Second, This comment sounds a lot like sedition to me:
The Harper Conservatives could be within their rights to defy the governor-general if she asked the Liberal-NDP coalition to form a government in the new year, a constitutional lawyer warns.
Gerry Chipeur, the Alberta lawyer who crafted a proposal for the Canadian Alliance and Bloc Quebecois to work together in Parliament in 2000, said Gov.-Gen. Michaelle Jean would break constitutional convention were she to allow the coalition, supported by the Bloc Quebecois, to take power if they defeat the government's budget.
Chipeur's argument foreshadows a possibly drastic response from the Conservatives should they be turfed from power.
He suggests that Conservatives may not readily accept the governor-general's decision should she refuse the prime minister's request for an election.I am not a lawyer but I would be very interested to hear if this is grounds for disbarment. If so, are there any progressive lawyers, Albertan or otherwise, willing to take up the fight?Recommend this Post
