Reduce PM's Powers
The NDP proposed today to reduce the PM's powers to avoid an anti-democratic prorogation. Parliament would be able to be prorogued only if the House majority voted for it. A great idea. This will stop future Prime Ministers from going election crazy or prorogue crazy. The power of a PM to call an election should also be reduced. The Prime Minister must have a valid reason; not a random excuse like the election of 2008. The Liberals haven't responded on this platform yet. I hope that they will follow the lead of the NDP and also reduce the anti-democratic powers of the PM.
