“FUREY: Anti-Scheer coalition isn’t against rules - here’s why it’s still wrong” by Anthony Furey, quotes Toronto/Ottawa lawyer, Guy Giorno, in an article on anti-Scheer coalition.

Guy Giorno, a former chief of staff to Stephen Harper and partner at Fasken, breaks down possible outcomes at his firm’s website, explaining that “contrary to popular belief, an incumbent prime minister does not need to resign just because another party obtains a plurality of seats in the House. A prime minister whose party is reduced to second place retains the right to meet the House and present an agenda.”
