Government to Fall Tonight?

Paul Martin's minority goverment is approaching it's first bump in what will doubtless become an ever more difficult road to navigate. The Bloc Quebecois has put forth an Amendment to the Liberal throne speach, one which is increasingly looking like it could provide a vote of no confidence in the government.

The amendment calls for Ottawa to acknowledge that federal taxes weaken the provinces ability to raise revenue. The amendment is strikingly pro-province, and pro-Quebec in particular, and once again shows that the Bloc has no business in the federal legislature. Once again, they are derailing the actions of the government with their seperatist agenda.

Given that everyone is aware of the fact that federal taxes limit the ability of the provinces to raise their own money, one must wonder if the Bloc is explicitly attempting to make the governement fall.

This just shows exactly how vulnerable this government is going to be. I don't imagine it could possibly last more than a year or so.

What a meaningless amendment, but at least it may take care of this farce of a government.

I can't believe how hateful and negative you Conservatives are.
