I think some folks are missing the point here...we already DID have an election. According to the current parliamentary rules, we elected MPs, not parties or leaders. Once the house is in place it's up to those same MPs we voted for to select a Prime Minister. This is what our MPs are doing. We may not like it but those are the rules as of today and nobody is breaking them. An election today wouldn't solve much, it would just break our country further apart. Be careful what you wish for.

As for prorororoguing (hate that word...), most of the 'expert' opinion seems to be that GG will give Harper his wish. So we'll have 2 months of bickering and no government. And we're paying these people to carry on like this...(I wish I could ask my boss to prorogue my job for 2 months and then spend the whole time complaining!)

I watched the At Issue folks on CBC yesterday. Interesting the hear that the Coalition is already showing cracks. It looks like whichever way this swings we're going to have another election soon enough.

What a mess.
