Citizens need to Act NOW

Congrats all around to the NDP, Bloc, and Liberals for putting "Canadians first" and hammering out a coalition deal -- yes we can!

NDP, Liberals reach deal to topple minority Tory government

NOW

We have to do our part. Over at Vive Le Canada they are telling folks to let the GG know:
IF YOU SUPPORT THE IDEA OF THE COALITION GOVERNMENT,
PLEASE EMAIL YOUR SUPPORT TO THE GOVENOR GENERAL, info@GG.CA

Excellency, If the current Conservative Government loses the
confidence of the House, I support your appointment of a coalition
government to continue the work of the Nation.
Once you have sent that email off and at the same time let your friends and family know how to take action, wander on over to Winnipeg Free Press. Make your vote count by clicking "Yes" for the Opposition to form a coalition government. Right now it's a 69% for so every vote helps to show Canadians what the Harperites defeated and progressive coalition to run government together.

NDP you rock!

Come Together "Right Now"

As Dr. Dawg put it, Layton [is being] accused of smart politics.

"So let me get this straight.

Jack Layton, foreseeing a time when a progressive coalition of opposition parties would be a go, smooths the way with the Bloc Québécois beforehand. Here's a transcript of a conference call (possibly obtained criminally by the Conservatives) that lays it out."

Over at DAMMIT JANET'S blogg a REVOLUTION IS HAPPENING.

For sure, working across difference is "smart politics" and showing "real leadership" in

Coming Together 'RIGHT NOW.'


Democratic coalition-making at it's best! Go Jack!

You be my Obama and I'll be yours!

Mom and Dad are helping with the "arranged marriage" and the lawyers are working out the potential prenup.

It has the makings of a modern marriage one of a working accord.

The Bloc well I think they will be quietly clapping in the chapel. A couple of policy planks that create a bridge for the reluctant couple to walk on - (Like giving Caisse de Depot some kind of needed assistance soon).

And May might well get that Senate seat (but that's for another day).

This is an arranged marriage - a working accord - where power is shared proportional to their nominal seat count.

It would be representative of our pluralistic democracy - our Obama so to speak.

Our theme song will be as they walk down that not-lover's lane

YOU BE MY OBAMA AND I'LL BE YOURS


*until an election with proportional representation firmly in place do we part

Now is the time for Working Accord

No, it's not time to trigger yet another election.

But yes, it could trigger the defeat of the ruling Tories. The move is certain to spark a backlash on Parliament Hill and prompt not a "political war" but a thoughtful RECONSIDERATION of a "Peaceful Working Accord" to brings the Liberals, Bloc, and NDP together to defeat the government.

Could the oppostion form a "WORKING ACCORD" to govern and make government work for Canadians?

I sure hope so

Is there a path forward here in

"Ending Harper's Parliamentary Dictatorship"?

Harper is obviously not into working partnerships with the opposition parties. It also looks like he's willing to use the capitalist financial crisis to remake Canada a neo-conservative state.

If not NOW, when?

A Working Accord might get Canadians back to work and making communities work together through the "Great Depression of the 21st Century", one that is coming to your community and your kitchen table.
