We are told by Stephen Harper that 4 by-elections presently well under way are to be terminated because Parliament is dysfunctional.
Who made Parliament dysfunctional?
Evidently this was a premeditated strategy of the Harper Government as codified in Harper’s 200 page manual that was obtained by Don Martin of the Calgary Herald in the spring of 2007.
This “Parliamentary Obstruction Document” was provided to all Parliamentary Committee ( therfore Conservative) Chairman. One of those Chairman, who evidently suffers from Bernier’s disorder, left his copy behind in a committee room. His hand written notes were scribbled all over it.
That document was picked up by a non-Conservative, who then provided it to Don Martin of the Calgary Herald.
I recently asked Don for a copy. Here’s what Don Martion said to me on August 18, 2008:
“Nah, most of it is just photocopied procedural paper anyway. The juicy stuff is a slide show given to the chairs that was only about 30 pages.”
Guess what? That answer is unacceptable. I want a copy. The voting public has a right to know. This document would do much to put Harper’s “dysfunction” argument into perspective,
Don Martin did undertake about ten days ago to check with his source whether I could also receive a copy of this document. I heard noting in response.
I would ask Don to inform his source of my offer:
I am prepared to pay $10,000 for the first bone fide copy of this Parliamentary Obstruction Manual that is made available to CAITI and accepted by CAITI for payment.
The offer is good until September 15, 2008, the day that our dysfunctional Parliament was set to resume sitting
