Blogging Tory "The Trusty Tory" is seriously yanked about, well:
I’m quite aware of the Constitution. Nowhere in the constitution does it allow separatist parties (you know, the whole oath to the Queen) to hold the balance of power.
Yeah ... trying to topple the governing party with the support of a bunch of fucking Canada-haters. What kind of total douche do you have to be to pull that kind of shit? Oh ...
We respectfully point out that the opposition parties, who together
constitute a majority in the House, have been in close consultation. We
believe that, should a request for dissolution arise this should give
you cause, as constitutional practice has determined, to consult the
opposition leaders and consider all of your options before exercising
your constitutional authority.
Your attention to this matter is appreciated.
Hon. Stephen Harper, P.C., M.P.

Gilles Duceppe, M.P.

Jack Layton, M.P.

Somehow, of course, that's different. It has to be.
