Two-thirds of Canadians disapprove of Harper’s plans to prorogue Parliament: poll

'When correctly used, as it is being this time, prorogation is a perfectly legitimate Parliamentary manoeuvre, but the Prime Minister has poisoned the chalice with his past misapplications of this tactic, and the public now has no patience with it,' says Forum Research president Lorne Bozinoff.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper recently noted that he would be seeking prorogation of Parliament and MPs and Senators will likely return in October, rather than the scheduled Sept. 16 return date.The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
