More importantly, who will stand up for responsible government and against the unmandated, largely unconstitutional, Harper agenda to “change how his country is governed” both in the workings of our institutions and to make Canada more “conservative” (ie neoconservative) as the Reform Party dominated CPC continues to plot arrogantly?

Three leaderless opposition parties, and the majority in the Senate which is supposed to hold the prime minister and cabinet government accountable in Harper’s pocket. This is a sad time for democracy in Canada.
