New Democrats Will Try To Topple Harper Today - But His Liberal Coalition Partners Will Save His Butt Once Again!
"OTTAWA–Federal New Democrats will make a last-gasp bid today to topple the minority Conservatives, citing the country's growing "prosperity gap" as the reason Canadians should go to the polls.
But the political move is destined to fail, all but eliminating the chance of an election in the coming weeks and opening the door to a summer of campaigning by all political leaders in preparation for a possible federal campaign this fall."
And why will the New Democratic motion fail ... you ask? It will fail because dozens and dozens of Liberal Members of Parliament will quietly slink out of the House so that when the matter comes to a vote, Harper will have sufficient numbers to survive. Why don't we simply call the current Parliament what it actually is ... a coalition government of Conservatives and Liberals!
