History of parliamentarianism

The New Zealand legislature passed a gay marriage bill the other day( and since they get along fine without an upper house, it becomes law directly). Nice that Canada can claim to have led the way on this issue, but seeing this, one cannot help wishing we too had done it in parliamentary fashion (a big bipartisan consensus in NZ, actually).

Watch this speech by a NZ MP and you can't help but wish Canadians had real legislatures where parliamentarians' talk can actually mean something sometime.
