The year so far in invoking Martin Luther King Jr.

Charlie Angus, last month, announcing his departure from Twitter. “Free at last. Free at last. Great God almighty free at last.”

John Williamson, last week, celebrating the end of the long-gun registry. “Free at last. Free at last. Law-abiding Canadians are finally free at last.”

That the latter doesn’t appear verbatim in Hansard is odd.
