Libby outraged by the Conservatives’ move to shut down Parliament

Opposition MPs say they will spend a major portion of the parliamentary prorogation period in Ottawa, with or without the governing Conservatives. Ralph Goodale, the Liberal House Leader, said in a telephone interview from Regina on Wednesday that Liberal politicians will be found in their Ottawa offices through much of February. Libby Davies, the House Leader for the New Democrats, said the members of her caucus art outraged by the prorogation, “how arrogant it is, and how [Mr. Harper is] trying to get off the hook in terms of what’s happening with the detainee issue and the war in Afghanistan.”
