Dion on the minority government..

This is from the CBC.

Harper has blamed opposition parties in recent days for paralyzing Parliament. But Dion said the minority government is working just fine.
"One thing is sure," said Dion. "The Parliament is working. The Parliament is not dysfunctional."


Dion is right. The parliament is not dysfunctional. It is the Liberal party that is dysfunctional. It is totally incapable of preventing Harper from getting his policies approved by parliament. However, Harper does not like those nasty committees and worries about what might be uncovered. He also worries about the worsening economic situation and no doubt thinks, perhaps rightly, that the Liberals will not do all that well under the leadership of Dion. Better an election now than being defeated later at a worse time. Duceppe did not have very kind words for Harper:

"Those ideological right wingers who are leaving behind economic devastation, and blood and destruction around the world. We here are confronted with the same gang," he said in French."Those ideological right wingers who are leaving behind economic devastation, and blood and destruction around the world. We here are confronted with the same gang," he said in French.

I hope Duceppe remembers those words if his party is called upon to vote against the government.
