How Manitoba Senators Voted on Bill S-10admin | Friday, December 21st, 2012 | No Comments »
“The vote in the Senate means that Canada could have the weakest legislation in the world unless MPs are willing to make some much needed amendments. As a country that has never used or produced cluster munitions, Canada can and should have the best legislation in the world. Mines Action Canada and its colleagues in the Cluster Munition Coalition hope that all Members of the House will work to ensure that Canada is a leader in protecting civilians, as well as ensuring that no Canadian will ever use this banned weapon for any reason, anywhere, at any time, for anyone” said Paul Hannon, Executive Director.
Manitoba has six senators.
Those who voted against amendments and in favour of passing the flawed bill:
JoAnne Buth (Conservative)
Don Plett (Conservative)
Terry Stratton (Conservative)
Janis Johnson (Conservative)
Those who voted for amendments:
Maria Chaput (Liberal)
Rod Zimmer (Liberal)
The MBCBL thanks Senators Chaput and Zimmer for standing up for the spirit and intent of the Convention on Cluster Munitions.
