What would the coalition have amounted to if Parliament hadn’t been suspended today? According to a report in Embassy, a Canadian foreign policy newsweekly, the coalition would have had an internationalist and multilateral vision; emphasizing human rights. For instance:
“It seems the free trade agreement with Colombia, signed by Mr. Harper last week, could also be dumped in pretty short order. Both the Liberals and NDP have expressed concern over the human rights situation in the country.”
But, instead, we have a prorogued Parliament and a freeze on legislative initiatives until the end of January.
