Harper’s hidden agenda

To the editor:

So this man, Stephen Harper (I can no longer call him Prime Minister) has once again aborted the democratic process of our Parliament by a second prorogation.

Two reasons stand out, one to close the enquiry into the allegations of torture to Afghan prisoners, the second so that we can all watch his performance, rather than the athletes, at the Vancouver Olympic Games.

He is no doubt hoping by these tactics to win gold, that is a majority in the next federal election.

I only hope that Canadians will remember his anti-democratic record rather than his Olympic record at that time.

Meanwhile four Canadian soldiers and a journalist are killed in Afghanistan.

Whether one believes in this war or not, I’m sure that the hearts of all of us go out to those bereaved, especially in the days following the Christmas and New Year’s season.
