Liberal Government Ousted in No Confidence Vote

BBC reports that Canada's moderate center-left Liberal government headed by Prime Minister Paul Martin has been toppled by three opposition parties, the Conservatives, the New Democrats, and the French separatists.  The government was brought down by a corruption scandal where the government had financed anti-separatist efforts.  A new election will be scheduled in mid to late January.   BBC Report  The Liberal government had been a powerful diplomatic force in climate change -- and if it loses the January election and is replaced by a Conservative government -- the future of international climate change efforts becomes cloudier.
