I disagree with the Governor General's decision, but the person at fault here is not her: Stephen Harper should never have made this her call. It was Harper, not Michaelle Jean, who decided that he would try and prorogue rather than face a confidence vote. I don't blame Jean for choosing to defer to her PM, as almost every precedent suggested she should. Again, I disagree with it, but I disagree more with the whining I'm seeing on our end.
I believed that there was ample reason for the GG to not prorogue Parliament until the PM had demonstrated he had the confidence of the House of Commons. But my beliefs don't make it so. And neither do yours. Harper put Jean in a terrible position, and she made a "safe" decision, as was her right.
If you believe, as I do, that the GG's decision sets a bad precedent, surely it's the precedent that the Prime Minister has initiated. There's nothing about this that the GG wanted to have any part of.
So, Harper: still a jackass, whose jackassery puts other people in impossible positions, and now a coward to boot.
