Harper To Suspend Parliament - Again

So here it is, just over a year later, & Great Leader Harper wants to prorouge again. By doing this he draws attention away from the Afghan detainee issue & will finally gain control of the Senate.

From QMI Agency:

The Conservative government will ask the governor general to suspend Parliament today, delaying the return of MPs until the beginning of March.


Preventing the return of Parliament until after the Olympics would effectively shut down all government committees, which would stop MPs from pursuing the Afghan detainee controversy until Parliament returned.


In early January, there will be five vacancies in the Senate, all of which Harper could fill with Tory loyalists. Even though the new senators would give the Tories majority over the Liberals in the Senate, the Liberals retain their majority on Senate committees until the next general election or until Parliament is prorogued.

Wake up Canada! Wake up Opposition! Do we want to continually be manipulated by Stephen Harper control freak?

What? This is the first I've heard of this! (I'm kinda taking a news/blog break...Now look what I've missed, eh?) This is ridiculous!

Hm. I am just seeing this on CBC right now! Parliament is coming back March 3 with a throne speech, I see, and a budget on March 4.

I tend to agree: this is a distraction from the Afghan detainee committee....
