Sick. Just Bloody Sick.
I happen to be a monarchist. And as such, I like having the office of the Governor-General. It is in fact necessary for proper separation of powers under our form of government.
So I am at a loss to explain Ms. Jean's accession to Harper's stiff-arming the country into January before he acts on anything at all.
Harper has no mandate to govern, much less in the confrontational style he's been doing. He invited a vote of confidence and lost, and he damn well knows it.
The circumstances are dire, willing leaders are at hand, and yet the Governor general chose to help the PM circumvent Parliamentary procedure?
I'm fairly sure the GG's mandate must have something in it about acting for the good of the nation, no?
