Although not surprised, I am shocked and dismayed as once again Prime Minister Harper prorogues parliament, not for the good of the country but to avoid difficult issues that may further erode confidence in this government!
This is one more step in this government’s inexorable drift toward unchallenged power: ducking difficult questions around the Afghan detainees and attacking dedicated public servants, being absent for awkward issues like our border control in Cornwall, cutting off access to information, disrupting parliamentary committees, muzzling MP’s on virtually all issues, shutting down inquiries when the results don’t look good for the government – the list seems to go on and on.
