SAN FRANCISCO– The Conservative government in Canada was toppled on Friday after a vote of no-confidence passed in the parliament by 156 to 145.

The vote, supported by the opposition Liberal Party and two other opponent parties, caused an election expected to occur in May.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper is expected to ask Governor General David Johnston to dissolve parliament on Saturday.

Mr. Harper’s party controls 135 seats, shy of a majority of the 308 seats.

Recent polls suggest Mr. Harper’s Conservative Party holds a single-digit lead over the Liberal Party and others.

Some polls suggest the Conservative Party may gain seats after the election in May.
