My dog Melly doesn’t like Stephen Harper Proroguing the Canadian People or dogs either. She’s not so sure about cats and Hamsters though, and really likes Cheeseburgers.
CBC just released a poll showing that Canadians are really steamed about Proroguing.
“The poll, released exclusively to CBC News on Thursday, found the majority of Canadians surveyed — 67 per cent — are at least somewhat aware of Harper’s decision to prorogue, or shut down, Parliament until March.
Of those who were aware of the decision, 58 per cent opposed the move, the poll found. By comparison, 31 per cent of those polled supported the move.”
Those number echo our own poll which shows local voters not appreciating the move by the Harper Minority government even less.
“The EKOS poll also asked Canadians who were aware of the prorogation to choose which one of two statements most closely reflected their views.
Nearly two-thirds — 63 per cent — favoured the statement, “The elected house of Parliament is the proper place to conduct the business of the nation, and suspending Parliament is antidemocratic.”
There is also a facebook page Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament. To be fair there’s also Canadians FOR Proroguing Parliament who have a cute picture of Stephen Harper holding a little kitty before cooking it.
Here is our poll. Feel free to vote and post your comments:
