Thousands protest proroguing of Parliament | Canada | News | Toronto Sun
Poporoguing parlament is a clear depiction of what Harper really thinks of Democracy. It is known that no PM has the right to Porogue parlament when the house is in the middle of a serious debate about the Afghan detainee torture.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
Harper finds it ideal timing to shut down the work of the Canadian people because he knows that there is a serious problem that is not about to go away quietly.
The Harper bunch had their chance to show what they can do for the Canadian people, and this far they have done nothing woth praiseing, if anything BAD RED INK
AND LOTS OF HYPOCRITICAL LEADERSHIP.
I want to see these misfits out in the next federal election.
Parliament is not Harpers play ground, it is tha place of taking care of the peoples business, and loosers' like the Conservatives must be brought to being a looser opposition once again like they did in the back in the 90s with just 2 seats in the house.
Hey, Socrates, where ya been?
Please read the link from Avro's post below:
The King of Proroguing.
Prorogation is a normal part of Parliamentary procedure, nothing anti-democratic in it at all..........
Parliament Hill web cam showed no more than 1500 of which at least 100 would have been security people. Reporters are trying to spin the numbers and the results but web cams and cell photos do not lie.
Hey jay 3000 + people and many more in other cities demonstrating against the Harper thugs is a clear message to the Conservative bon heads in Ottawa.
If the 3000"+" headcount is accurate (who did the counting?), it doesn't seem to be much of a clear message to me, other than it's one of those "who cares?" situations. Over 10,000 people attended a little garlic festival here in 100 Mile House, BC last year. I could interpret that to mean over 3 x as many people are more interested in garlic than they are in the evils of proroguing by Mr. Harper.
Of course, I'd have to factor in the population difference between Ottawa and 100 Mile House, BC to come up with a more realistic comparison!
I give you the biggest proroguing hypocrit, Bob Rae.
