Much has been written about the Proroguing of Parliament, so I am going to keep this rant short!
I am getting so sick of hearing about these liberal hipsters creating an false issue, but it just goes to show that they are so out of touch with everyday Canadians. Over the past month, these "engaged" citizens have arranged Prorogue Protests all over the country, often with a few thousand ( or dozens in Alberta) supporters showing up. ( I think they had free hot chocolate, but that has not been confirmed.) To me, this is just not an "issue", so I hope that they keep wasting their organizational resources and volunteer moral. Perhaps it is just the trap that Ignatieff needs to get his ego smoking again!
I see that there is a large Facebook Group created by a university student. If anyone is interested, the link is here at Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament and with over 233,000 members ( most of whom are not old enough to be able to spell P-A-R-L-I-A-M-E-N-T, let alone Prorogue.) you may feel this is quite impressive at first glance. But friends, don't be fooled!
You know who else has a real big Facebook following?
The Banana's in Pajama's! Take a look at the link....they have 610,000 followers. ( this is 100X the number of Facebook follows that the Liberal Party of Canada has...ouch!)
It just shows you how powerful these Facebook sites really are. Go ahead Iggy....run with it all you want.
