Rick Mercer Says it Much Better Than I


There have been some amazing pieces written in newspapers across Canada about the prorogation of Parliament in the last week or so.

They all say it so much better that I.

I particularly liked what Rick Mercer has to share with us. In part he says:

It is too bad that prorogation isn't something that our soldiers had in their arsenal. When faced with the order to head out on a foot patrol in the Panjwai district of southern Afghanistan, to risk their lives to bring democracy to that place, wouldn't it be nice if they could simply prorogue and roll over and go back to sleep? Soldiers don't get that luxury. That is afforded only to the people who ultimately order them to walk down those dangerous dusty roads in the first place.
