Prorogue Permission Granted As Governor General Saves Stephen Harper's Conservatives - For Now - 2008-12-04
They are words most Canadians likely never thought they would hear a mere 7 weeks after the Conservatives earned another minority government at the polls. But on Thursday, a nation heard the message loud and clear – Parliament was being suspended.
It's a daunting reality that has caused great anxiety across the country.
An IPSOS poll released following the decision discovered that 72% of Canadians are truly scared for the future of our home and native land. The poll also revealed that most Canadians (68%) agreed with Governor General Michaelle Jean's decision to grant Prime Minister Stephen Harper permission to prorogue Parliament.
