Prorogation miscellany and a question regarding the Long Parliament precedent

I can take a punch."   — Harper

Apparently, he was referring to the liquid that comes in a bowl around this time of year.  When it comes to honest criticism of his government he runs and hides.  He doesn't even have the courage to face the GG in person.

And as far as slighting the institutions of our government, he gets a twofer with this travesty.  Ignoring the primary forum of the Nation's business is bad enough.  But not even giving the Queen's representative the courtesy of a visit.  Very Harperesque.

If the Opposition MPs showed up for work on the 25, would they be able to nominate surrogates for those that don't?  Would the citizens (such as me) who suffer the indignity of living in Calgary South-West and are thereby, represented by the Coward-in Chief,  be able to represent a Canadian to represent them?  Probably not but it might weaken the resolve of some Con MPs.
