Down south, I believe this is what they mean when they say someone is "all hat and no cattle":

The Tory government was attacked by all three opposition parties in the House of Commons yesterday for $1 billion in program cuts announced Monday to literacy programs, international internships for students, Status of Women Canada and other social programs.

"All three opposition parties?" Including the Bloc Quebecois? Really? You mean this Bloc Quebecois?

BQ decides to back Tory softwood lumber deal

The Conservatives' proposed settlement of the long-running softwood lumber dispute with the U.S. is likely to win parliamentary approval this fall after the Bloc Québécois said it will back the deal.

To paraphrase an old joke, yes, the Bloc's support is for sale. Now we're just haggling over the price.
