Congratulations to the Albertans on that occasion!

Now how do we get Parliament to duplicate the feat?

How? Elect an NDP gover -

Oh yeah. That ship has sailed.

Lobby our own MPs, I guess; Trudeau seems to be pretty good on the symbolic stuff, there's a chance. (In truth, I didn't know that they'd locked the front doors of Parliament; sad to learn it.)

That ship may return for another go in 2019. Best to be ready for that to whatever degree possible.

Meantime, I'm not sure that the Centre Block front doors have been locked. I'm remembering from when Jack Layton was lying in state that those of us waiting in line to pay our respects before they took his remains back to Toronto, we were all funnelled through a security screening side door just under the main doors. And this was a couple of years before last year's bloodshed.

Possibly that was done just for special occasion efficiency, then. Maybe someone reading this has recently visited and can tell us.

Hello? Is anybody out there ? ....
