CTV News has learned that the Conservatives have informed the Liberals that they'll be looking to table a motion focused on the ongoing rail blockades, rather than a motion of non-confidence during their opposition day debate on Thursday.

The decision to hold off on moving forward with the first non-confidence motion of the 43rd Parliament comes after both the Bloc Quebecois and NDP said they would not support the move.

An email obtained by CTV News indicates that instead, Thursday's opposition motion will call on the House to in part, "stand in solidarity with every elected band council on the Coastal GasLink route… and condemn the radical activists."
