This is quite an amazing spectacle as commenters keep adding links to stories about Harper and his puppets' complete disdain for democracy and Canadian values.
I was resistant to the idea of joining Facebook (and I've been getting snarked by internet pals now that I've relented) and I doubt I'll do anything with my account after this is over, but seriously, this really may be the beginning of something MASSIVE.
If you don't belong to Facebook, consider joining. At least, check out the wall.
And if any of your friends need further convincing, send them a link to this excellent column, Prorogation redux: Harper in contempt of Parliament, by Errol P. Mendes, professor of constitutional law.
The highest duty of a Prime Minister of Parliament is to uphold the Constitution of Canada, which includes the rights and privileges of the House of Commons and the duties owed to the Queen's representative in Canada. Stephen Harper keeps on failing in his duties on both counts as evidenced by the second prorogation of Parliament on Dec. 30.
