Harper plays games while democracy crumbles
My comment on the Globe and Mails recent story:
This is a non story, by casting it as some kind of tricky dilemma for the Liberals and NDP the Globe is accepting the Conservative game. You can almost hear the writer salivating at the dramatic irony of the opposition voting against more time in parliament when they threw such a fuss about prorogation!
Please, do you think we’re children? Harper apparently does, I expect better from the Globe and Mail. The problem with prorogation was not that parliament would not be sitting. It was that parliament was cut off during serious investigations into torture, a time of economic crisis and to deflect opposition attacks on the government.
Of course the opposition parties will agree to cancel their vacations. But its a moot point, because we should have an election before those vacations would occur anyways. Once the budget comes up for a vote, it should be voted down. This government has demonstrated they cannot be trusted with the reigns of power. This latest little trick is a side show meant to distract voters and the media. We’re not falling for it. I wish you wouldn’t either.
