Politics in Canada

If you are Canadian, you probably know of the current situation that the Federal Liberals (minority government) are in and with Belinda Stronach crossing the floor to the Liberals. Now charges are flying back and fro between the Liberals and the Conservations that there were poaching attempts and bribes, etc.

All these came about because of corruption that was rifed during Jean Chretien's reign as Prime Minister where there were millions of dollars of taxpayers money that were funnelled to the Liberal parties via 3rd party agencies. Now the current PM who is no fan of Jean Chretien claims that he is now trying to get to the bottom of the corruption (via a public inquiry) even though he served as Finance Minister during those years.

Canadian politics have never been this interesting since (well, I wouldn't know).
