PM Harper not in the House of Commons for QP or Tributes to Speaker Milliken

The Prime Minister was absent from the House of Commons today for both Question Period and the tributes to the retiring Speaker of the House, Peter Milliken.  Mr. Milliken will not be running in the upcoming election and will vacate his post as Speaker with Parliament's dissolution, should the government lose the non-confidence vote today. 

Pretty shameful that the Prime Minister was not in the House to provide tribute to the longest serving Speaker of the House of Commons in Canadian history.  Shame.

Not sure about that. All research I have done on this comment suggests that 2 NATO soldiers were killed on Wednesday. Which is regretable.

However, equally more regretable is your stupidity. Check your facts, the soldiers killed were British and our PM was NOT with their families when he should have been in the House of Commons showing some decent respect for democracy.
