    Government Falls, For Now

    Stardate 4933.2

    With a losing 171 to 133 non-confidence vote, the minority Liberal government fell last night to the Opposition parties. Today, Prime Minister Paul Martin is expected to ask the Governor General Michaelle Jean, to dissolve the government and call an election, which is widely expected to be held on January 23rd.

    This is shaping up to be one of the longest campaigns ever, and the first winter campaign in a quarter century. The ironic thing is, after all of this, the Liberals still cling to the lead in the polls. These numbers could easily carry on into the election, leaving the results unchanged from what they were. That would be the final nail in Stephen Harper's political coffin as far as I am concerned. But as always, the people will decide. So ignore the inevitable mudslinging in the upcoming campaigns, and focus on what you truly think is the best vision of what Canada should be!

    *** UPDATE ***

    It is done. The election shall be nine days after my birthday (what a present another Liberal government will be WOOT!!!) on January 23rd, 2006.
