The Liberal Party of Canada should send the Governor-General a bouquet of roses.
Her decision today to prorogue Parliament , after all, saved the Liberals from making the biggest mistake in their history.
As I noted a few days ago, it would have been a political disaster for the Liberals to join forces with the separatists and socialists so they could topple the Tories.
Constitutional or not, I said Canadians would not warm up to the idea of a unelected government.
And now the polls are showing I was right. Ipsos Reid reports that 62% of Canadians are angry with the Coalition for trying to take power from the Conservatives.
Luckily the Liberals now have the chance to pull back from the abyss, which they will.
I wonder if the NDP and Bloc will still remain bosom buddies?
