Harper’s supporters are now blackmailing the Governor General saying she better reject the coalition or else.

h/t The regina mom blog. Here’s a National Post report quoted on that blog.

Sputtering with rage in the Post, Michael Bliss goes so far as to demand that the Governor-General reject any no-confidence vote supported by the Bloc — and if she doesn’t, it amounts to “an abuse of vice-regal power” that raises “fundamental questions about Ms. Jean’s loyalty to the Constitution and to Canada”.

Here’s a Parliament Democracy for Dummy to counter Harper’s spin that this is undemocratic.

Each member of parliament were voted by Canadian voters. If the majority of elected MP voted non-confidence on the government, the government falls. That’s democracy at work.
