My letter to Michaëlle

gg-splash_05The lovely lady holding the reins of Canada in her anachronistic hands is “Michaëlle Jean” <info@gg.ca>

Your Excellency,

It is unfortunate that parliament’s political gamesmanship has made you solely responsible for the country’s governance. That’s not what a democracy should be about, and it reflects badly on all our MPs, and particularly on the Conservative governing party.

With respect, I believe you made the wrong decision in allowing Mr. Harper to prorogue parliament in this time of worldwide economic and environmental crisis. There is a willing majority of elected MPs ready to take power, which represents a strong majority of voters in the last (somewhat frivolous) election.

Mr. Harper is apparently more concerned with brokering and increasing his own power than in properly governing the country. Your agreement to suspend parliament is only enabling him in his counterproductive quest. If you will not reverse your decision, please urge Mr. Harper and his cohorts in the strongest terms to work with all other parties to create acceptable governance.

Respectfully,

Greg Blanchette, Tofino, BC
