Could the coalition be plotting to vote non-confidence in the Conservative government with their trumpeted up charges of "contempt", then go to the GG to show that they are ready to take over the governing of Canada?
Could they be that stupid? It didn't work right after the last election, they might feel that it could work this time, before an election, especially with the GG saying that a coalition government is possible.
No. They might be a coalition, but I think they feel that all their faux scandal mongering is enough to get them enough votes to form a Liberal/NDP coalition, with the Bloc's help in taking over Canada's Parliament.
I wish them no luck. This "possible" election is going to be framed as a "Conservative majority or Opposition coalition". Voters will have to make the choice between a stable Conservative government for 4 years with a majority, or an unstable coalition government that wants to raise taxes and spend Canada further into debt during economic uncertainty.
I'm betting Canadians will go for a Conservative majority, even with the biased media working for the coalition.
