Live Blogging of Non-Confidence Vote Marathon

Tonight at 10:00 pm. EDT (15 minutes from now) Parliament will be voting on 18 bills. Fifteen of these are considered confidence motions by liberal House Leader Tony Valeri. Pat O'Brien, the independant liberal MP that defected from the liberal party this month, has said that he will vote to bring down the liberal party unless they delay their plans to implement the same-sex marriage bill. His vote could be the tipping point. Tonight is the best chance Canadians have to bring down the most corrupt federal government we have ever known and call a new election for this summer.

Here is a link if you want to watch the action live on C-PAC.

The first vote of the night was a BQ ammentment dealing with older workers. The vote was not one of non-confidence. The vote passed 301-0.

The MPs are now voting on a motion introduced by Conservative Rona Ambrose. This vote deals with the liberal desire to socialize babysitting for pre-school children in Canada. This is vote is also not one of confidence. All three of Canada's left-wing parties are lining up against this one. The final tally is 95-205.

Voting is now being done by unanimous consent of party whips. The Conservative and Bloc parties are voting against the government. The unholy liberal/socialist NDP alliance has lined up to push the wasteful spending bills through. Carolyn Parish and Pat O'Brien are siding with the government. David Kilgore is voting against. One such motion passed 153-149.

Bill C-43, an act to implement the 2005 budget is now being voted on. The liberals are are standing up in support. Not surprisingly, the NDP are standing up in support. The Conservatives are also supporting this bill since this budget bill does not include the $4.6 billion dollars of pork that was added to buy NDP support.

The liberals survive to rule until another day.

Good night.

Belinda's defection was apparently BROKERED by a go-between working between Stronik and The Martin Gov't.

HOW is the AGREEMENT TO PROVIDE A CABINET POSITION MADE BEFORE THE DEFECTION, especially in light of the Grewal case, not to be viewed as an INDUCEMENT !?!

Why is this not a valid case?

Could this not render her (confidence) vote void? Or at least qualify her for impeachment?
