Guess who joined the anti-prorogue FB group now?

I'm talking about the Facebook group protesting the "prorogue" (shutdown) of Canadian Parliament by Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Yeah, that FB group that has gone viral and is at 113,000 members and growing fast.

Among the many Conservatives who have thrown in behind democracy in Canada...

Arthur Kent. aka - The "Scud Stud" or Skyreporter.

Even though this guy ran as a PC in the '08 Alberta provincial election and lost against Liberal Dave Taylor...

Apparently he is nevertheless the Kent brother with integrity, not afraid to take a stand contrary to his big bro Peter, who is MP for Thornhill and a jr. minister in the Harper cabinet.

On FB the Scud Stud says: "No politician or political party is bigger than the House of Commons. Canadians financed the election of this parliament, and they have a right to get their money's worth."

Both Kent brothers were exceptional and world class broadcast journalists, who had high-profile careers in Canada and the U.S.

I want to thank Arthur Kent for his support on the Facebook group. Along with other Canadians, we need people like him to oppose the prorogation of Canada's parliament.

If you want a bigger audience, may I suggest you join the group Most are political blogs. However, some do focus on different themes such as the environment, law, feminism, regional politics, education, and other topics of interests. Most bloggers are either active or mild supporters of either the Liberal, NDP, and Green parties. Some are even former Progressive Conservative supporters.

Contact Scott Tribe if you will like to join.
