Canadians are going to throw the bums out. The minority government of Paul Martin, which is pretty much as corrupt as it is humanly possible to imagine, has gotten a no-confidence vote. So, there will have to be an election for all 308 seats in the lower House of Commons. In a sense, the entire government just got thrown out.
Conservative Stephen Harper said:
"This is not just the end of a tired, directionless, scandal-plagued government..." adding, "It's the start of a whole new tired, directionless, scandal-plagued government."
