Rage, Frozen, others...

What is this non sense about shutting down Parliament in order for the Prime Min to keep power?

I just called a friend in Windsor. He says Canadians will bitch about it for a couple of days and then decide that they don't want to waste the money on another election--so they'll just keep him in power.

Harper(the Prime Minister) faces a vote of non confidence due to the proposed economic update.... He has a minority government, so if a bill like this does not get passed then it can lead to parliment being dissolved and an election.... We just had an election 9 weeks ago so the NDP and Liberals are planning to form a coalition with the support of the Bloc Quebecois which would mean that they would be the government..... Because that coalition would be a majority... So Harper is trying to slow things down....

In Canada if the minorities in Parliament can form a coalition of seats which is greater than that of the seats of the current government, the coaltion can cease power. The Liberal, NDP and Bloc Quebeqouis are trying to do that right now. The vast amount of Canadian opose this move. It is developing.

I guess it never got to a vote of non confidence, but if it did the coalition could have asked the Governor General to form the Government.

If the Coalition took power... I could definately see riots ensuing.

EDIT: I changed my mind. I highly doubt riots would ensue. But the new governemnt would get some stongly worded letters and they would certainly hear about it in sternly written newspaper editorials. Take THAT!

Hearing about the Canadian political system reminds me of High School student council.

Seems counterproductive.

Ya a minority government can be pretty unproductive too, but now there will be no new legislation until Jan.26.
