Waiting for the budget votes....

Like all Canadians, I am eagerly anticipating the votes this afternoon. It looks at this point that there won't be an election and I am in favour of that at this time, in spite of how much fun it might be to see Martin & Harper duke it out over the next month or so. But, we are likely to be spared that match right now only to have it occur in the winter or whenever the Gomery commission reports. Will this be a better scenario for the country? If it can hold the rising tide of separatism and allow for the federal government to take some constructive steps to deal with the adscam corruption then it just might be worth it. Let's hope they use the time constructively. Like, maybe we could start with someone in Intergovernmental Affairs picking up the phone to call Stephane Dion and pick his brain on this...?!?
