Do it now before the story dies in the Canadian way all stories do....apathy.
An election is due anyways, using money as an excuse not have an election is in the face of democracy.
That's hillarious Avro, I hope you realize how you've opened yourself up to ridicule with such a statement. Any idiot can run head long toward their demise, coward or not, they're still an idiot if they did not choose to fight and win another day rather than run against impossible odds on a hope and a prayer.
Hey man, I already know what the outcome is going to be. Unless the coalition is working behind the scenes this is a ridiculous waste of time and money.

I know Liberals like keeping Child Molesters and Murders right? They just don't like paying for it.
The new fighter.
The new ships.
Both of these fall under defense. Our armed forces is only now beginning to crawl out of the the neglect and abuse from our previous Liberal government. The F 18 is decades old. I know Liberals hate spending money on defense when it is so much better spent on fake advertising in Quebec.
My post is not fear mongering - Its all in the numbers. When conservative papers roll those numbers out - that is not fear mongering - It is the reality of what Canada is facing over the next 10 - 20 years or so.
The deficit we have incurred is also thanks to opposition party's approving such spending. I don't remember hearing Jack whining about the auto bail out. I cant remember if Celine or Iggy was heading the Libs then.
Lastly - Does the GG have the authority to refuse Harper and offer the Offical Opposition a chance to form a Govt - i think he does - Now that would be interesting i would say.
It's wishful thinking, but plausible, but I got a feeling that it won't happen.
At the end of the day it will be the voter who makes the call and if the chips fall as I think they will, there will not be a lot of dry eyes in this house. (err forum)
Its going to be an interesting election, lots of back and forth here there and everywhere, and though I didn't want an election I will enjoy the debate.
