Another MP who should have the 'Honourable' removed from his title; he too gave an inappropriate gesture when he found he had nothing intelligent to say.
Soon these guys won't even need talking notes. They can just flip and flap like a goose in heat, to make their point.

We've got to start demanding better. We pay them a very good salary and we expect them to act like adults. If they can't do that they need to be removed.
OTTAWA - Obscene gestures in the House of Commons had the Liberals and Tories at each other's throats Wednesday, with the opposition calling for the heads of a pair of MPs for bad behaviour.
The schoolyard-style spat was sparked by rude gestures made by Conservatives Jacques Gourde and Pierre Poilievre during a vote on a motion to protect Canadian dairy products on Tuesday night.
While both MPs later apologized, the Liberals remained miffed, and demanded Prime Minister Steven Harper sanction Gourde and Poilievre who are parliamentary secretaries to the agriculture minister and the Treasury Board president, respectively.
'' these actions were not simply insulting to Parliament, but showed contempt and disrespect for all Canadians in this institution,'' Liberal Leader Bill Graham said.
