Canada's PM may be brought down

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Prime Minister Stephen Harper is daring opposition parties to bring down his minority Conservative government but there is no guarantee voters would reward him for his boldness, analysts said on Thursday.

He shouldn't be so cocky. Canada's Conservative Party has only 126 of the 308 seats in the House of Commons. Harper faces a vote of confidence over his policy plans, and needs the support of another party, or else there will be an election.
