OTTAWA (Reuters) - Opposition leader Michael Ignatieff said on Tuesday that the Liberal Party will reject the minority Conservative government's budget.

If all three opposition parties vote against the budget, an election will be triggered.

The Liberals had already signaled they would not support it unless the government revoked corporate tax cuts. The New Democrats were seen as the most likely prospect for supporting the budget.
