One Week Until Canada's Federal Election: 2 May 2011

With only one week remaining in Canada's federal election, Conservative Party Leader Stephen Harper continues to mislead Canadians.

Harper says repeatedly, "The opposition forced this election."

Harper also says repeatedly that the Opposition Parties caused the election by voting against the government budget proposal.


Harper's minority government fell because it was found in Contempt of Parliament.

Members of Parliament voted on a Liberal motion of no-confidence and found the Conservative government in contempt of Parliament. The motion passed by a margin of 156 to 145.

It was an epochal event as it was the first time a Canadian Government has fallen on Contempt of Parliament, and marks a first for a national government anywhere in the Commonwealth of fifty-four states.
