Here is what is going to happen now
Here’s the deal. Or at least my best guess at this point. (Isn’t constitutional guessing fun?!)
The Prime Minister will ask for a prorogation of Parliament tomorrow morning and the Governor General (to my dismay) will agree. She’ll agree because this is her best option – nobody wants the GG to disagree with a democratically elected Prime Minister.
They will prorogue for one week which will take us to the Holiday break, which is set to begin on December 13. I guess that’s not so bad; one week?
We’ll return on January 26 to… exactly the same situation we face now. But with cooler heads. But everyone will be just as angry. The budget will be presented on January 27 and it will be a confidence motion.
Why prorogue again?
