I am looking forward to the resumption of Parliament. The detainee inquiry committee will have a new, Conservative appointed committee chair. His job will no doubt be to shut down the inquiry. Harper has no choice, since his uncooperative behavior with the committee will lead to some sort of opposition response, possibly even a non confidence vote. Short of a non confidence vote, what other measures can the committee take against Harper and McKay? Can they force them both to testify and submit to cross examination? Can they subpoena documents in their original, unredacted form? If they can, Harper will have to kill the investigation just to save himself. This will produce a serious backlash. I am sure that the newly discovered Facebook mobilization tool will be used once again to organize opposition to the move, demonstrating greater public antipathy towards the Harper regime. Hopefully the opposition leaders will want to be seen as proactive this time, taking the lead rather than literally following the crowd.
No matter what happens, I think that the Conservatives are destined to lose seats in any election, no matter who is responsible for terminating the current Parliament. I don't know what they can do to make up for their current situation, other than buy time and hope that everyone forgets.
