Essentially it works like this:

In exchange for agreeing to the New Democratic Party’s demands for more spending on the environment, social housing, foreign aid and tuition reduction, the Liberals have secured a commitment of support on all no-confidence motions until the budget receives royal assent.

So, basicly, Jack Layton has signed onto the corruption, his denials not withstanding.
