Don't get me wrong. I like Michael Chong. And I like this idea - whether it's truly true or not. But here's the problem: Nothing like that is ever going to work unless and until MPs decide to, like we say where I'm from, prendre leur courage à deux mains and dare to stand up to the PM/PMO when it matters. I want more independent-minded MPs. I want the rules to make it easier for them to do their jobs as independently as possible. But the rules won't change by themselves. So go ahead, MPs, find your courage and show us what you've got.
