Remember when Sheila Copps said she would resign if the GST was not repealed? It will be interesting to see if Sukh Dhaliwal will follow Copps example and live up to his promise to resign.
At a candidates’ debate yesterday morning, Liberal Sukh Dhaliwal pledged to resign if New Democrat Jinny Sims could confirm her statement that Dhaliwal has the 13th worst attendance record in the House of Commons.
The fact is that Sukh Dhaliwal missed 69 votes – the 13th worst attendance record of all MPs.
It is also interesting to note that the record for the worst attendance goes to Michaeil Ignatieff who missed 135 votes. Not far behind Ignatieff was PM Stephen Harper who missed 82 votes.
The information on how many votes that individual members of parliament missed comes from the website How’d They Vote.
