Bill C-10 hits speed bump as Speaker voids dozens of 'secret' amendments

Speaker Anthony Rota declared dozens of amendments added at committee after debate time ran out null and void, and ordered the bill to be reprinted without them.

you're still flogging this... still? Again:


Liberals try to secretly amend the CRTC internet regulation bill, the Speaker removes the amendments.

no... unless you're suggesting "secret amendments" as ones voted on, accepted and passed by the related Heritage Committee - as in NOT secret!

again, points in fact:
=> the Speaker ruled the respective amendments in question be voided since they were passed by the Heritage Committee after the allotted debate period time was exceeded
=> in followup closing debate before the entire HOC, these amendments were reinstated (again, NOT secretly) and Bill C-10 was passed by the HOC (with votes received from Liberals, Bloc & NDP)
