Martin was defeated, 171 to 130. Another election.
Lucky dogs---I wish we didnt have a govt
It's just another road side attraction, really. The liberals will always have Ontario and Quebec, that's all they need to win, the rest of the country is split with enough libs to bolster the solid votes from here and Queerbec.
You not even going to party for a month or so? :shocked:
Canada's Government Toppled
Monday, November 28, 2005
I'm not sure who runs things when this happens, I guess the Governor General - we're a Costitutional Monarchy.
It was a coalition government, formed by the official opposition who also holds the most seats (majority government) that defeated Martin's government. The coalition that formed is so funny because it was made up of the Conservatives, New Democrats (super-ultra-left) and the Bloc Quebcois (leftist-separatists). Plus, Harper (leader of the Conservatives) is having confidence problems within his own party.
What an interesting development this is.....When was the last time this happened there?? Was this unexpected?
The last time was in 79, with a Conservative minority government. I can't say this is unexpected because the opposition parties have been threatening to form a coalition for some time now, they are using the ad scam scadal and a few other budgetary things most recently. The Liberals have already managed to esacape a no confidence vote once in last year. NDP is my riding and will remain so after the election.
Damn---who is everyone going to blame when something bad happens in Canada ??? :eek2:
