Git Governing!

GovernanceThere are plenty of political watchers, reporters and pundits bursting with excitement over the Senate scandal unfolding in Ottawa, and yes, this is big news, but is any actual work getting done up there? Certainly the situation needs to be resolved, and steps need to be taken so that this kind of thing doesn’t happen again. In the meantime though, is it out of the question for our government to do some actual governing instead of this water-cooler gossipy he-said-she-said finger pointing?
I guess you have to take a bit of time every now and then and clean your office and throw out the trash, but I find the whole thing seriously frustrating.

Parliamentary Seasons

Harper SeasonI get a little giddy when a new session of parliament starts. Kind of like when the Leafs start playing again in September. In both cases, my attention wanes after a few weeks, as the same old problems come up. I, like most Canadians, am easily distracted by just about anything else, and that’s what the government is counting on.

Proroguing We Will Go…

Harper ProrogueTruth be told, prorogation happens fairly often, and it’s not just initiated by Conservative governments. It does seem somewhat suspicious though, that our Prime Minister tends to pull out the prorogue card to avoid whatever scandal happens to be going on. Kind of like the way gas prices jump up just before a long weekend.
