Have the Cons lies about the nature of Canadian
democracy damaged our democracy ? Is the Prime Minister's willingness to defend the Tories right to rule without the confidence of the House as if he was a President and not a PM - as if he actually won a majority of Canadian votes instead of a minority, as if he won the majority of seats and not a minority - has his attack on the very nature of parliamentary democracy through his misinformation campaign done irreparable harm to the Canadian system ? Clearly many Canadians think we are a republic, that a Prime Minister is just another name for President.
