NDP to put forward Non-Confidence Motion on March 14?

According to La Presse, it looks like Jack might be on the attack... h/t to Dr. Roy
(as translated by Google)
"The motion would be drafted as simply in order to join the Liberal Party and the Bloc Quebecois to the cause of the NDP. "That this House has no confidence in government." If passed, Canadians would therefore to the polls this spring. If they should refrain again, Mr. Layton could in turn attack the credibility of Mr. Dion. In all, the Harper government must give seven days of the three opposition parties by March 14."
Hey guys... we're ready when you are.

UPDATE: According to the CBC, the Non-Confidence motion may come up THIS FRIDAY, March 7.

    This exact type of motion was tried when the Liberals were in the last minority government. They ignored the motion and got away with it. Somehow, I doubt Harper would react the same way. ;)

    The one you're referring to wasn't a binding motion... what they're referring to is the same kind of binding one that DID bring down the House in November of 2005.

    The "non-binding" (if the GG had any guts, she'd have simply pulled the plug on her own after it) one was a "procedural" motion referring something back to a committee.

    The actual one was an Opposition Day motion that was worded almost precisely the same way, and really gave PM the PM no choice in the matter!

    I doubt that Harper wants to go to an election on the heels of the Cadman Affair.

    The Cadman affair?
    Good for about a week...
    maybe two or three if the media really works it
    Much ado about nothing. My concern is that the Conservatives have the widow Cadman running for them. I listened to the CTV audio interview of her. Did not sound to sharp.
