Forresten, en nyhet på tampen av en fredag. Den sentrum-høyre mindretallsregjeringen til Stephen Harper tapte et mistillitsforslag i parlamentet, og nyvalg må skrives ut. Hva gikk mistilliten ut på:
Canada Government Toppled After Opposition Pressure: «The Liberals were originally going to bring down the government over corporate tax cuts and spending billions in new fighter jets, but recent ethical issues helped them make inroads in furthering the image of Harper as an autocrat who shuts Parliament when it suits him.
Last week, Harper asked police to look into the activities of Bruce Carson, a key former aide. Carson, 66, is accused of using the access he had to senior members of the government to lobby on behalf of a company affiliated with his 22-year-old fiancee, a former escort.
The opposition parties were also united against Harper’s latest budget plan, but they wanted to defeat the government over allegations it is in contempt of Parliament.»
