Prime Minister Martin has navigated his way around his first potential disaster. However, rumours are already swirling of another amendment -- this time put forth by the Conservatives -- which could once again threaten to derail this government.

However, the current situation actually forces governing by consensus -- something our MPs are not used to doing.
