Canadian Government defeated

Photo Guelph Mercury: The Speaker of the House follows the Sergeant-at-Arms who carries the Mace, which is removed from the House of Commons when Parliament is no longer in session.

By a vote to 156-145, the House of Commons has passed a non-confidence motion against Stephen Harper’s Conservative government, leading to Canada’s 41st election campaign.

Harper will visit Governor General David Johnston (the Queen’s representative in Canada) tomorrow to formally request the dissolution of Parliament.
