Is the PMO's hold on the mad dogs slackening?

The true colours are beginning to show on the Tory back bench, as Tory MP Maurice Vellacott attacks the Supreme Court and Chief Justice MacLachlin. But he's not speaking for the government, so that's all right then... The Star reports:
"Beverley McLachlin herself actually said that when they step into this role all of a sudden there's some mystical kind of power comes over them by which everything that they ever decree then is not to be questioned," he told CBC-TV, referring to the chief justice of the Supreme Court. "They take on these almost god-like powers. And (McLachlin) said that herself. I didn't say that."
A charge against abortion and same sex marriage is probably not far behind I guess.
