'Cause it is part of routine Parliamentary procedure... that is until the era of Facebook decided it was an affront to democracy.

Don't forget Harper pretty much said the same thing about it being an affront to democracy. You know before he was elected PM

Right, but back then the general public didn't care--as they will probably ignore McGuinty.

Of course he did, he was the Opposition at the time.

McGuinty is a doofus. What did we expect?

I bet Hudak would -like- to say something about it though...

Dalton is correct this time

Hudak will make a bit of noise for the media, but not much. Until the legislature is prorogued the two PC members that staged the anti-HST sit in are not allowed to sit in the legislature, they are banned until a new session.

Dalton does have a legitimate reason to start with a new thrown speech. The economy and the government's priorities have changed significantly since the last throne speech, there has been significant movement in cabinet and there will be new members in the legislature due to by-elections.

As much as I dislike Dalton and the spend at all cost Liberals, he is very right in doing this at this time. And unlike Harper, this will be a very short time off.
