Let the campaigns begin!

Well it's done. The opposition parties, led by Stephen Harper, have officially introduced their non-confidence motion. The vote is expected to occur on Monday.

I'm sure the Liberals will be hoping for another mini-blizzard to try and keep the opposition members at home, but while it may be white out today, the forecast for Monday is a very comfortable 13 degrees (that's Celsius BTW).

This is apparently the first time in over a hundred years that a non-confidence motion of this kind, stating directly that the House has lost confidence in the current government, has been put forward and with all three opposition parties firmly behind the call, I don't think Martin has enough money left in his gift basket to buy enough MPs off this time to keep the axe from falling.

Keep an eye on Small Dead Animals and of course, Captain's Quarters for all the juicy details.
