74. Yes, I know, I live in Canada. Harper doesn't enjoy minority government that much.
He'd much rather have a majority so that he can fuck up Canada completely. Harper is Republican Lite. He is on record as having been ashamed of Canada for not getting involved in the Iraq misadventure.

He has not dismissed Parliament until further notice, though. He "persuaded" the Governor General to prorogue Parliament until 3 March. Though he would not admit it, the reason he did that was so that his government wouldn't have to face the commission (now dissolved) investigating whether the government had ordered prisoners of war turned over to Afghan authorities, where they were subsequently tortured. If they knew these people would be tortured and still turned them over, that would constitute a war crime.

He has to go. Thank goodness his proroguing Parliament has led to Conservative free-fall in the polls.
