CP : “The Liberal motion, which has the approval of the NDP and Bloc Quebecois, reads:
‘In light of the government’s failure to recognize the seriousness of Canada’s economic situation and its failure in particular to present any credible plan to stimulate the Canadian economy and to help workers and businesses in hard-pressed sectors such as manufacturing, the automotive industry and forestry, this House has lost confidence in this government and is of the opinion that a viable alternative government can be formed within the present House of Commons.’
“A source says the opposition parties have agreed that Liberal Leader Stephane Dion would lead the government for the next few months.
“A combative Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said Friday the government won’t back down on a single measure, despite the opposition threats.
“‘We’re staying on track,’ Flaherty said in Toronto. ‘This is the financial plan of the government of Canada. This is a matter of confidence.'”
My god, Jim, I think you’ve finally got it!
Okay, everybody get that?
Steve says the opposition wants to install Dion and a coalition government using the support of a party that wants to destroy Canada when he got the mandate, he got it, I tell you, with his 37% of the vote.
Bottom line — To avoid the non-con vote, Steve’s going to postpone ways and means and opposition day till December 8th.
Good. Will give the coalition time to work on their 63% mandate.
