Those who doubt seem really, really angry about it
As of this writing, the Facebook group Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament has grown to 80,235 people.
That's nearly equivalent to the population of Sarnia, Ontario, or Nanaimo, British Columbia (according to tageo.com).
Media responses to the group however, have been mostly negative. They range from dismissive, to cynical to actually-kind-of-insulting.
If you are easily discouraged, I recommend not clicking the above links.
But I have to wonder: if this FB group is just BS, then why do you continue to write about it? If you take a look at the National Post's Full Comment section online, I see 8 different opinion pieces about the group published since January 5th (not including Chris Selley's Full Pundit).
I'm a member of the group, and in the same time frame, I've only written about it once.
Like the Bard said: "Methinks thou doth protest too much..."
Perhaps, all we've accomplished is eighty thousand people clicking a button. But for me, that's a damn good start.
So... what shall we accomplish next?
And, for those of you who are gluttons for punishment, here are the aforementioned NP articles:
