Maybe not so much of a shrug
Almost 15,000 people are now signed up on the Facebook group: Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament. That's maybe not the apathy we expected to greet the decision to keep Parliament shut until March 3. We here in the Ottawa bureau (feeling a bit like the Maytag repair people) would be keen to know of any other plans -- by MPs or the general public -- to oppose the prorogation.
** Update *** More than 1,500 more people have added their names to the Facebook group today (as of 3 p.m.ish) and organizing meetings for rallies in Ottawa and Toronto are being held this Friday night.
