In the midst of this meltdown and to change their lagging fortunes, the Liberal party will enter a motion condemning the other Opposition parties for bringing down the Paul Martin Liberal-minority government [Toronto Star, Liberals plan motion slamming . . . NDP and Bloc]:
Liberals will attempt to turn the tables Thursday on rival parties who've ridiculed them for being afraid of toppling the minority Conservative government.Is this what a vote for the Liberal party means? Is this the kind of parliamentary work they were sent to do in Opposition? What's next? A motion condemning Canadians who didn't vote Liberal in 2006?
They'll introduce a motion condemning the NDP and Bloc Quebecois for defeating the previous Grit government in November 2005, thereby enabling Stephen Harper's Tories to win power.
The motion slams the Harper government for setting back women's equality rights by cancelling such Liberal measures as the Court Challenges Program and a national child care program.
Bill Casey should be offended that he wasn't named in the motion since he technically voted to bring down the government while he sat as a Conservative.
The funny thing is, if this were a confidence motion, the Liberals would vote against it.
