POSTED RESPONSE TO AN EDITORIAL IN TORONTO'S GLOBE AND MAIL
Agreed, but then what do we have a Governor General for?
Isn't her job to exercise sober and unbiased judgment in such matters?
This surely is the most dictatorial-leaning, one-man government we have experienced in modern times.
And it is that very government - i.e. Stephan Harper - which is responsible for the decline in debates, respect, and general behavior in Parliament.
She should never have granted this because the government had no legitimate reason for doing it.
And that is the second time she has seriously failed us, letting this ethically-threadbare government - i.e. Stephan Harper - escape the consequences of his failings.
Indeed, Harper had a very bad reason for this one, hiding from a genuine ethics scandal, the most important kind of ethics, those dealing with human life.
