Contributor says federal politicians act like children and need soothers

So let me see if I have this straight now: Harper will not let Dion, Layton, and Duceppe play in his sandbox, because Harper wants to play with his toys (ram his legislation through Parliament).

Dear Editor;

So let me see if I have this straight now: Harper will not let Dion, Layton, and Duceppe play in his sandbox, because Harper wants to play with his toys (ram his legislation through Parliament).

Dion, Duceppe, and Layton would like to play in Harper’s sandbox, but not when Harper is going to make all the rules.

So Harper has a childish temper tantrum, and calls an election. The end result being basically the same as we had before.

Instead of all you little children in Ottawa having temper tantrums that are costing us hundreds of millions of dollars, why don’t you start acting like adults, and learn to play together?!

Or perhaps we should make you all stand in the corner?

In this time of economic crisis, buying a pack of soothers and sending them to Ottawa would be a wise investment.
