And just like that, a little announcement of prorogation has caused last weekend’s biggest news story to all but disappear. congratulations to Harper to hanging onto power for another two months and “sucks to be us” to the rest of Canada as now have no government sitting in the next two months. Effectively this means that we had no helpful economic stimuli announced by the government before Christmas and we will not be seeing anything for two whole months now until the House sits again at the end of January/beginning of February. *Sigh.* Time to check on my investment portfolio.
