Will somebody with a press pass please ask Michael Ignatieff the following questions.
#1 Are you against prorogation or just against PM Harper proroguing?
#2 (if no) What is your opinion of the power, would you use it if you became PM, and under what circumstances? What do you think about PM Chretien using it 4 times and PM Trudeau using it 11?
#2 (if yes) Isn't being against a long standing, legal power more of an actual threat to the constitution and our system/traditions of government than using that power? Are there any other powers granted to the PM in our constitution that you are also against, and are you willing to open up the constitution to change them? (BTW if we are opening up the constitution why not do some long overdue senate reform at the same time =).
#3 With your statements on how divisive the coalition would have been to the country does that mean that you AGREE with the PM's decision to prorogue in December 2008, which killed that very same coalition that you claim would have ripped apart Canada?
There are plenty more obvious ones to ask (sorry, I guess they are not so obvious to our paid "impartial" media) but these few should do for starters.
Bonus question: Did you not say MANY times that the Liberal Party under your leadership would not resort to cheap personal attacks against PM Harper? So what is up with the latest Liberal ads?
Anyone from the MSM listening?
How about you Kady? After-all you have nothing else to do since committees are currently on the Christmas break.
(Yes, the Christmas break. The prorogation does not start for another 2 weeks you disingenuous MSM wienies.)
UPDATE: The media asked the question and guess what; Ignatieff would prorogue too. ( they did let him off the hook by not asking about the times Trudeau and Chretien prorogued, but you can't have everything I guess.)
The NDP has seen enough and knows when to cut their losses. They will not be joining the Liberals PR stunt on the 25th. "NDP insiders said that while they agree with the Liberals that Prime Minister Stephen Harper's decision to prorogue was a major mistake, they are leery about the Liberal strategy. They said they're not sure the hearings will accomplish much, and believe the protest could easily appear hyper-partisan and poorly organized."
