Not a coalition

Some young man up in Sault Ste. Marie is confused. Paul Martin's Liberals and Jack Layton's New Democrats have not formed a coalition government. A coalition government is formed only when cabinet posts are allocated amongst members of two or more political parties, usually in proportion to the number of seats held by each. Martin's government is still a single-party Liberal minority government, whose budget Layton has simply agreed to support in exchange for specified concessions. No more, no less.
