Monday's Musings

Harper is complaining that he needs a strong majority because the opposition parties have not been cooperating with his agenda. He sees that as somewhat unfair.

Let's think about it. The opposition parties represent about 60% of Canadian voters. Harper's Government represents about 40%. Does it seem unfair that the opposition want a few things to go their way?

The beauty of minority governments is that to work, they depend on diplomacy and cooperation. Political parties have to work together to make it successful. Some of the most progressive legislation in Canada has been enacted during minority governments. Unfortunately cooperation is not Stevie's long suit. The problem with the current government is that Harper wants to rule as if he has a majority.

I personally don't think Canadians are dumb enough to give him one. Please don't prove me wrong.
