So um, I heard the Canadian government "fell". No confidence vote of the current party and its leader. How does that work? Who runs the place while they are gone? Is mass hysteria going on yet?
And when will V show up?

It's not that interesting. There's going to be elections.
We should have some **** like that down here. Elections now!

We no longer Tax Chi here since the Boston Chi Party, when the British forced us to use their Chi and Taxed us for it."Quiet fool before I am kicking the butt!"

To expand on Ronin's explanation a little. The last Liberal Government under P.M. was accused of giving cut-backs in a sponsorship scheme years ago.What interesting is that no more than 300 million was spent (or wasted depending on your point of view) in a few years.
The NDP asked for a 'No confidence vote ' on parliament. The Liberals lost so now they have to declare elections. Yes the present government is still in power and no one has begun eating the brains of our neighbours.

This is but a smoke screen.
The true reason is chi, and lack thereof.
yes, the taxation of Chi has been paramount in our minds, especially in the Chinese communities.
I mean, taxing chi is like taxing the air we breathe !!
When will it end ?
The lack of chi in the goverment is NOT the fault of the people who have chi.
The goverment has always been reckless with their chi, lending it out to everyone that askes for it.
That is not the fault of the people.
We should not have our chi taxed because of the goverments lack of Chisical responsibility.

Okay well lets just say that minority governments never last. Its like asking the democrats and republicans to play nice for four years....it aint gonna happen. All it means is that well have an election in late Jan, and that the Liberals will win it. I still dont know why the conservatives called it...oh and if for some reason that the conservatives win, it will also be a minority government. And the shelf life of a conservative minority government in Canada is about 5 minutes...ahh I love politics:)

There has to be some advantage to tossing the bums out when they're no longer working out. Down here, a bad politician hangs around and festers, like a dead animal under the porch.
