We have all been praying for a breakthrough with our current minority Parliament. Readers of this blog are pretty savvy when it comes to Canadian politics so you all know that we have been facing a game of brinksmanship over the last couple of weeks over a crucial confidence motion that will be voted on Friday evening around 10:15 PM. (It is likely that the House of Commons will recess for the summer after this vote.)
In the last 24 hours there have been unprecedented talks between the leader of the Opposition and the Prime Minister. This is good news when you have a minority situation. It is better for them to meet privately and negotiate solutions to work together. Indeed this seems to be the situation around the big issue of Employment Insurance.
Thank you for praying for a solution rather than another election.
Thank God for bringing His wisdom and His peace into the volatile situation we were facing in this country. He is listening and He cares!
