The federal Liberals’ instincts may not be anti-democratic so much as they are dangerously naive. They take democracy and freedom for granted thinking they can suspend Parliament in the middle of a national crisis and our representative democracy will survive, no problem. Of course, being Liberals, there is also a conceit behind their move to suspend the House of Commons one month early and keep it shuttered until at least September: They are firmly convinced that, so long as they are in charge and making all the decisions with their elevated social consciences and their superior intellects, nothing can go wrong.
