with Brian Topp. Before anyone calls me a socialist, I am still a stalwart HM PM Stephen Harper, so that's not the issue. The issue is since trudeau the PMO has become far more powerful. The reserve powers of the Crown are essentially being used by the PMO. The Prime Minister has become too powerful. I am not completely sure how to fix this. I have heard suggestions, one of them being allowing caucus to pick the leader of the governing party and allow spills like in Oz(Baroness Thatcher was unseated by her own MPs). I am sure better constitutional minds have better suggestions.
So while I disagree with brian topp on virtually everything else, I do think he has a bit of a point here.
