BUDGET MAY PASS: ILL TORY MP MAY MISS VOTE

Seems the Liberals want to take advantage of cancer-ridden MPs now.

Darrel Stinson, Conservative MP, is scheduled for cancer surgery on Wednesday next week and will likely be too ill to attend the May 19th budget vote. Which means the Liberal budget may go through after all. Conservatives are accusing the Liberals of taking advantage of the ill health of a member but there may be nothing they can do.

Besides, the Liberals can accuse the Tories of doing the same thing. One of the Liberal MPs can't vote because, well, he's dead. The byelection to replace him is May 24th and that is expected to boost the Liberals' numbers up in the Commons.

The Tories and Bloc also adjourned Parliament again today as the hijinx continue.
