House of Commons censures Maclean’s over Quebec article

Maclean’s magazine has done something that very few politicians have been able to to do, unify the House of Commons. MPs voted unanimously on Wednesday to censure the magazine over a controversial article which called Quebec “the most corrupt province.”
The motion was put forward by the Bloc Québécois.
According to Sun Media’s David Akin, independent MP Andre Arthur voiced his dissent but soon left the chamber and the motion was reintroduced and passed unanimously, gaining votes from MPs of all parties. Arthur slammed the motion as the House interfering with the press.
