Proroguing and New Ideas

"While I think there is some short term political gain talking about proroguing, it is also the kind of gain that can come back and haunt you if you ever get power and do it.  Plus, the issues goes away as soon as Parliament comes back into session (Emphasis mine).  In politics there is always a long game and a short game and right now I don’t see any of them playing anything longer then a week from today.  That is frustrating to all Canadians and I can’t help but wonder if the focus on the short term mechanisms of a minority government has stalled the renewal efforts of the Liberal Party and has sapped both parties of energy and new ideas. "

~ Jordon Cooper from "Prorogue" (which is worth a read in it's entirety)
