Harper’s Stay of Execution

Well, well, well…Hell has apparently frozen over.

I heard about the decision from a friend who made sure she wasn’t within arm’s reach when she dropped the bomb- not that I would have done anything, of course. Why shoot the messenger?

It was one of those unbelievable things that probably shouldn’t happen- which meant that it was essentially a done deal. And it was.

To say I was apoplectic is an understatement. There was screeching and then it gets hazy. I blanked out momentarily as I gasped for air. My friend was having a bad day up until that point- yes it is my goal in life to provide comic relief when and where I can. I’m a giver.

In the last few days I have read some very interesting views on the whole situation. One of the most interesting is from former Governor General Ed Schreyer who was essentially counselling against allowing Parliament to be prorogued (am I using that right?). If Harper got a do-over for being an @ss the precedent is set- what is there to stop every other Prime Minister going forward from rolling the dice and asking the GG for a get-out-of-jail-free card?

One may argue that he only has until January 26th to come up with a plan…Enough time for their PR train to really start chugging. Polls show “overwhelming” support for the Conservatives on this issue.

Fools. I can only shake my head and cry a little.

I take small comfort in the fact that Fat Lady hasn’t sung yet and a lot can happen in eight weeks. I honestly don’t think I can handle another election so soon after the “illegal” election of six weeks past…

I may have to make good on my resolve to campaign on behalf of my party of choice- the only thing I can guarantee is that it will not be the Conservative party! Puh!

My great fear is a Conservative majority. He plays God now- can you just imagine what he would do if he actually had that power???

I am working on a back-up plan. If we go to another election and Hell freezes over (again)…I am moving to Ecuador.
