    HOW TO START EACH DAY WITH A POSITIVE OUTLOOK

    1. Open a new file in your computer. 2. Name it "Jack Layton". 3. Send it to the Recycle Bin. 4. Empty the Recycle Bin. 5. Your PC will ask you: 'Do you really want to get rid of "Jack Layton?" 6. Firmly Click 'Yes.' 7. Feel better? GOOD!

    Tory minority in jeopardy as opposition talks coalition. Will there be another election?

    Sorry Zip, but you did make the statement regarding elected PM. Which to my mind perpetuates the idea that we elect a PM directly. I get frustrated by the lack of understanding by some people of how the system operates. It may very well have been picking fly crap out of pepper, but this is one...

    Tory minority in jeopardy as opposition talks coalition. Will there be another election?

    Wrong, wrong, wrong. I've said it before, there was no ballot that stated any of the leaders for the position of PM.  Granted there is voting along partisan lines, but we as a nation do not vote for the position of PM Per Se, and until there is reform to the electoral process, we won't. The...

    Tory minority in jeopardy as opposition talks coalition. Will there be another election?

    Actually Dion was elected, as were Layton and Duccepe, now if it were May on the other hand. What people seem to forget is that the PM's office is filled by the leader of the party with the most seats in Parliament (for the most part). The Canadian system does not elect a PM. I must admit...

    If our "Leaders" were to receive a report card at this particular time I would hope that they all had the following comment. "Does not work/play well with others".

    How is it that you know what the PM discussed with the GG? I agree that we probably will be no further ahead on the 26/27Th Jan than we are today. At least he has extended the olive branch to work with/discuss the countries needs rather than pursue partisan policies.

    My sole hope is that now all of the respective leaders will stop behaving like petulant children, and get on with the serious business of running the country.

    Tory minority in jeopardy as opposition talks coalition. Will there be another election?

    I think that the people of Quebec vote for the Bloc, as it is seen to represent their interests as a distinct society within Canada, rather than as an entity to separate from Canada (even though that was the initial mandate when the party formed). I believe that Mr. Harper with his talk of the...

    Tory minority in jeopardy as opposition talks coalition. Will there be another election?

    Canada has had two coalition government in it's history, though never quite under circumstances like this. During the defeat of the Joe Clark government the GG of the time stated he was waiting to hear if the opposition had a plan to for a coalition government...

    While he was "invited", the invitation was sent to him in error, due to a similarity in names of members. The following link to an earlier post states the CC of C , and I believe that the operative wording in part 2 is intent...

    So having the accord just adds strength to their position. Being as all three of the opposition leaders signature blocks were on the letter sent to then GG I submit that an accord had been reached, just not formalized.

    Copy of the letter below; now we all know that an election was called, however this is no different than the current coalition requesting the opportunity to govern. September 9, 2004 Her Excellency the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson, C.C., C.M.M., C.O.M., C.D. Governor General Rideau...

    I have a question for all the posters on the forum. How many of you were this incensed when Mr. Harper tried this same stunt in (I believe) 2004?

    Tory minority in jeopardy as opposition talks coalition. Will there be another election?

    I didn't state anything about them governing for any length of time, I was merely questioning the validity of your statement regarding the first piece of legislation. Nothing more, nothing less. As for the coalition frigging it up, I would agree, as I cannot see them agreeing on a course of...

    What you say is very true, however private members bills very seldom make it to the third reading.
