BIG DEAL, LIBS SURVIVE AGAIN AS TORIES SNOOZE

The confidence votes were a joke, the Tories were caving in and voting with the Liberals all night except for one bill that was sort of close. Interestingly, Pat O'Brien voted much of the night against the Liberals. So his threat came true. Big deal.

Actually Bill C-48, the infamous NDP budget amendment, wasn't on the table tonight, that will be voted on later, in a few days. So no wonder the Tories didn't rush to show up for these "confidence" votes, the one they really are hopping mad over has yet to be voted. So the story isn't over yet, but boy do the Tories ever look deflated in the House.
