Triskaidekaphobia

Triskaidekaphobia is a fear of the number 13.

MPs defeat bid to reopen same-sex marriage debate
Motion tabled by Tories falls 175-123


13 Liberals voted For Reopening Debate On Same Sex Marriage


13 Conservatives,including 6 Cabinet Ministers, voted against Reopening Debate on SSM.

Tie. The votes cancel each other out. But it still leaves a resounding majority saying no. 162 - 110, ouch, spanked. Whipped or not.

What is interesting is; the who, that voted how.

Like the Liberals who opposed and voted against SSM last year, including a former Cabinet Minister who refused to be whipped voted against this motion.

Or Foreign Affairs Minister Peter MacKay who 'came out' against reopening debate. His vote canceled out his partner, in founding the new Conservative party, the RH Stephen Harper.
