RCMP Commissioner Slams Prorogation of Parliament

Interesting watching the RCMP Commissioner's news conference today.  Changes have been made to the use of tasers.  Basically, an officer must be "under threat" to use the taser...  I thought that was always the case?  You mean, in the past, cops were allowed to just "pop" someone with a taser for shits and giggles?

Anyway, the Commish stated VERY clearly that this RCMP decision was delayed by the lack of committees in Parliament - and directly due to the prorogue of Parliament by the PM.  This was in response to a reporter question basically asking, "what took so long"?  

Wonder what other VERY IMPORTANT tasks were held up by Harper's selfishness?  Maybe the ECONOMY???  Hundreds of thousands of Canadians LOST JOBS as Harper ran for cover.  

The people of Canada will not forget - and should not forget.

Thanks Steve!
