Tory Prime Minister Raymond Decelles-Smith notified the Governor General and the Leader of the Loyal Opposition that the Government has announced a special session of Parliament for the following dates in 2009.
The dates that the Parliament will be in session during the holiday recess is December 21-23 and again December 27-30, 2009.
Lambda celebrates Christmas Day on December 25 and Boxing Day on December 26.
Liberal Leader Sandra Lubrano commented upon the prime minister's call for a special session by stating that it is her hope that the session will address international environmental concerns and the international attempt by reactionary forces to legislate the execution of GLBT citizens or to imprison GLBT and friends and families who harbour them for long sentences. The Uganda issue, and international media complicity in the theocratic reactionary strategies were specifically mentioned by her.
In reply, the prime minister reiterated his pledge that there are international issues that have no partisan flavour and that all Lambda citizens in diaspora worldwide must support efforts to suppress it. He again mentioned that the political, economic and religious pieces must converge to create solutions.
"Nations who are silent, or not part of the solution, are complicit with genocide."
