stephen harper: "the prime minister has the moral responsibility to respect the will of the house"

On April 13, 2005, during Question Period, Stephen Harper, then the Leader of the Opposition, said:
Mr. Speaker, last night the House voted to hold a public inquiry into the Air-India tragedy. In fact, members representing every party in this House voted for that motion. The Prime Minister has the moral responsibility to respect the will of the House and the wishes of the families.

Will the Prime Minister respect this vote and immediately call a public inquiry into the Air-India tragedy?

Emphasis added.

Mr. Harper, will the Prime Minister respect this vote and immediately implement a program to allow conscientious objectors and their immediate family members to apply for permanent resident status and remain in Canada; and immediately cease any removal or deportation actions against such individuals?

Don't forget to ask him.

Respecting the will of the majority even when it contradicts his partisan nature and adherence to a narrow ideology - is hell freezing over, or have the Leafs won the cup somehow?
