Parliament is prorogued.
The government will fall.
The January 27th budget will be the occasion. Parliament has no confidence in this governement. A change of ministry without an election is valid and the issue is sufficient to allow it.
But the session is over.
One man rule will continue. Election 2009 is underway.
Harper's disdain for parliament and democracy is the ballot question. Democracy and the economy will be the issues. Firing Flaherty may seem a way out for the neo Con minority. But Harper's job is on the line.
That Harper does not have a mandate to act as a majority and, given his negative campaign, perhaps not a mandate at all is to the point. One man rule is not democracy.
Figure out where you want to put your signs.
