OTTAWA - The three opposition leaders signed a historic accord Monday, agreeing to topple the government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper at the first opportunity, likely next Monday, and promising "bold steps" on an economic stimulus package.
Harper has but one chance to stop them. He can prorogue - or suspend - Parliament this week, essentially shutting it down until he and his party can return to the House of Commons early in the new year with a budget.
Even on that point, though, there are some constitutional experts who may argue a prime minister cannot prorogue Parliament simply to avoid a confidence motion he surely knows he will lose.
Liberal Leader Stephane Dion said Monday the coalition he will lead will be a "stable, effective alternative" to the governing Conservatives."
There is so much more to that article go here to read the whole thing.
HOW IN THEIR RIGHT MINDS CAN ANY CANADIAN GO FOR THIS? I think this is just a joke, actually I am hoping it is a joke. I thought the vote was loud and clear that Canadians did not want Dion as prime minister so now he is going to try to force his way in? does he think he will have any respect of the Canadian people? he is willing to sign with a party that is for separating our Country? This is madness. This is absolute mutiny and in the old days they would be tried for treason. Seriously can't think that a loosing party can join with the other LOOSING parties to oust the WINNING party..... it doesn't make sense to me. Harper is who Canadians voted for and who should be our Prime Minister, HE IS OUR PRIME MINISTER! Doesn't this open doors for any opposition to oust the other winning party? what is this going to do to the young people who question what good their one vote can do? if this can happen then WHAT point is there in voting at all if the other parties can just get together and try to collapse the Country?
There should be an outcry here people. This is not democracy this is not a fair let the people decide anymore!
I am Canadian. I am outraged.
