Government to fall on Monday

The opposition parties are set to table their non-confidence motion tomorrow. A vote on the motion will likely be deferred until Monday, at which point Parliament is expected to dissolve.

The text of the motion reads as follows:
"The House condemns the government for its arrogance in refusing to compromise with the opposition parties over the timing of the next general election and for its 'culture of entitlement,' corruption, scandal and gross abuse of public funds for political purposes and, consequently, the government no longer has the confidence of the House."

According to a statement by constitutional expert Ned Franks, in a statement to The Globe and Mail, this will be the first time in over a century that a Canadian government has been defeated on a stand-alone (ie. non-money bill) confidence motion.
