Canada's minority Liberal Party government was toppled in a no-confidence vote, triggering an unusual and dreaded election during the holiday season. Canada's three opposition parties, which control a majority of seats in parliament, voted against Prime Minister Paul Martin's government Monday, claiming his Liberal Party no longer has the moral authority to lead the nation because of a corruption scandal within his party. The loss means an election for all 308 seats in the lower House of Commons which likely be held Jan. 23. Martin and his Cabinet will continue to govern until the election is held. Martin is now expected to dissolve the House of Commons on Tuesday.
