What gall! What an affront to our system of government! And considering how much work is going to be wasted, what a waste of money!
The House of Commons and the Senate will come back in March, after the Vancouver Olympics, for a Speech from the Throne and a budget. The move will have the effect of stalling all bills currently in Parliament, including crime bills that the government had said were being delayed by the opposition.
Well, so much for the ReformCons using “soft on crime” ads against the Libs in the next election!
A post-Olympic return would also shut down government committees, which would stop MPs from pursuing the Afghan detainee controversy until Parliament returned.
… which, of course, is the REAL reason behind this.
I am almost physically SICK to my stomach over this! How can anyone, ANYONE consider voting for these dictators????
