Prorogue and the Response


  1. Discontinue a session of (a legislative assembly) without dissolving it.
  2. (of such an assembly) Be discontinued in this way.
adjourn – postpone – defer – delay

So the federal government  has decided to prorogue Parliment again. Basically cancelling debate and bills before the House.

Rightfully people are upset and voicing concern.
