A modest Proposal 

Under Article V of the Letters Patent of the Governor General, The Governor  has the powers to "upon sufficient cause to remove from his office, or to suspend from the exercise of the same" there is sufficient cause to remove and suspend Stephen Harper. Under Article VI of the Letters Patent of the Governor General, there is a provision not only to dissolve, and prorogue Parliament but also to suspend or remove from office. The time has come to remove and suspend Harper, and to SUMMON Parliament and ask the opposition parties to form a minority government, and govern as Harper did as a quasi majority government and end Harper's autocracy.[ It would then be the Conservatives who would be afraid to cause a vote of non-confidence and trigger an election]

 In 2008, THE FORMER GOVERNOR GENERAL ERRED IN PERMITTING DISSOLUTION OF PARLIAMENT WHEN OUTSTANDING UNRESOLVED ACCUSATIONS AGAINST HARPER EXISTED

Prior to the calling of the 2008 election, the Conservative Party, under Stephen Harper, was being investigated by the Parliamentary Committee on Ethics, Access to Information and Privacy, for violation of the Elections Act, in the 2006 election. The Chief Electoral Officer appeared before the Committee and stated that the practice, which was described as an "in-and out" funding scheme, was in violation of the Elections Act. During the 2006 Election, the Conservatives appeared to be exceeding the spending limit at the Federal level. To circumvent this Federal limit, the Conservative administration transferred funds into 65 ridings where it was anticipated that the candidate would not arrive at the allotted riding spending limit. These funds were recorded in the candidates' income, returned to the Federal party to be spent at the national level, but the expenses were recorded not at the national level, but as a local expense which was contrary to the Election Act. It was the assigning of national expenses at the Federal level at the riding level that was in violation of the Act. When the Parliamentary Committee was investigating this practice, the candidates were going to be required to appear before the Parliamentary Committee. The Conservative Party administration, under the guidance of Stephen Harper, indicated to the candidates in 67 ridings that they did not have to appear before the Committee. When 27 subpoenas were issued, only three appeared before the Committee. 

While the Committee was attempting to fully address the inquiry, Stephen Harper stepped down and asked the Governor General to dissolve Parliament and call and election, which she did. 

An election should never have been called, while there was still an investigation into fraudulent practices in the previous election.

As a result of the election being called, the Parliamentary Committee was dissolved. 

The Governor General erred at this time. 

THE FORMER GOVERNOR GENERAL ERRED IN PROROGING PARLIAMENT

The Governor General, through permitting the prorogation of Parliament, set a dangerous precedent in allowing a Prime Minister when facing an imminent non-confidence vote, to be permitted to evade a vote that was destined to pass. 

She also failed to acknowledge that there was a credible coalition of opposition parties, representing over 60% of the Electorate that was willing to govern.permitted Stephen Harper and the Conservative party to evade a non-confidence vote,

 

THE FORMER GOVERNOR GENERAL ERRED AGAIN  IN PROROGING PARLIAMENT

 

She allowed yhe Harper government to evade accusations of complicity in torturing Afghani prisoners. by her permitting the Prorogation of Parliament. The Current governor General now must oppose prorogation which is beiing used again to stall challenges from opposition 

 

NOW THE CURRENT GOVERNOR GENERAL MUST RECOGNIZE THE PREVIOUS ERRORS of the former Governor General AND USE HIS POWERS UNDER ARTICLE V OF His LETTERS PATENT 

THERE IS SUFFICENT CAUSE TO REMOVE AND SUSPEND STEPHEN HARPER

Under Article V of the Letters Patent of the Governor General, there is the following provision: 

And We do further authorize and empower Our Governor General, so far as We lawfully may, upon sufficient cause to him appearing, to remove from his office, or to suspend from the exercise of the same, any person exercising any office within Canada, under or by virtue of any Commission or Warrant granted, or which may be granted, by Us in Our name or under Our authority.

There has been "sufficient cause" to remove Stephen Harper from office and suspend him from exercising his powers. Apart from the outstanding accusations of fraudulent election funding practices, there have been numerous cases where Stephen Harper,has almost irreversibly damage Canada's international reputation related to human rights, and the environment.


It is time for Governor General to remove,the Harper government, from office and to request the Opposition to form government  and t to overrturn 7 years of the Harper government's transgressions. Since 2006 when Harper government came to power, Canada has increasingly become an international pariah.
