If you follow the first link, via Mike in comments, the CBC is reporting that a deal has been reached and that the NDP will get a quarter of the seats in cabinet, but not finance or deputy PM. So...

Wild times. Also kind of funny, Dion reportedly believes he has the "right" to be Prime Minister. I bet somewhere Stephen Harper just gagged a bit.
