Harper to request Parliament be prorogued until March
Why would the dictator, er, I mean the Prime Minister make this request?
One reason: Such a move would halt the work of Parliamentary committees, including one that is investigating Afghan detainee abuse, an issue that has been plaguing the Conservatives for months.
Oh dear, so troubling...Detainees tortured? We don't want to deal with that.
Another reason: Harper will likely appoint another group of new Senators.
Recall Harpers promise to have an elected senate? Another empty promise.
From the same political leader that promised transperancy and accountability.
But, why load the Senate to create a majority position?
The Conservatives have been frustrated that the Liberal-dominated Senate has held up legislation already approved by the House
One piece of legislation rejected and rightly so was Bill C #6.
And, you know Canada has to get through the Olympics. That is such a priority!
Tanks, LRAD, Militarization , but not just Canadian soldiers.....
NAU partners: Canadian/ US/Mexican Military Coordination
This entire move worries me. Where is the effective opposition to this tyrannical move?
Could a false flag be on the horizon? With no effective government to respond?
Or will Canada finally and formally be told it is part and parcel of the NAU?
Questions, questions and more questions
Santa delivers the gift of the season, the gift of a Prorogue!
Parliament suspended until March
"It's almost despotic," Goodale told CBC News in an interview from Phoenix, Ariz. "Three times in three years and twice within one year, the prime minister takes this extraordinary step to muzzle Parliament. This time it's a coverup of what the Conservatives knew, and when they knew it, about torture in Afghanistan. So their solution is not to answer the questions but, rather, to padlock Parliament and shut down democracy."Almost despotic? Almost? No, it is despostic!
