Conservative Senate Leader Don Plett has asked the Speaker to rule on whether it’s acceptable for a member of the upper house to hold an eagle feather when speaking in the chamber, saying he’s concerned that using this sort of “prop” may be against the rules.
Plett rose on a point of order Thursday when Manitoba Sen. Mary Jane McCallum, a Cree senator and a residential school survivor, was delivering a speech on Bill C-15, government legislation to enshrine the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) into Canadian law.
