Tories in no hurry to vote on same-sex bill

The G&M (see the link above) reports that many Conservatives will want to speak against the same-sex marriage bill, the idea being to stretch out the process as much as possible. Neither the Liberals or the NDP seem keen on cutting-off the debate or forcing an immediate vote. So it'll be a long, hot couple weeks for MPs.

Update. A slightly different emphasis this morning in the Globe (see here): fewer Conservatives will speak against the bill than did at second reading.
