It isn't easy for anyone to come forward with concerns about systemic racism. Now imagine being in the 12th grade and having to push back against those whose actions could literally change your life's trajectory. My latest. via

So it's official. Thanks to the NDP, Greens, and two former Libs now turned independent, the minority Liberal government survives this confidence vote of their own making, 180-146.

Oups, le greffier s'est trompé en annonçant les résultats du vote sur l'amendement. Il a dit 181 pour, 143 contre. C'était l'inverse! «Can you double check that please», lui a suggéré Anthony Rota, vigilant. Rires en Chambre. Et donc place au vote sur la motion.

The amendment to the motion was defeated 181-143. Now they're voting on the motion itself. NDP and Greens voted with the Liberals against the amendment. Bloc and Conservatives voted in favour.

The NDP has voted against the amendment to the motion, so we'll see if they do the same for the actual motion.

Green Leader tells the Star her party's caucus will vote against the Conservative motion. This appears to lock in the outcome everyone says they want: to avoid an election. If NDP opposes to motion, gov't survives. If NDP abstains, Green decision means gov't survives

He says their motion today is a "normal affair of parliament," and that Trudeau is making it a confidence vote because he'd rather go to an election than answer questions about "insider spending scandals" and economic relaunch.

"We are never going to let the arrogance or entitlement of the Liberal Party to stand in our way of asking reasonable questions," O'Toole says.

O'Toole says Canadians deserve better than prorogration, political games, Morneau's resignation and threat of an election right now. "All because the COnservative opposition is asking a few questions about... the appearance of corruption."
