Democracy inaction

After writing the previous post Governor General Michaelle Jean brought down her decision. I am saddened to say that she agreed to a prorogation.

I can't write more now, but the Globe and Mail has coverage here.

Just one month ago today our neighbours to the south gave us a huge reason to have hope and belief in the future. And now this? Our own government has back-pedalled and is now hiding like an ostrich, in order to escape from the constitutional process involved with no-confidence. So, now we must wait until only 6 days after the US inauguration to recommence the parliamentary procedures and possible get the economic crisis on track. So how does the average person/family, or the small-business sector, or anyone else sleep over the Christmas season, knowing that the government is even too frightened to stand up and take charge!?!
