OTTAWA (Reuters) - The leader of Canada's main opposition Liberal Party said on Wednesday he will present a motion of nonconfidence in the minority Conservative government, setting the stage for an election.

"We have the responsibility to say clearly and unequivocally that this is a government that has lost the confidence of the House of Commons, it is a government that has lost the confidence of Canadians," Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff told reporters.
