Today's poll question, do you think Canadian Parliament's Question Period should be televised? A Conservative MP is trying to increase the decorum in this facet of our government, and one of the best suggestions that I have heard on how to tone down the partisanship is taking out the television cameras. If you believe this is a problem, is there really any other solution? This last session of Parliament saw some of the most despicable rhetoric I have ever seen, with acts like Marlene Jennings accusing Helena Guergis of being a drug dealer. Since Parliamentarians cannot be prosecuted for what they say in elected chamber, it has led to many saying outrageous things just to get them on camera.
So what do you think? Should Question Period be scrapped altogether, should they take the cameras out, or is there another solution? Your feedback as always is encouraged.
