The democratic deficit...once again...
Paul Martin keeps talking about the democratic deficit. He seems to be making it larger, no?
Liberals made a sudden move to control the timing of a possible election, by restricting when the opposition will be able to introduce a motion that could possibly topple the minority government.
Liberals accused Conservatives of trying to "hijack" the legislative agenda, while Conservative leader Stephen Harper said the government is on a "death watch."
Harper was furious, and hinted his party will no longer help the Liberal government remain afloat.
The fury happened Monday night, when government House Leader Tony Valeri cancelled the upcoming "opposition day" scheduled for Wednesday.
