Rafferty stands up during marathon filibuster

The filibuster continues in the Commons, where the Harper government is trying to pass a bill to end the Canada Post labour dispute. It's not known when the debate will come to an end.  Its been going non-stop since Thursday evening.  The N-D-P is stalling the back-to-work bill, calling it Draconian.   Among the New Democrats who spoke in the debate Friday evening was Thunder Bay Rainy River MP John Rafferty.
