Ignatieff on Liberals' No-Confidence Motion

From Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff's remarks today to the House of Commons on his party's tabling of a no-confidence motion:

"Mr. Speaker, I rise in this House today to announce formally that the official opposition has lost confidence in the government. This is a serious step and we owe an explanation both to this House and to the Canadian people of our grounds for doing so.

“The Conservatives have given Canada a government whose only ambition is its own survival, and treats adversaries as enemies. They’ve set low standards for Canada, and failed to meet them.”
