which you're getting! Harper Conservatives prorogued to avoid a confidence vote - PM Trudeau/Liberals prorogued to reset the government's policy and legislative agenda... the prior 'Throne Speech and related policy', of course, had no mention/reference to COVID-19. And as I said, most pointedly, this perogy forces a confidence vote - so let's just wait and see which parties call for an election! Lets just see!

Yup, but it seems mighty convenient that this prorogue comes just when a scandal involving the PM is being investigated.   A week or two delay to get through that might have been better optics, and perhaps even shown him not to be at any fault. 

On the plus side, they did release a bumch of documents just begore heading out.

I suspect JT would not mind an election right now, as his approval rating is relatively high and he currently is a few points ahead of Conservstives.  Returning in a month with a plausible plan to address social supports and the environment might be enough to get him another majority.

Or not; a lot of people are pretty disillusioned with JT so he may still struggle to get reelected if the Conservative candidate can put together a platform that addresses people's concerns around pandemics, finances and the environment

It'll be interesting.
