Here we go again - UPDATED WITH MOTION

The NDP want to keep painting the Liberals in a corner, and are doing so with another non-confidence motion in the Government, this time on our economic stewardship... and why not? It's a WIN-WIN situation for them.

Dion backs down, and Jack reinforces the notion that the Liberals are supporting our agenda.

Dion stands up and votes non-confidence, and we go into an election where Jack is sure to pick off a few Liberal seats.

I honestly don't know which option I prefer myself... we'll see on Monday, when the votes are cast.

UPDATE: Here it is...

Business of Supply - Opposition Motion

May 6, 2008 — Mr. Martin (Sault Ste. Marie) — That the House recognize the harmful effects on working and middle-income Canadians of the growing income gap fostered by this government's unbalanced economic agenda, including it's failure to reform employment insurance to ensure that people who lose their jobs during economic downturns are protected and trained, and therefore the House has lost confidence in this government.

    Is there any precedent for the government to support a non-confidence motion? Why couldn't Harper stand up and say "The government, and the citizens of Canada, have lost faith in the ability of the house to effectively function due to the ineffective and juvenile official opposition. It is for this reason that we support Mr. Dion;s confidence motion to allow the people of Canada to decide what kind of government they want - one that gets things done or one that runs away and hides at any opportunity."?

    Change it from non-confidence in the government to non-confidence in the sad state of Parliament.

    Dion is in any hurry to go to an election for obvious reasons. Jacky will play this game for awhile and then the public will realize that he is just a shitty little trouble maker. (real conservative)
