Today during the second Status of Women committee meeting after the Liberals’ juvenile and intolerant “walkout” over MP Rachael Harder’s Chair nomination, the Liberals and NDP voted down her nomination and chose London Conservative MP Karen Vecchio instead.
How did this happen? Because the Liberals walked out during the last meeting, quorum was lost and they had to go through the nomination process again. MP Karen Vecchio renominated Rachael but the Liberals and NDP voted down her nomination. Sheila Malcomson (sole NDP member on the committee) nominated Karen to be Chair. Karen then requested to have her name withdrawn, but in order for that to happen she needed unanimous consent (since there was no chair to rule). She didn’t get it which meant she was forced to take the Chair position. Not only did the Liberals dramatically break precedence but they manipulated the rules and pushed women on the committee around to fit their own agenda.
Despite calls to the Liberal members by thousands of women across the country to be inclusive and open-minded, they once again proved that they don’t support the elevation of young women in politics unless they are cookie-cutter Liberal abortion supporters.
Because of this, I decided to put together the top #standwithRachael tweets and posts since this situation hit the news, so you can decide for yourself which type of politicians you want to lend your support to in the future.
I got mad the day it happened.
Looks like Trudeau’s base is also turning on him.
Couldn’t agree more, Senator.
Our feminist foremothers are rolling in their graves.
Some abortion supporters on Twitter thought it best to start attacking Ms. Harder personally.
The liberals ignore pro-life women as well as women who have been harmed by abortion.
The two positions are not mutually exclusive.
Because it’s 2017.
I would like to know the answer to this question.
More women to ignore.
Nice to see some MP’s acknowledge the value of having young women in politics.
They’re feminists…but only support “certain” women.
Who listens to statistics anymore?
