So we didn't vote for a coalition...then I guess we voted to suspend parliament for 6 weeks? Oh wait, we didn't vote for that either, but I don't hear anyone who buys Harper's self-serving BS crying about that.

Actually, the present incarnation of the party is hardly conservative in the Canadian tradition. It is far more radical and American-style. If you consider tearing apart Canadian institutions and ideals, healthcare etc., or trying to, conservative, then I suppose you can be happy. But to me, being a...

hey alyoung, you wanna come up with a different comment instead of copying and pasting the exact same one to multiple threads? You already posted this to the article on what we do next and protests. If it happens again I'll delete the comment due to our rules re redundancy.

Polls show a lot of confusion if anything, mainly because people are foggy on how our democracy works and what has actually happened. You should that yourself in buying the line that the coalition was undemocratic, when in fact it was perfectly democratic. What is undemocratic is Harper not letting ...

Yup. Willing to create a unity crisis--and it is his own rhetoric that is reopening that old wound--to save his own career.

Yeah, why no conditions at least? I also find it sickening that Harper was ready to stick a crowbar in the country and pry it apart to save himself. The reality is that it's his own and his party's rhetoric that is reigniting the sovereigntist cause, because he has essentially burned bridges to appe...

This is also a major precedent as I understand it--now, any PM who wants to escape a confidence vote can go to the GG and do the same.

I think Harper is a coward. I am so mad right now. He knew he'd lose, so he decided to buy himself time (after delaying the vote by a week to do the same), and we know that during that time he will be focusing on pumping out a massive amount of propaganda to sway the public to Harper's side. I just ...

Never mind Dion's leadership. What about Harper's? The man took an election win, and through sheer arrogance, managed to alienate and unite the entire rest of the House. Meaning that Conservative cabinet ministers who just got back to Ottawa are facing the loss of their positions already. For such a...

You can't say on one hand that Duceppe stated the coalition has refused to acknowledge Quebec's nationhood, and then say on the other hand they've agreed to acknowledge it, since you're disproving yourself. The bottom line is that the Bloc has pledged to support the federalist government for some ti...

I'm just reading through all of your posts with delight, noticing all the long-time Vive le Canadians I haven't seen around in one place for a while. Excellent posts! I'm toasting you all with a virtual beer!! Or three. Too bad we can't all get together face to face to share a real one. [B-o] [B-o] ...

"I don't think anybody really takes the right wing media here in Canada very seriously (see Conrad Black conviction). There is an entertainment value to reading them, as with all fictional works." Hahaha! Love that comment. Sadly, living in Alberta, I can say that it seems many people around me take...

The bottom line is that Harper did this to himself. He could have shown leadership and put forward initiatives that everyone could agree on--instead he as much walked up to the opposition parties and slapped them in the face. He as much as told them he would try to cripple them all. Guess he didn't ...

The EU currently has some mechanisms in place to ensure some democratic oversight of the union, including elected representatives for the entire EU, etc. The current US-Canada-Mexico agreements contain no such democratic mechanisms at all and are all about corporate rights. But we can't assume that ...
