Churchill Society on Parliament and Prorogue

The Churchill Society for Parliamentary Democracy, often teetering on the brink of being too Anglophile for my taste, comes on home to offers a forum next Monday in Toronto where some promising speakers will discuss the post-prorogue state of parliament and such. Details here.

Lawrence Martin in the Globe this morning offers the standard nostrums about reining in prime ministerial powers. He still seems to imagine that party strategists, the principal beneficiaries of such powers, might offer a solution. Fat chance. Earlier, Adam Radwanski was regurgitating the "every journalist loves a fascist" approach, condemning Toronto MP Gerard Kennedy's efforts to represent his constituents as troublemaking, treason, and disloyalty, since he's not actually in some leader's pocket.
