Harper's Damage to Democracy

This business of proroguing when there was an Afghan inquiry going on was a blatant attack on democracy and on the Parliamentary system. It is indeed unforgivable when Harper got elected on the platform of open and transparent government. Unfortunately, the alternative doesn't look good either. Where does Ignatieff stand on all of this? Every time he opens his mouth, he looks more and more like a Harper-clone or twin. It worries me where Canada is headed.

I came across a very good op-ed on this from the Toronto Star.

You can click here to read the op-ed.

One can only hope that at least Ignatieff will come out of his conservative coma and realize that he is leading the "Liberal" Party and not the "Reform" Party or Bush's Republican Party.
