"This is simply cowardice" - regarding Harper proroguing parliament to avoid the tough questions on the Afghanistan detainee issue.

Prorogue is indefensible no matter who is selling it - Owen Sound Sun Times - Ontario, CA

Harper was taking serious fire on the detainee issue, and he was beginning to find it uncomfortable. The mess in Copenhagen didn't help. He didn't want to come back to more controversy. So he closed the doors, hoping the Olympics would take our minds off the workings of government.

He had an opportunity to rebut Richard Colvin's points about detainee handling. Instead he fled and sent Parliament home. He ran away, rather than face his critics in a stand-up, public debate.


Like I said, Harper is a coward.
