Whips and Member Priviledge

An interesting article on a (brief) history of government whips. I’ll get into more detail on  party whips, backbenchers and other positions within the legislature in a up-coming tutorial on the Legislative branch.

Another article by John Ivison at the National Post on an upcoming Speaker’s ruling on the question of whether MP, Mark Waraw’s parliamentary privilege to speak freely in the House of Commons has been violated.
