A parallel universe exists, it's called Blogging Tories. In that world, you hear words like "takeover", "undemocratic power grab", "arrogant opposition", "coup d'etat", etc, etc. Maybe a visual aid, to help clear up some misconceptions might be helpful:
Okay, let's go slow, so we don't lose anybody, even though the concept is simple. See the two darker shades of blue, those are Conservative cabinet ministers and Conservative MP's. Now train your gaze to the red, light blue, yellow and gray colors. You will note the red, light blue, yellow seats outnumber the darker blue seats. Each seat denotes a riding, each seat carries the same weight in a entity we call Parliament. Canadians elect people to sit in those seats, they don't elect governments, they elect a thing called MP's. The above is a situation, called a "minority government", repeat after me, because the term seems to escape some "MINORITY". That means, the actual "majority" of democratically elected officials are not Conservatives, I know hard to believe isn't it.
So, when the red, light blue and yellow guys and gals decide to get together, it translates to a majority of said democratically elected officials and hence it would have the weight to govern, what with representing their constituents and such. You can't really have a power grab, when you had the power to begin with. You can't arrogantly take control, because in totality you always had it, just now, it is being exerted.
It's not the opposition's fault that Conservatives can't add, nor is anyone's fault that the arrogance, political opportunism and delusions prevented a accurate reading of reality. That shit's on you guys, heaps and heaps of reeking dung, completely self-inflicted, entirely and utterly of your voluntary choosing. We aren't witnessing a coup silly souls, we are witnessing an organic expression of democracy in it's purest form. Blame the voters, and beyond that please just keep blaming yourselves and the misguided sense of entitlement.
