Chantal Hébert on the same-sex marriage vote:

Still, Harper has earned a place in the history books for his efforts this week.
[...]
Harper became the first post-war Prime Minister to ask the Commons to consider taking away the rights of a Canadian minority.


She doesn't chew words on Dion either:
Over the course of his leadership campaign, Dion had argued that the Liberal approach of allowing rights to be subject to free votes was unacceptable.

But faced this week with a choice between backing off and enduring the first internal crisis of his short leadership tenure, Dion opted to once again leave his members free to choose, explaining that a motion did not require the same dose of party discipline as a full-fledged piece of legislation.
[...]
Under Dion's two predecessors, a federal party that takes pride of ownership of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms has treated it like a pull-down menu, allowing its MPs to pick and choose where they stood on gay rights.
