Okay, Mr. Harper, let's have a little chat, shall we?
You pulled this last year, remember? You'd got caught in some crisis or other, and your brilliant solution then was to dissolve Parliament until the heat blew over. Now, when there's another crisis, your solution?
Dissolve Parliament again.
Harper, in case you missed the memo, there's a lot of problems facing not only Canada but the rest of the world as well, and your convenient hiding out is serving neither you nor your party nor your country all that well.
Yes, yes, I've heard the "official excuse", some piece of twaddle about making it easier for MPs to attend the Olympics in BC. Harper, that has to be the lamest piece of side stepping I've heard out of Ottawa in a very long time, and that would include anything trotted out by Mulroney or Chrétien, both of whom were far more adept than you at this kind of nonsense.
So shape up, bud. You serve as Prime Minister at the will of the people, remember? Your party can be wiped off Parliament and reduced to a minimal presence with one simple election — or have you forgotten the election that saw the PCs with six seats?
Man up, mister, and get Parliament back to work. Canada doesnt have time for this bullshit.
