As Stephen Harper suspends Parliament to save his own ass for the Christmas shopping season, he intends to fill the stocking of 18 lucky Conservative drones like-minded pols with Senate appointments. (Perfect for the budget-conscious guy with a long list of “friends”!) This from the guy that promised Senate reform through elections. Chaulk another broken promise up to Hair Helmet, alongside fixed election dates and, um, accountability.
So, my Liberal friends, are we going to curb this guy January 27, or are we going to pull some back-room time-buying measure to guarantee The Party more time to get its fundraising back in order?
