Liberals to get the boot???

I heard this morning while the alarm clock radio went off at 5 a.m., so I was fairly groggy and unsure of the whole story content. What I did hear was that the liberals may be forced to call an election shortly as the rest of the parties want to give them the boot! Over what issues, I do not know, as I came in 1/2 way thru the story. Did anyone else hear this? Was I dreaming? Does this mean that pit bulls may potentially NOT be banned after all, if the fibs get tossed?

Well I think this must be federally because the liberals are a majority government provincially.

Yea, it is probably the Federal Liberals. I think there is a way for the Ontario Liberals, but it has to be a vote of non-confidence if the majority of Liberal back-benchers vote down a liberal bill, I believe. Or maybe not.

yea, I got nothing...

I am afraid the only way we will have peace of mind about BSL in Ontario before xmas is if MB takes a long walk off a short peer or something like that. oh thats terrible. I can't help it.

The next Ontario election will be in October 2007. You are stuck with Mcguinty til then.
As for the feds, don't expect an election for at least 6 months, but most likely a year plus.

The federal parties don't want an election yet---the CPC won't have their convention until March--after which they may start to consider an election...but until then they won't likely be interested in anything of the sort. As far as the BQ is concerned---an election for them only means losing seats so they won't want an election sooner than later either.

I'd say give it about 8 months and then check again
