Canada's Government Has Fallen
The Conservative Party of Canada, and the New Democratic Party joined forces to bring down the Liberal Party in a non-confedence vote. The numbers came in at 7:10PM EST with a vote of 171 to bring down the government vs 133 to keep the Liberal Party in power. As far as I know this is the first time a non-confedence vote has ever been voted upon in the house; usually just the threat of one from the opposing parties is enough for the PM to call an election.
Just to warn you this blog is going to get pretty political during this campaign, attempting to bring out the local members in my riding area, as well as give commentary on the campaign in general.
