Non-Confidence Man

OttawaNew Democrats leader Jack Layton has withdrawn his support for Paul Martin's minority government. Layton doesn't dig the Liberals' lack of desire to stop the increased use of private heath care. As a result, he's no longer got Martin's back.

This means we may see a confidence motion introduced on November 15, with a vote possible on the following day. The last time the Liberals faced a vote of non-confidence was The Thrilla on Parliament Hilla when the late great Chuck Cadman dramatically sided with the Prime Minister in a nail biting 153 to 152 finish. There are times when following Canadian politics is akin to watching paint dry, but nothing was further from the truth on May 19.

I can't wait to do it all over again, but can my heart take it?

Our greatest pretenses are built up not to hide the evil and the ugly in us, but our emptiness. The hardest thing to hide is something that is not there. ~Eric Hoffer, Passionate State of Mind, 1955
