NDP eating out of our hand

With last nights Quebec election results, and their recent fall in the polls, the NDP is quaking in their seats, absolutely terrified of the prospect of an election being called.

As such, it looks like they are eating out of our hand... who needs an election when the very threat of an election is letting you get things done?

OTTAWA - A bill to automatically jail people for more than one dozen gun crimes appears to have enough support to pass the Commons, weakening speculation the government could trigger an election by painting the opposition as obstructionist on anti-crime legislation.

The NDP is planning to team up with the Conservatives to vote for the proposed legislation -- a centrepiece of the Conservative justice agenda -- giving it the backing it needs in the minority Parliament.
Now that's a twist for you... a Prime Minister using the threat of the House falling against the Opposition! Isn't it supposed to be the other way around?

You gotta laugh at that one!

    Introduce a motion to bring the IPCC's reports to a public commission to put the science to test and see if the government does not fall LOL.
