11. That's why I call him the Pro Rogue
Edited on Fri Aug-06-10 03:24 PM by KamaAina
Bush Jr. Harper was facing a certain vote of no confidence in Parliament, which would have meant new elections. So he asked the Governor-General, the Queen's representative, for permission to "prorogue" (suspend) Parliament -- and she agreed! This gave Harper time to patch things up and cling to power.

Governor-General Michaelle Jean is a brilliant and lovely Haitian-Canadian. Pity she had to end up as the Great White North's answer to the Felonious Five. :(
