The Big Squeeze

From one side the Conservative Government, and from the other the NDP, who are trying to portray themselves as the official opposition since the Liberals have decided to sit it out.

From CTV: "OTTAWA -- NDP Leader Jack Layton has won the backing of the prime minister to hold a nation-wide referendum on the abolition of the unelected Senate, "

Now sit back and see what the Liberals, both in the House and in the Senate, decide to do. Hang on to your hats folks, the fun has just begun.

It is a very interesting development. Once again Dion and the Liberals are faced with two unpalatable choices.

Oppose the referendum and be seen as supporting the status quo or support the referendum and lose key allies.

My bet is that the referendum will force the Liberals hand in accepting much needed reform in the upper house.
