The Council of Canadians South Shore chapter in Nova Scotia notes, “200 concerned citizens filled the Lunenburg fire hall on Friday night to hear author and journalist Michael Harris speak about the subversion of Canada’s parliamentary democracy. The South Shore Chapter was gratified by the excellent attendance and the thoughtful questions and comments of participants. We thank the Lunenburg fire department for inspiring us with their motto: Deeds Not Words.”

Last week, South Shore Now had posted, “The South Shore Chapter of the Council of Canadians is presenting award-winning author and journalist Michael Harris at the Lunenburg fire hall, May 17, speaking on the current state of Canada’s parliamentary democracy. Mr. Harris is well-known to Atlantic Canadians for his in-depth investigations of major local issues… He is a respected columnist for iPolitics.ca. Mr. Harris is currently documenting the critical erosion of Canada’s parliamentary democracy for an upcoming book. What he is hearing from the country’s most senior parliamentary officers and those who are keeping a watchful eye on the PMO should be of great concern to us all. While Mr. Harris is a part-time resident of Lunenburg, this is a very rare opportunity to hear him speak and should not be missed. Who’s Minding the House: The Subversion of Canada’s Parliament begins at 7:30 p.m. and admission is free.”
