A Practical Problem with Sharon Smith's Appointment

Now many people have complained about how appointing mayor and amateur photography model Sharon Smith as government representative for Skeena-Bulkley Valley is terribly unconstitutional. I won't dwell on that, I have a far more practical concern. Given that Harper seems to concentrate all decision making in his office leaving his cabinet - let alone his MPs - out in the dark, one wonders how an unelected quasi-MP could possibly influence Harper.

Congratulations residents of Skeena Bulkley Valley, you now have someone to be unconstitutionally ignored from inside the government - not just a constitutionally elected member probably being ignored from the opposition benches (who will though at least have vote to bring down Harper's stalled government).

*But seriously, this shit stinks, Harper.
