Why is their no Motion for No Confidence in Canada?

Posted: February 15, 2022 by datechguy in Uncategorized

There is one thing about what’s going on in Canada that doesn’t make sense to me.

Unlike the US system where elections are scheduled for specific intervals without interruption in Canada there is a parliamentary system which means that the opposition can call for a vote of “No confidence” in the government which would mean an election.

If Trudeau’s handling of the crisis is as unpopular as polls indicate and the crackdowns as egregious as they seem I can’t understand why the opposition has not made such a motion?

It may be they figure there is more capital to me made from Trudeau making an ass of himself but it might be something worse. It might be there are enough people in the Canadian government who like the idea of crackdowns.

I hope I’m wrong but I suspect that is the case.

    Well, an election is called only if the prime minister LOSES the vote of no confidence. Right now I don’t think the opposition is contemplating that because they most likely believe they couldn’t win it.

    While it is true that the Grits still maintain a minority government, their NDP partners would probably be enough to keep them in office until the next election, at least barring any defectors, which I don’t think will happen.

    I have been wondering the exact same thing, and I think it all comes back to airplanes. The global ruling class has alienated itself from the rest of us by becoming a quasi-ethnicity: all going to the same schools where they learn in the same language, absorb the same sick culture, and (after slutting it up for awhile) marrying only each other.

    All over the world, our leaders are all TWANLOC to those they sprang from. Now they are loyal only to each other, and the only people that they loathe more than the commoners of their birthplace are the commoners of where they live now.
