Deputy Speaker Royal Galipeau MUST RESIGN!

Tory MP and Deputy Speaker Royal Galipeau was behaving badly in the House of Commons on Wednesday and apparently laid hands on a fellow Member of Parliament while in a loud rage. He admits he lost his cool, but denies he behaved in an intimidating manner.

"Yes, I was pretty upset, but I was only upset because I was surprised." said Galipeau.

It doesn't matter what political party Galipeau belongs to - it doesn't matter what political party the assaulted MP belongs to.

If we do not want our Parliament to degenerate into what goes on in Taiwan, then there simply must be a ZERO tolerance policy when it comes to violent acts in the Canadian Parliament.

I am not calling for him to resign his seat, but I sure as HELL am demanding that he step down as Deputy Speaker. Today!

UPDATE:
Galipeau Apologizes - NOT GOOD ENOUGH - YOU CAN'T BE DEPUTY SPEAKER, MANDATED TO UPHOLD THE RULES OF THE HOUSE WHILE YOU ARE BREAKING THE RULES OF THE HOUSE - RESIGN!!!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

He also did not take accountability for his actions, and blamed it on his 'surprise.'

How about, there was no excuse for my actions. What I did was wrong, and I will provide a formal apology to the offended member of parliament and to all members of parliament.

"... and I hereby tender my resignation as Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons."

yes he should go.

Question- does parliamentary immunity apply to battery and or assault?

How about

"I sincerly applogize to the house and the member for ________ for my words my actions , and the disgrace I have brought upon the house and my possition. I really could not help myself, lying and kissing Harpers Ass is making me insane"

I know nothing about this. David Wu, my Representative in the US Congress, has not cast one single vote with which I disagree (and I track his voting on every measure). Were he to physically assault the most rabid neocon/theocon ideologue GOP pig in Congress, I would support a call for his resignation.

That is what I find so unbelievable about the Conservatives here. They are defending what he did by saying 'the other guy made him mad' - 'Galipeau is 60 and the Member of Parliament he assaulted is only 47' -
'Galipeau is smaller than the MP he attacked'.

These folks are unbelievable!!

Saying 'the other guy made me mad' is a criminal thinking error called misappropriation area. Nobody can make me mad. When I feel anger it is my anger that I feel by my own choice, and how I choose to respond to my anger is also my choice. Misappropriation error is most common among those with exceptionally concrete (black or white) thinking, and often indicates arrested social development.
