Canadian Government Gets Ugly

I was wrong about when we'd be going back to vote. It won't be a vote during the holidays, but we will be heading back to the polls before too long. Probably late January, early February.

Paul Martin has lost the support of the Jack Layton's NDP, the Bloc Quebecoise, and now the Tory government has filed it's no confidence vote, which will effectively dissolve the liberal government before the end of its shift.

We haven't even had the end results of Gomery Inquiry, but already Canadians are tired of waiting. We're pretty sure that there's a reason to blame the government, even though it wasn't this government, for millions of dollars of missing taxpayer money. Paul Martin was the finance minister during Jean Chretiens government, which was in power when they used the money to sponsor the Liberal party during the tumultous near-death experience of our country as we know it, when Quebec was close to separating.

Paul Martin wants an apology from Tory leader Stephen Harper for his defamatory remarks. He who has made the scandal a large part of his push for his own campaign. He says Paul has it backwards: Canadians deserve an apology from Paul Martin.

barbarafromcalifornia -yeah, the more scandal we get in politics, the more interesting they seem. Yet, we still can't compete with the controversiality of your President.

Mitzzee -OH Bono. That's hilarious! I didn't know that. Belinda Stronach used a U2 song for her campaign but Paul Martin is a hard core Tragically Hip fan. I would have loved to see his nervous face. I agree Jason and I would make a stronger coalition.
