Green party Leader Annamie Paul says her party's three MPs will vote against a Conservative motion to create a House of Commons committee with a mission to probe Liberal malfeasance.

Paul says the party is voting in what it believes is in the country's' best interest now.

The minority Liberal government has declared the Conservative motion a confidence measure, meaning that a vote in the Commons to pass it would trigger an election.

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh says his party's MPs will not vote to give the Liberals an election he believes they want but is coy about what exactly that will mean when the motion comes up for a vote this afternoon.
