What's undemocratic is shutting down Parliament until January 27th. I agree with Kitty. Harper is easily the worst Prime Minister in a long time...and he's screwing the country over, and setting a scary precedent. When you no longer have the support of the House (all the OTHER duly elected officials in the federal system, who currently make up 62% of the country's vote), you're not supposed to hide behind the Governor General and suspend Parliament to keep your position. Coalitions work in many countries around the world. It can work here. And don't B.S. me about the 'separatists', for God's sake. Like they'd dare try to start their own 'distinct society' with the coming recession about to flatten everyone. If Harper had gotten his snotty rich-bitch head out of his ass, and actually announced something POSITIVE through Flaherty's waste of time 'announcement' in the House, instead of thinking he could bankrupt the other parites with withdrawal of public funding so he could eventually be declared KING, we wouldn't be in this mess. Don't put this back on the opposition parties. Harper did this, and unless he comes up with something worthwhile on January 26th and
27th, he's toast, and someone has to step in. Good riddance. If you've read ANY of the dogma he and his cronies bring with them from the extreme right to this 'new' Conservative party, you would already know that his goal is to empty the Federal coffers so no social aid is available from the Fed level, and create autonomous states out of the provinces. His main reason for doing so is to create a powerful West, because he loves Alberta, and really doesn't care about the rest of the country. Read his literature. It's in there. At that point, maybe he'd attempt to sell off pieces of the divided Canada as States to the U.S., and get some kind of commission for doing so. Harper's a piece of garbage, and needs to be taken out like one.

All true, JB. But I go back to the scariness of the coalition, being led by a man whose own party doesn't want him, etc., etc.
I'm really starting to lean towards wanting another election, so the coalition can run as such, and at least voters will know what they're voting for: King Steve, or the leftist coalition.

I agree with Bobbycakes .Let tempers defuse for a bit . Let us all ( including our overpaid members of parliament ) have a peaceful Christmas and then we can ring in our new year with another costly election.
p.s. If women ran the world you would all be standing in the proverbial corner and early to bed with no dinner .

Ditto to JB.

That's all I can say cause he's said it all so well.

I actually totally agree with JB for once. How have Canadian citizens managed to forget that this whole fiasco is on Harper's shoulders. He's the one who's been trying since day one to bully Parliament, the media and the people of Canada into doing things his way and in his best interests.
