Canada is Closed; Citizens Feel Safer

Reminds me of the old, possibly apocryphal, story about the laconic border guard on the Canadian side. American tourist asks if they can get back across the border, even if it is after midnight. Border guard tells her, "Yes ma'am; Canada never closes."

Well, yes it does. If the Parliament were open, there would be a vote of no confidence. So....close the sucker. The Iraqis, and other people whom we tell so condescendingly that they should have "democracy"...they must be so PROUD right now.

Don't blame Harper, it's constitutional.

Personally I blame the Queen for our nation's troubles.

Tommy the Englishman learned a new word today, prorogue, as in The Conservatives had the Governor General prorogue Parliament.

Me so smart, my vocabulary increases by the day.
