Mr. Harper could issue the finishing blow

Here's an easy way for Mr. Harper to ensure that Dion and the Liberals finally face the music for their years of innaction, continued yesterday via their embarrasing backdown from the brink of an election...

As per the Throne Speech, introduce a very short Bill, officially repealing the previously passed Bill C-288, the Liberal's "Kyoto Protocol Implementation Act". As indicated by the Throne Speech, the targets are unachieveable, therefore, the Bill has now become redundant.

It has the beauty of NOT officially withdrawing from Kyoto, but boxing the Liberals into withdrawing their own legislation that they managed to pass with much fanfare earlier this year.

Then watch them squirm. Of course, this would be an item of Confidence.

    They'd just abstain as they are now. It wouldn't help them. I think they've basically given the Conservatives a free pass till spring.

    Conservatives need to be careful lest they look like they are playing games with the Liberals and not governing. A fine line to walk. I have confidence that PMSH can do it though.

    Mr. Harper can't call an election. Does the Opposition want an election?

    Good governance is what he has given us. The fact that it makes the Liberals squirm is just good politics...and fun to watch.
