Liberal MP fighting cancer delivers emotional speech calling for greater civility

Supreme Court Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin is to resign in December, and a Liberal MP returns to his old military stomping ground.

Liberal MP Arnold Chan, pictured with his wife Jean Yip, urged his colleagues to listen to each other in an often-emotional 20-minute speech to the House on Monday. Mr. Chan is currently fighting cancer that resurfaced last year but said he has no intention of stepping down. The Hill Times photograph by Rachel Aiello
