enormous threat to the survival of authoritarian types like the sitting prime minister.
Passed into law, the Act would allow caucus to oust a prime minister by majority vote, triggering a leadership contest. If would allow caucus, again by a simply majority, to decide who would be allowed into caucus or expelled. It would scrap the provision that candidates needed the written endorsement of their party leader to run for office.
In other words, it would force Stephen Harper to open his coffin to the mid-day sun.
What will be interesting will be how the Liberal and New Democrat leadership react to Chong's bill. They too aspire to the throne.
