Cornwall ON- It’s showtime Canada! The Harper Government was toppled from its perch today but a motion of non-confidence from the Liberal party that was supported by the other members of the opposition.
“A government that breaks the rules and conceals the facts from the Canadian people does not deserve to remain in office,” Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff
This should be a very interesting election in that most of the leaders will not survive it. If Mr. Harper does not win a majority his chance of retaining power appear slim as the message would be that Canadians do not trust him to govern a majority.
From Keith Beardsley our View From the Hill Columnist:
I just thought it was interesting to see the maneuvering going on on the opposition side to avoid answering the question about will they form a coalition.
The wild cards remain to be seen and the early poll numbers are suggesting the possibility that we could end up right where we are with another Harper minority.
The election campaigns formally should be starting Monday.
