Oh Canada

Will somebody please vote this guy and his party out of office? Pretty please? Looks like it might just happen tonight. For those of you who aren't familiar, Canada has this funky thing where the minority government can lose it's position of power by a no-confidence vote taken by the Members of Parliament. A no-confidence measure is a motion that someone from an opposing party brings forward, stating that the party in power no longer has the "moral authority" to govern the country. It expresses the "non-confidence" of the people in the leadership.

In this case, if an election is called in January, Paul Martin's party will most likely fall. Let's hope it happens soon. Good riddance.

UPDATE: Martin's government is toppled. Election to be in January. I'll get to vote while I'm home!! Story here.
