Enemies lists and members bills 

The Harper Cons are warning new and shuffled Cabinet ministers about who their friends and enemies are:
On the “Transition Binder Check List” are 10 items, such as: “What to expect soon” and “Who to appoint,” as well as “Who to engage or avoid: friend and enemy stakeholders” and “What to avoid: pet bureaucratic projects.”
Item No. 6 on the list is “Who to avoid: bureaucrats that can’t take no (or yes) for an answer,” but Furtado said in a later email that day — also obtained by the Star — that this list was “no longer required.”
Another news story adds the tidbit that new ministers are also being briefed about "private members bills" -- I wonder if this lends credence to the assertion that the Harper Cons are purposefully using such bills as an easier way to implement government policies without all that bother of committee reviews and hearings?
