So what are the Liberals' conditions for keeping the government in power. Well actually there are none. The Liberals are not demanding that the government actually do anything, only that it report on what it is doing.
As the CBC reports:
According to Ignatieff, the government must meet the following four conditions to maintain support from the Liberals:Yessirree, they have to “provide more details”, “give more information”, “show more details” and “provide clearer answers”. However, they are not required to actually do anything.
- Provide more details about improving the employment insurance system before the House of Commons votes on budget estimates at the end of the week. The government has said it will introduce unspecified new EI proposals in the fall.
- Give more information about the rate of stimulus spending than included in last Thursday's progress report.
- Show more details on the government's plan to contain the ballooning deficit, instead of offering what Ignatieff called "rosy projections."
- Provide clearer answers on the government's plan to deal with Canada's medical isotopes shortage.
That's the Liberal hardline. Go Iggy Go.
