NDP Candidate for SD&SG Darlene Jalbert will be attending the Rally; Saturday January 23, in Ottawa.
She’ll be making the journey to Parliament Hill from Cornwall Ontario as will many area residents.
There are over 200,000 people signed up for the facebook page against proroguing. Meanwhile Conservative MP Helena Guergis suggests that “people are pleased with prorogation”
“I am familiar with that, but that’s certainly not what I’ve heard when they (people) come into my constituency office and we have a conversation about taking a step back and recalibrating and taking a look at the global economic crisis,” said Guergis. “It is important that we take a step back and take a look at the agenda and make sure we are on the right track.”
Instead of outrage, Guergis said people are “pleased” with the shutdown.
“It’s a great opportunity to further consult with Canadians,” she said. “They are pleased with the direction of the government and the Economic Action Plan and they are pleased we are taking a step back.”
Guergis said “things have changed very quickly since the last election” and reiterated “it’s important to take a step back and make sure we are on the right track.”
