Update from Canada

Michaelle Jean, the governor-general of Canada, has prorogued Parliament. The plain English translation is that the current session comes to an end, and Parliament will not meet again until late January 2009.

That action postpones the opposition parties' opportunity to make a no-confidence vote against the minority Conservative government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

This soap opera, "As the Maple Leaf Turns", will now extend its run for several more weeks.
