The NDP has threatened to try to topple the Tory government, unless Prime Minister Stephen Harper agrees to make major modifications to his climate change plan.
NDP Leader Jack Layton said Wednesday he was disappointed after speaking with Mr. Harper Tuesday, and upped the ante after the meeting.
He said he would introduce a confidence vote in the House of Commons on Thursday if the Prime Minister didn’t agree to essentially send his Clean Air Act to a parliamentary committee, where the opposition parties could have some input on it.
?We’re hoping that there will be a further response from Mr. Harper by midday today,? Mr. Layton said in an interview with the CBC Wednesday morning.
