The non-confidence vote

The vote takes place in a little more than an hour. Discussion on the motion begins at 6:30 with the vote expected around 6:45. At this point, there is little doubt that the government will fall.

UPDATE: Vote call in about 13 minutes. This will be the first time in Canadian history a government has fallen on a pure non-confidence vote.

UPDATE 2: As usual, things drag.

UPDATE 3: The speaker has just informed Parliament that there will be a reception after the vote call to allow Members to exchange Xmas greetings! A nice touch.

UPDATE 4: This government is history. Let the electioneering commence!

UPDATE 5: Final count: YES 171 - NO 133
