So, like everyone else with more than one functioning neuron, I think this is a terrible precedent. And I really really really hate it that Stevie 'won'. There is no more disgusting sight than a gloating bully.
But I've chilled a bit. And now I think that this decision is soooo Canadian. I think the GG weighed how loud the shrieeeeking would have been in the various scenarios and I think she went for least shrieeeekiest.
Think about it.
Coalition? Horrible hateful divisive well-financed shrieeeking from the Right.
Immediate election? Mewling and whining and grumbling from Everywhere.
Prorogation? Huffing and puffing and head-shaking from Political Elites and Sandal-Wearing Lefties.
Really. This is how we do things in Canada.
