Parliament voting now on election call motion

Canada's Parliament is voting now on the opposition's motion for the Government to call upon the Governor General to dissolve Parliament in the first week of January, with an election in mid-February.

UPDATE: YES 167; NO 129

Motion passed, and house adjourned.

UPDATE 2:

This is, of course, a non-binding motion. Prime Minister Martin has already indicated that the Liberals will simply ignore it. Typical Liberal arrogance on display. The stage will then be set for a non-confidence motion on Thursday.

UPDATE 3:

Comment from Liberal house leader Valeri:

"It's not really a compromise, it's a cop-out that's an attempt to evade responsibility for causing an election during the Christmas holidays,"


Yup, they're ignoring it all right.
