Captain's Quarters is reporting:

Paul Martin has bought the support of Conservative MP Belinda Stronach with a ministerial position, changing the balance of power in Parliament and possibly saving the Liberal Party's grip on power. Martin induced Stronach to cross the aisle this morning by making her the Minister of Human Resource

Interesting, the person who I thought should have been the leader of the new conservative party and was vocal about not bringing down the minority government seems to have made her move by taking this new position.

The budget vote should be a lot closer and may even go Liberal with this change of events; and with said vote it will kill the hopes and dreams of Harper for an early election.
