Mr. Speaker, Canada is seen as a beacon of democracy across the globe. Sadly this beacon has started to flicker. As Wednesday's Globe and Mail editorial stated:
[The] Liberal government has lost the confidence of the House of Commons. The Liberals may dance on the head of a pin to deny that fact...But the inescapable reality is that a majority of voting MPs in the Commons have served notice that they have no confidence in the sitting government and wish an election
The Liberal government has lost the moral, financial and now the constitutional authority to govern. It is imperative that we put this matter to the people as soon as possible, on Monday. A government should never run from the people. As the official opposition we can no longer support a government which has shown to be corrupt, fiscally irresponsible and blatantly undemocratic.
We in the Conservative Party of Canada stand ready to give Canadians the good, honest government they deserve. Canadians have had enough and they want us to stand up for Canada.
