Coalition Government


I majored in History, which demanded I take a few Canadian history courses, and even I'm confused by what's taking place in Ottawa right now.

Stephane Dion's Liberals have proposed a governing coalition with the NDP.  A non-confidence motion drafted by the Liberal Opposition could be introduced in the House of Commons as early as Monday.

If it passes, and it sounds like it might unless Harper's Conservatives change their tune, the Liberals and New Democrats would visit Governor General Michaëlle Jean to request her permission to try to form a coalition government.

That's right, Dion could become our Prime Minister without an election.  Stay tuned, things are starting to heat up in the nation's capital.
