"Recollections vary".

I don't remember that part, I just remember them being pissed they didn't get Harper.

Well, if it means anything:

From: (from 2008)
The Liberals and New Democrats signed an agreement on Monday to form an unprecedented coalition government, with a written pledge of support from the Bloc Québécois, if they are successful in ousting the minority Conservative government in a coming confidence vote.

it wouldn't have been a "full" coalition (with Bloc members serving in cabinet), but in my opinion, their participation in the agreement would have been enough to poison it.

That's actually not what I meant with 'recollections vary'.  I know the Bloc was included in the coalition, I just don't remember the outrage being because because of it.

I remember on the old site, and also in the office I was working at the time, a lot of people were just peeved that the party with the most of number of seats wasn't about to form a government.   

I don't remember anyone citing the Bloc as their reason.  It was Stephane Dion they hated.
