In view of the fact that the Liberals will be registering their opposition to Stephen Harper’s proroguing of Parliament, by attending to work in Ottawa on January 25, 2010 as a sign of protest, and in view of the fact that they will have more time on their hands than usual, I called John McCallum and left him a voice mail indicating that I would like to make productive use of their free time by coming to Ottawa in order to meet with the Liberal caucus.
The purpose of said meeting would be to acquaint all the members of the Liberal caucus with the full extent of the income trust issue so that rather than having only superficial knowledge of this issue like the vast majority of Canadians, they can acquire a more in-depth knowledge that would permit them to understand why the CBC’s “Ask the PM a Question” news segment is inundated with question pertaining to income trusts and Stephen Harper’s tax leakage.
Democracy is a continuum, and not a patch work quilt. We can’t have democracy working in some places but ignored in others. Democratic due process is no more or less important for the treatment we give Afghan detainees tha it is for the treatment that we giver seniors in this country, whose nest eggs were either raided fairly or unfairly as result of Stephen Harper and Jack Layton’s income trust.
I would be happy to meet with members of the NDP’s caucus or the Bloc at a place and time of their convenience during the period of Harper’s prorogation of Parliament.
Whether I hear back from John McCallum with a proposed time and date for such a proposed meeting will determine whether he and the Liberal Party share in this philosophy. My number is 647 505-2224
