Canada is not a representative democracy in any honest sense of the word. How could it be when the head of government acts like an autocrat and refuses to abide by Parliamentary directives—in this case, turning over documents on the torture of Afghans. Such (typical) conduct is a gross violation of the founding Canadian principle of responsible government, by which the government or Cabinet is responsible to the people’s elected representatives in the House of Commons. Harper has declared himself to be an outlaw, a subversive, a traitor—just the kind of overweening, obsequious stooge Israel wants as its governor in Ottawa.
