Clarkson's role in the spring 
Via Calgary Grit, I read this quote from Adrienne Clarkson:
"You may be surprised and interested to know that I am really glad to have participated in (a minority government)," Clarkson said in a speech Wednesday, her largest final engagement and a farewell of sorts.
"My constitutional role has lain in what are called 'reserve powers:' making sure that there is a prime minister and a government in place, and exercising the right 'to encourage, to advise, and to warn,' " she said.
"Without really revealing any secrets, I can tell you that I have done all three."

Bart suggests that she might have forced Martin's hand to hold the non-confidence vote.
