Opposition says it will support Liberals’ non-confidence motion

Friday vote sets stage for May 2 election


 

The Liberals have announced they will bring forward a non-confidence motion against the Conservative government on Friday which both the Bloc Québécois and the NDP plan to support. The move sets the stage for what Prime Minister Stephen Harper has already characterized as an “unnecessary” election. In a statement released Wednesday morning, Harper lamented that opposition parties “didn’t take the time to read [Tuesday’s] budget before they decided [to defeat it],” and economic uncertainty would be compounded by a federal election. If, as expected, the Liberal motion gains the approval of the House, Harper will then be forced to ask Governor General David Johnston to dissolve Parliament and call an election likely slated for May 2, 2011.

  1. The strength of this country is Canadians who STAND OF FOR HUMAN RIGHTS !

    And after you watch that video, read this website and GET ACTIVE !

    OUR BUREACRATS ARE AS GOOD OR AS BAD AS WE LET THEM BE, AND IF YOU ASK ME, WE NEED NEW BLOOD !

    Make this your inspiration, who can dispute Montaigne?

    "Presumption is our natural and original disease. The most wretched and frail of all creatures is man, and withal the proudest. He feels and sees himself lodged here in the dirt and filth of the world, nailed and rivetted to the worst and deadest part of the universe, in the lowest story of the house , and most remote from the heavenly arch, with animals of the worst condition of the three, and yet in his imagination will be placing himself above the circle of the moon, and bringing heaven under his feet.."

    As long as we are so presumptuous, human rights are on life support.

    • LOL!

  5. I hear the pundits say Canadians don't care about ethics because it is not a bread and butter issue. It is so annoying to suggest that a person's character and conduct is not important when they hold public office. We might as well allow criminals to hold elected office as long as the economy is good ( Which I don't believe). A person's character will go along way to tell the electorate about his decision making and the people he/she surrounds themselves with. If you cannot tell the public how much you are spending on a public policy, then you have something to hide. The Cons. has been very desrespectful of the parliament and the people because they play to a tiny segment of the population and it's time to change Govt. though it is going to cost $400. At least a good price to pay for democracy compared to $1b for G20 photo-op for Harper.

  7. I want to hear what Ignatieff has to say about this issue:

    On March 21, 2011, in response to criticism from opposition justice critic MPP Ted Chudleigh, regarding the "compensation policy" of the provincial Criminal Injuries Compensation Board, McGuinty said: “We think there's something fundamentally wrong. … We think we need to work together to resolve that. … We think we can and ought to bring about changes to ensure that this does not happen again.” Moreover, he said, “I think there is a real case to be made here for these families who lost children, and we think that we can do something.”

    Anybody think this has the potential to become a National Scandal?

  9. We have the opportunity to elect a stronger conservative minority with the NDP as the loyal opposition. Best part is that Iggnatief will be gone back to the states or England or wherever. Bring on Bob Rae to complete the destruction of the Liberal party. Then they can eat some humble pie and actually meet some Canadians and listen to them. In four or five years the Liberals might be relevant again.

  10. LOL!

    • Why is it bad that someone worked overseas?

      Who do people hate on people who are worldly? Or educated? It doesn't make sense!

  12. Online publications need to disclose the "whole truth" to electorate, but most have not discussed Harper corporate tax reductions. This budget totally ignored Liberal and NDP objections surrounding Harper corporate tax reductions.

    From the Toronto Sun site today:

    The federal Liberals have vowed to vote against a budget that doesn't address the issue of a series of tax cuts were passed into law back in 2007. They do not need to be in this year's budget to take effect next year.

    "The Liberal Party believes in standing up for the Canadian middle class family," Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff said. "So it's a choice, a very clear choice between giving presents to big corporations and helping the middle class family and we know what side we're on."

  14. Why am I not surprised? These three amigos did it before, today is just a refrain. Not only "not reading" but there was no glimpsing or parsing involved either – so pathetic. I would have liked the conservatives to have gone deeper on spending cuts, instead of an NDPized budget.

    • Harper was lying. Each of the opposition parties had the budget in their hands before it was announced in Parliament by Flaherty. Therefore, they knew what was in the budget. Macleans shouldn't perpetuate lies.

  16. Hi Lucky….Don't forget the $1 billion, fake lake. What kind of a necessity is that, in a recession.?

    The other thing that alarms me is. I was told to Google: Harper delivers plans of, Global Governance for Canada. Everyone present, were totally shocked by his speech. I would rather keep our country sovereign, and throw Harper right off the planet. Harper said, the Global Governance has been worked on, since 1945. Canada is in dire danger, with Harper. He even said, the government was to be referred to as, "The Harper Government". Scientists are no longer to publish their results. Harper has to hide their pollution facts. Harper also wants Fox, to be his personal propaganda machine. Harper controls all of the provinces HST, the tax goes directly to him. The HST was designed for big business, only. Harper is thieving from the citizens and giving our money to big business. He has become a total dictator. It is the huge corporations, that will be the Global government. Harper, just gave big business, ANOTHER tax reduction. This will come off Canadians paychecks.

    I'm happy to call the government, "The Harper Government", I am not to blame for, his rotten dictatorship government.

  17. I watched the Federal House TV channel. There was a motion passed, by the entire House. The motion was to give, banks, mines, huge corporations, oil and gas company's, billions of our tax dollars. They are also given, huge tax reductions. And, Harper did give the wealthiest outfits in the world, another tax reduction, which of course, is passed along to the tax payers to pay for. Why is our government stealing from, Canadian citizens, to give to huge corporations? Well, it is said, the Bilderberg Group, which is the wealthy corporations, that will govern the entire world. It was also Hitler's plan for his thousand year Reich, which would have also governed the entire globe. Instead of calling it the, Thousand Year Reich. They call it, Global Governance. Ignatieff recognizes the danger, I don't know if Layton or the Bloc does. They did say, Harper is going to totally ruin Canadian lives. Ignatieff says, Harper is rabid to win, this next election, and will stop at nothing to do so. Harper is not for Canadian families. I just hope Canadians recognize this.

    • Yeah, Ignatieff who strongly campaign in funding stadiums in Quebec and elsewhere. Same smart ass who support all kinds of spending to get votes? That Ignatieff? Or does he have a twin somewhere?

  19. The fix was in a long time ago. The three stooges will form a coalition given the chance, and they think this will be that chance. Good bye Canada if they succeed. Liberals are scum sucking power hungry criminals. Those who support them are no better!

    • What lies? Harper did not spend $1b for photo-up or given this great country the largest deficit in it's history. Remove your head from the sand. At least seek and read with an open mind. We are squandering every opportunity to make great slides but this PM. is too much of a bully and U.S. republican wanna be that, we are leaving our children and great grand children a lot to deal with in future. I hope you care about that.

      • Another one of those huh! Largest deficit in history? Check the Trudueau years, that was when the largest deficits and debts have been accumulated.

        • Jesus man, How long ago was that?

          We might as well call Harper Mulroney and be done with it. At least that happened after I was born.

          • Yet we have not finished paying those debts and interests, imagine that.

          • And we should accumulate more debt to pass on savings (tax cuts) to large corps.
            If we are going to cut taxes, and borrow to boot, then the money should go into canadians hands.

            Highest level of household debt -> give the citizens a tax break not corps
            Stimulate the economy? -> GIVE MONEY TO THOSE WHO SPEND! AND THEY WILL SPEND!

            Government should be for the people, not just businesses.

          • Scandinavian socialist countries (which consistently top the list of economic successes) consistently voted to have their corporate taxes lowered as this improved their economy and job prospects. Out of jealousy and envy how I wish it is not so, but reality works contrary to many of our wishes. This is one of those things where our spite could come back to haunt us. With investment money becoming so fluid, investors can transfer money just by a click of a mouse. Aside from that we are not competing only among ourselves within Canada, we have to compete with many countries for those investments. Canada at times has to function as business entity to succeed as a country.

          • Are you on medication? They have higher corporate and income taxes in Scandinavian countries (including Germany) than here. Only Ireland has one of the lowest corporate taxes and see what it brought them now.

          • Sweden and switzerland have lower corporate taxes yet higher personal taxes.

          • Hey Dontbeblind – I am not responsible for your living beyond your means and acquiring your (get me – your) debt.

            By the way – businesses pay your wages so that YOU can pay taxes.

  25. What lies? Harper did not spend $1b for photo-up or given this great country the largest deficit in it's history. Remove your head from the sand. At least seek and read with an open mind.

I hope you care about that.

  26. If Ignatieff supported the Govt. spending spree, why are you and this Govt. not given him any credit for the economy? You cannot blame him for supporting the Govt. stimulus package and give Harper credit for the same package. Oh, I forgot, Cons. don't give credit where it is due. Lying, cheating, influence peddling, escort service seeking, bribery, in-and-out election stealing CONS.

    • Hey, no pamphleteering allowed, especially not CAPS LOCK ! You shall be reported. It shall be in the hands of authority.

    • funny but the way i see it, when i go to the polls i have more choices than that. for those of you who don't remember history, harper and his government got elected when martin was "expected to win". anything can happen in an election and that's why every vote counts. perhaps you should think about who you want to vote for instead of letting someone decide for you, otherwise democracy is dead.

  39. The Opposition is playing its cards right : sidestep the budget completely, ignore it, given that it was produced by a government found in contempt of Parliament. Such a government cannot be trusted and is therefore unfit to govern, pure and simple. It has lost the confidence of the House and the write must be dropped.

    • Correction – lost the confidence of the Opposition of the House.

      • It is correct in saying the Government has lost the confidence of the House, no need to specify.

      • Yeah, the opposition do not even have confidence on themselves, and each other (kiss- kiss, as they turn their back on each other, stab-stab), what a bummer. If the coalition wins, the rest of Canada will be open for Bloc's blackmail to prop up the coalition's continuing survival – even more of a bummer. Do we really have to pay a hundred million election so we could be taken for ransom?

    • Another oxymoron ''A minority government lost the confidence of the house''. Can a statement be more stupid. It is like calling a minority government ''dictatorship''. In any other country, you'd be slapped silly and told that you are not making sense.

  41. Hey, no pamphleteering allowed, especially not CAPS LOCK ! You shall be reported. It shall be in the hands of authority.

  42. I might have to vote "none of the above". Until one of the parties really sets itself apart there will continue to no real alternative. For me, we need a party that will get us out of all "foreign adventures".

    We are not a "super power". With our limited financial resources our emphasis should be on homeland security. In that regard the threat to our way of life comes in an economic form. We need to counter the economic threat to our Arctic, protect our coastal fisheries, deal with internal unrest, root out terrorist cells, and, first and foremost, keep our country financially viable.

    Please promise the above and you will get my vote.

  51. Well that is quite the surprise, I had no idea they were going to support the non-confidence vote.

    But seriously

    It had to get there at one time or another, Mr Ignatieff is bleeding from all the 'friendly' knives pushing in between his shoulder blades. The Liberal Party of Canada probably had a sniper on him after the budget just in case his first sentence at the scrum started with the words 'We will support….''

    Gilles is in Québec talking about a possible coalition after the election if there is another Tory minority. The NDP and Liberal caucus are probably buying little Gilles dolls and needles by the thousands.

    Jack… I am not sure. In politics, one takes a course of action when one think there will be a gain. Maybe he knows something I don't.

    The PM has been quite clear so far; no need for an election. But he must know by now this is where we are going. So be it.

They are planning a coalition of the stupid…with Bob Rae in the background as master goof-ball puppeteer. Hopefully Bob lubes up before jamming his hands up Jack and Iggy's posterior.

  56. That's life. We have to deal with stupid, but there are degrees.

    There's stupid, stupider and stupidest, and stupid looks very, very good at this point.

    Truth is, he's not that stupid, his name is Michael Ignatieff and if Canadians don't recognize intelligence, they will get the stupid they deserve.

  60. Harper could have provided the documents asked for last fall and avoided a Contempt of Parliament citation!

    Harper could have provided exactly what the NDP had requested and the NDP would have voted for the budget and again avoided defeat of it!

    If you want to put the blame on who really drove us to this election go ask Harper! He had his finance minister table that budget and he instructed everyone that there would be no changes to it! So much for Harper NOT wanting an election!

    Face it, the defeat of the budget was orchestrated by Harper. He wanted the budget to fail because he knew the Contempt of Parliament charge would stick and his government would have had to fold on CONTEMPT charges. Now, with the orchestrated defeat of his garbage budget he can claim it was the economy and he will fight the election on the economy and point at the other three parties for triggering the election which Harper wanted in the first place.

    What a smarmy guy, Harper is. And this is NOT just politics, it is power hungry despotism by Harper! He could care less if it costs Cansdians hundreds of millions for an election just so long as he can get that brass ring at the end!

  61. Sweden and switzerland have lower corporate taxes yet higher personal taxes.
