Senator opposes bill on child support legislation

>From the AP wire, via aol:

OTTAWA (AP) -- A Liberal senator who opposes child support legislation might be thrown off a committee to get the bill passed into law.
      Senator Anne Cools has sided with Tory senators who say changes to the Divorce Act are too hard on dads. And her position has delayed the bill in the Senate social affairs committee.
      "She has frustrated the will of the government," said Liberal Senator Peter Bosa, deputy chairman of the committee, which will decide before Monday whether Cools can stay.
      The legislation, which among other things would allow the government to revoke the passports of deadbeat dads, easily passed in the House of Commons last fall.
      The committee, charged with making recommendations to the Senate, held public hearings this week before adjourning in a deadlock.
      The changes, which women's groups have spent years fighting to obtain, could be delayed or even defeated in the Senate, where the Liberals have a one-seat majority. A tie vote means defeat.
      A defiant Cools said Thursday that even if she's kicked off the committee, she'll vote against the bill in the Senate.
      "It has been open season on men for too long," said Cools, who last month commented that "behind every abusing husband is an abusing mother."
