Canada's NDP says want to make Parliament work

OTTAWA, Sept 2 (Reuters) - Canada’s left-leaning opposition New Democrats said on Wednesday they want to make Parliament work -- comments that indicate they might keep the minority Conservative government in power.

The main opposition Liberals say they will present a motion of non-confidence in the government later this month. For it to succeed, all three opposition parties must vote in favor.

“There’s a difference between propping up the Conservatives and making a minority Parliament work ... we want to make Parliament work, we’re willing to, obviously, look at issues as they arise,” New Democratic Party national director Brad Lavigne told CTV television.
