In the past years, when new legislation is proposed or implemented in Canada, it is brought forward by the Harper government. Later when we find the legislation to be flawed or not in our best interest it is “the Conservative government in Ottawa.” Harper changed the census form and now the Conservative government takes the blame. Does Harper really think that our memories are so short?
The “Harper government” wants to reform the Senate. Perhaps the “Conservative government” should get Harper to read Canadian history, namely the Meech Lake and Charlottetown Accords.
Harper and Mulroney have appointed senators and judges at will and without the prescribed criteria set forth in the Constitution. They don’t get the picture. The constitution defines how we conduct our selves.
We can’t have one doing what ever please themselves.
