What Dr. Dawg said

While I'm not as critical about the Libs' proposal to deal with prorogation, this much strikes me as exactly right:
With the current groundswell of public concern about Canadian democracy, this is precisely the time when fundamental democratic reform as a whole should be up for review: the electoral system, the question of the Senate (elected or abolished), checks and balances to offset the entire range of the Prime Minister's considerable powers, and so on. Call it a democratic recalibration.
