Can Harper prorogue the Parliament or not?
Please answer yes or no.
I have heard both answers, in multiple iterations, several times today. On the one hand, you hear a number of experts say that the GG can't refuse the PM on this kind of matter.
On the other, you've got people saying that the GG can do what she feels if it means Canada has a functioning government. Mike Duffy raised the issue of the government running out of money unless the Parliament votes on new money bills soon.
So, either Harper can or cannot run out the clock. It would be nice to have this clarified soon. Thanks.
