NDP budget passed

In the most dramatic vote that I’ve ever witnessed, the Liberals just squeeked by with Cadman casting his vote to prop up the government. Kingston Liberal MP and Speaker of the House cast the tie-breaker as per tradition.

Such a deflating week for the Conservative Party of Canada…

However, perhaps this is a blessing in disguise because now Canadians will watch Paul Martin try to keep up with all of his spending.

Belinda Stronach cited passing the ‘important spending in the budget for the citizens of Newmarket-Aurora’ as her primary reason for leaving the Conservative Party. Now that the budget has passed, does she represent anything else in the Liberal Party? What is her purpose now?
