Don Newman is not impressed

The CBC’s senior parliamentary editor decides to single-handedly reform Parliament. 

He also points out the lingering concern of last month’s events at Rideau Hall.

The seminal event leading to the suspension of Parliament was a two-hour, closed-door conversation between Governor General Michaëlle Jean, the grantor of the request, and Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the requester.

Only these two individuals and perhaps a couple of close advisers know exactly what was said or what deals might have been brokered in the course of this conversation. In a democratic country in the 21st century, you have to ask: is this good enough?
