Posted by Christian  |  at  9.1.10

That's some top notch accountability right there! According to the Winnipeg Free Press:

Average length of parliamentary sessions, by prime minister

  • Pierre Trudeau 511 days
  • Brian Mulroney 618 days
  • Jean Chr├ętien 484 days
  • Paul Martin* 421 days
  • Stephen Harper 303 days

Average number of sitting days per session, by prime minister

  • Pierre Trudeau 171 days
  • Brian Mulroney 215 days
  • Jean Chr├ętien 176 days
  • Paul Martin* 159 days
  • Stephen Harper 108 days

* Martin's one session ended in November 2005 when his government was defeated in a confidence vote.

Also, the Facebook group, Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament had registered 123,300, members at the time of my posting.
