House committees: should get the job done

The House of Commons is back, but for how long is anyone's guess. It's scheduled to sit until June 22 and it should really sit until that time but, as noted last week, there's always a tap dance around adjourning early and Parliament isn't exactly in a happy place right now. It's more like paralsyed, panicked, raucous, and rowdy. MPs on all sides, but mostly Conservatives, should drop the dilatory tactics in House of Commons committees and get on with the important Parliamentary work. As well, the governing Conservatives should quit blaming the Liberals and do the work at hand.
