leader. I can't believe 15 years have gone by so fast. I love representing the great community of East Vancouver. Thank you to the great folks of our community who make east van a place of activism, vision, and care. All I can say is, I go back into parliament on Monday feeling the strength of so many progressives across the country, and the "casseroles " of change in the air!
