Around roughly 5PM MST, the House of Commons were scheduled to have their final reading and vote on the new constitution for the Dominion of British North America.
Around this time, the head of the National Union of Syndicalists (NUS) took to the floor in protest due to the “lack of outline for basic civil rights” and “no formidable structure for state’s rights or legislature.”
Sebastian went on to motion late into the third reading for a new constitutional convention late to be convened where all members of the House of Commons would 'attend and contribute as opposed to the few in the higher echelon of government that originally drafted the document'.
Following this motion, three other members of parliament had seconded but the Clerk of the House reminded them that 'deferment to Committee was to be proposed following the second reading'.
The Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition made a statement rebuking some of the Criticisms by Members of the Conservative and Syndicalist Parties with this statement: “While I do not agree with the harshness of your criticisms, I do concur that the document requires a more specific nature in order to be interpreted correctly. We simply can not leave any part of our constitution to be exploited.”
A subsequent statement by the Prime Minister went further stating, “It's very pertinent that we get our country off the ground to begin with, we can make amendments to the constitution following the passing of the constitution, and if we shoot down the bill now, it will be a long period of time before we can rerun this bill, and it may kill any momentum we have.” -PM Forsberg.
Following these statements, the majority of Parliament members present have so far voted in favor, including the Syndicalists. However Sebastian has quoted: “If the conservatives won’t stand by the people, we will.”
