The Constitution - EEEEK!!!

"Prime Minister Stephen Harper is willing to re-enter debate over the Constitution in order to address concerns across the country, he told CBC News as legislators prepare for Parliament to resume Monday."

Link to CBC Story

Why would Harper think about opening the Pandora's box of the constitution? We all know that Harper has a "transformative agenda" for Canada - to make it more like the U.S. - but surely even his blind right-wing ideological devotion would allow him to be smart enough to remember what constitutional debates have done to every Prime Minister who has gone there.

The vast majority of people who voted for Harper are old enough to still feel pain when they hear the words "constitutional debate". Harper is going somewhere he shouldn't. The people of Canada don't want any constitutional debates. If he goes there it could loom large in a long list of miscalculations.

When anything legislated is not right, there should be no problems in revisiting and rectifying any abstract or outdated clauses to reflect todays societal changes. I don't know of anyones constitution that is the same as originally penned.

The last constitutional changes was about 10 years ago introduced by Chretien. Does anyone remember what that was about and the results?

He's setting it up as an excuse for not fufilling his promises. if that stuff requires constitutional change, then needless to say, when he doesn't follow, he can claim it required the constitutional cange that he couldn't accomodate with a minority government...
