Has the Other Shoe Dropped?

Is the pressure getting to Emerson? Sounds like it:
Emerson was scheduled to hold a teleconference with reporters late in the afternoon. Reporters waited on hold for half an hour before the operator informed them Emerson was "caught in traffic" and would have to reschedule the call at a later date.

Excellent. And now the democratically deficient Fortier has waded in pushing for Emerson's recall?? Unbelieveable:
Members of Parliament who bolt from their parties and cross the floor of the
House of Commons should have to quit and face their voters in a byelection, says
new Public Works Minister Michael Fortier.

Promising news. I will predict right now that there will be no new vote in Vancouver-Kingsway. If Emerson resigns, he's gone for good. But the chances of that have skyrocketed since the original announcement on Monday. Here's hoping it keeps up.
