IRRESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT

Liberals ought to be careful of this attitude.

If the unelected upper house continually and regularly defeats legislation that has gained the confidence of the Commons, that is not sober second thought, it is a threat to responsible government. We would be revisiting the days of the Family Compact outright.

This would be a much more stinging rebuke if Canadians cared at all about pre-confederation history.
