Tieleman on Power & Politics - CBC TV News Network - between 3:30 & 4 p.m. on proroguing Parliament - the online reaction

I will be on CBC News Network's Power & Politics with host Evan Solomon and Kady O'Malley this afternoon - Friday - between 3:30 and 4 p.m. - tune in to hear about proroguing Parliament and online reaction, including the rapidly growing Facebook page Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament, which is currently at over 108,000 members!

I suggest the Tory MP's pay should be prorogued.

The Tories keep saying that having the House in session during the 2010 Games will possibly detract from the both.

And while all other Canadians are working during the Games - and choosing to watch or not watch the Games - apparently the Tories wouldn't be able to do both!

Just as I thought: the Tories can't walk and chew gum at the same time.

Harper says the Canadians don't bother that the house was shut down but the polls say otherwise.

This little bit of Parliamentry fraud is nothing new and will happen again and again.

The real question is what are the citzen's of Canada going to do about it?

Do you think Harper, Iggy or Layton actually care about you the citizen?
ANSWER . . . NO!
The only they care about outside of their personal bank and expense accounts are their party donators.
You the citizen aren't worth a bucket of warm spit.

But don't feel too much like a victim, since you elected them in your time off from BEER, BIBLES and HOCKEY.

I know the politicians can have perogies in the parliament dining room menu,and leave it open till it reopens in march!Do all the staffers receive their pay throughout this closing jeepers! I wish I could just prorogue my job and receive my pay and benefits,you see if I don't work everything gets cut off,maybe we should prorogue all pay including perks,I think their full pay package are in full effect even tho they aren't,even when they work they do more damage than when they don't maybe we should outsource our India or the Philippines? some place where it doesn't cost us so much?
