Dysfunctional Leadership

The Province
Published: Tuesday, August 19, 2008

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has threatened to call an election, whining "I don't want to govern over a dysfunctional government." OK, Harper should call an election and then explain why he could not run a respectable parliament.

We know the Liberals gave him a free legislative hand to do what he wanted, so we know they are not the problem.

The Tories produced a 200-page handbook for their own MPs, telling them how to obstruct, bully and otherwise make parliamentary committees, well, dysfunctional. His team has done exactly as ordered.

Why does Harper deserve a promotion to a majority government when he has failed to run a respectable minority government? Eugene Parks, Victoria
