Harper is at it Again!
I felt compelled to write our esteemed Prime Minister again lately after he once again prorogued Parliament.
I don't agree with your decision to prorogue. It is being used for crass political expediency. It serves ONLY the interests of the Conservative Party. It does NOT serve the interests of Canada.
Perhaps you don't care about the Afghan prisoner detainee issue. I do. As one concerned Canadian I expect answers on this matter. Don't patronize those of us who are concerned by saying that it is not "on our radar." It most certainly is.
Although I obviously doubt you ever see these emails personally, I do want to let you know that I was the placard waving protester standing outside your residence yesterday afternoon at about 4:45 PM when you returned to 24 Sussex from your interview with Peter Mansbridge. I shall be back again later today. I am one of more than 66,600 (and growing at a rate of more than 1,000 per hour) Canadians who have signed up to a Facebook page called Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament. You may want to check it out. There are a growing number of people saying some not very nice things about how you run this country and practice politics in general.
I will be on Parliament Hill on January 23 to register my opposition to you. I shall be on Parliament Hill on January 25 to take attendance of MPs to see who shows up for work. I expect you to be one of them.
Remember that you are, ultimately, accountable to us. We pay your salary. We are watching what you do, and how you do it, and intend to hold you to account on election day, whenever that is.
