Conservatives and Rules

This is the short version of what you have read about prorogation and what you are reading about Ignatieff being acclaimed Liberal leader: It was totally okay for Harper to ignore centuries of parliamentary tradition regarding prorogation, but it’s totally undemocratic that Ignatieff be acclaimed leader of the Liberals in the face of no significant opposition.

  1. Did people vote for prorogation any more than they voted for a coalition? No! They voted either for individual MPs or parties – to be their representatives. All parties are trying their best to represent their respective mandates.

    To me, the difference is Rae and LeBlanc volunteered to step down for greater good (co-operation), instead of trying to leverage a minority against greater good (unfair competition, IMHO).
