A Bad Precedent?

The Conservatives have allowed the Senate to vote on a Bill mandating Canada implement the Kyoto Accord (i.e. they won't hold it up) and in turn the Liberals (who control the Senate) have passed the Budget. Doesn't this set a bad precedent? A Liberal private member's bill that will require spending (and thus is unconstitutional) will be passed and the Liberals will not hold up the passing of the Budget (which constitutionally they cannot do). Bad, bad, bad. What on earth is going on?

Where does the constitution state that opposition members can not create money bills? Plus, if I remember correctly, the bill you are talking about has no money attached to it. In fact it is the perfect Liberal bill, make up a rule and force somebody to deliver on it.
