and screws it up royally.
The upshot is that the Con$ want to cancel a couple of week-long 'back to the constituents' breaks during this upcoming session to 'make up' for time lost due to PMSH's prorogation of parliament.
Once again, we have a delightful example of how Harper doesn't get it. Those breaks exist so that MPs can get feedback from their constituencies. Of course, the HarperCon$ spend so much of their time creating their "10%ers" for other ridings that they barely are aware of their own constituencies. I haven't seen or heard of any sign of my own MP being in my riding for ages.
Harper doesn't understand the machinery of democracy, including the role of MPs to their constituencies. What Harper has proposed once again inhibits the ability of our parliament to operate on behalf of the people that it allegedly represents. Harper is going away from governing at the will of the people and like his Alberta counterparts is acting as if he has a right to govern.
