OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada's official opposition Liberals have prepared a motion of no-confidence in the minority Conservative government for possible debate on Monday, a party official said on Friday.

The Liberals and two other opposition parties say they could bring down the government over its fiscal update, which did not include large-scale stimulus measures to tackle the effects of the global financial crisis.

The motion is one of four that the Liberals put on Parliament's order paper. It must choose one of the four for debate on Monday when it gets to set the agenda for the House of Commons.
