If you live in Canada, then you should know our federal government has prorogued parliament. Stephen Harper extended the Christmas Break for a period of two months for members of parliament. The reason being is Canada is hosting the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. Really?
Because the world comes to a stop when the Olympics are on! So, now we have no one charge of the second largest nation in the world. This can only end well.
My friend said to me it doesn’t affect me. Well FYI parliament is always backlogged with bills and etc prolonging a break doesn’t help this situation. Harper’s government was also to face the music for Afghan prisoner abuse and abuse of power.
But, you still might not care. But, what about airport security? Most people travel and after the attempted Christmas bombing airports started drastically changing protocols for security. And with no one to monitor or regulate them they can pretty much do whatever they wish.
The Star and other media outlets were going to do a report on this but; the crisis in Haiti diverted their focus. I hope we don’t forget that we are still without government.
