Government Has No Confidence In Own Government Institution

April 29, 2008

It looks like the governing Conservatives opposed a motion expressing confidence in Elections Canada.

Okay, I think I’m going to have to have somebody explain the Conservative reasoning behind this.

If the government does not trust its own institutions, then wouldn’t it be that government’s responsibility to reform it?

Anyway, it seems that the Conservatives had two choices in this matter: 1) vote for the motion, and state that they simply are having some disagreements with some parts of Elections Canada; or 2) vote against the motion, place non-confidence in the institution that was instrumental for them in get into power (or do we have to redo that last election), and please some partisans that were going to vote Conservative anyway.

Sure, option 1 may have made the Conservatives look at little stupid, but the chosen option 2 had made the Conservatives look real stupid.
