"Liberals, NDP 'testing the ground' on..."

...a new coalition? Who knows, perhaps this is just the first baby-step towards that ultimate goal of the left.
Liberals, NDP 'testing the ground' on joint anti-prorogation legislation
Jane Taber - Monday, February 1, 2010 1:13 PM

1. Plotting prorogation strategy. Liberal House Leader Ralph Goodale and his NDP counterpart Libby Davies met for more than an hour last week. They were trying to determine if they could put together a joint strategy on limiting the Prime Minister’s powers of prorogation.

The meeting was characterized as at the “discussion” phase with no decisions taken. Indeed, whether the parties will be able to agree on a joint proposal to take to the House when it returns in March is not yet clear.

“The idea of a joint bill was not discussed,” a senior Liberal official says. “So in short, [we were] testing the ground to see if they would support us – and the feeling is they might, at least for some elements.”

    We can never forget that a vote for a Lib/NDP/Bloc candidate in the coming election is a vote for The Coalition against tax cuts and the privitization of the CBC.

    The Conservatives will make sure we don't forget about the coalition.
    I have been waiting to see how they take Layton's coalition signing speech and all the other juicy sound bites that were made during that time.

    No matter what they say, they can't deny a coalition could exist when they campaigned against it last time.
    Even with a new Liberal leader, the genie is out of the bottle.
    In that sense, all the opposition leaders are lame ducks.

    The deal between the unholy troika is still in effect. It was never officially rescinded.
    What comrade Goodale and chairwoman Davies are holding meetings about is how best to resurrect the pact without letting the public know they have done so.
