Quote:
Premier Dalton McGuinty will prorogue the Ontario legislature briefly, although the break isn't expected to start until after next week.

McGuinty said Tuesday he will start a new legislative session some time after the Vancouver Olympics with a speech from throne.


Quote:
There had been speculation that McGuinty was considering proroguing the legislative session in order to allow ministers who were given new portfolios in a cabinet shuffle last month more time to get up to speed on their files.

I don't disagree with the reason behind the prorogue of Parliament, I do however find it interesting that the CBC has provided a built in justification for the action.

liberal prorogation = good prorogation

conservative prorogation = bad prorogation


that about sums things up i think as to how the media is concerned on this issue .

It's legal, let him do it! But of course, the PCs will whine... I hate Canadian Opposition parties, they all oppose for the sake of opposing about 90% of the time. Then the stuff that needs to be opposed gets almost no coverage.

BTW, I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE FEDERAL LIBS TO TOUCH THIS :P :D

Don't worry, no one is whining. The PCs are in on this too--every party is. Apparently they just sped up legislation because it was that time of year for prorogation. I heard that Ontario prorogues every other year too. Harris did it, Rae did it. I don't know why they do it so often...maybe they want an extra few weeks off or something.

i don't actually think the pc's are against this is proroging was one of the few ways Randy Hillier and Bill Murdoch can get back into the legislature after being kicked out last year over the hst debates .

but its funny how the media is barely talking about this , its like its not even happening but when harper prorogued somehow he was a dictator . its also interesting that dalton is not following any of the rules suggested by ignatieff and will not be holding a vote in the legislature of this prorogation . anyways it be alot harder for the federal liberals to use this against us now during an election as the 2 liberal parties are seen as being linked and related .

Because there is not much to discuss in provincial legislatures, as compared to the Federal parliament.

HST, The 2010 Ontario Budget, Payroll Tax,
I can think of a few more.

However, I don't see anyone actually discussing it when when Parliament is sitting.

As for Federal Parliament;
They can take another month, if it means I will get exempted from Buy America moving forward.
