A Canadian Political Question here

Monday, September 01, 2008

I seem to recall that the ruling Conservative party brought in legislation that an election had to be held on a certain, predesignated day down the road in a few years.  And that it was made illegal to simply call an election whenever the ruling party wanted.

With all this talk of a looming election, IĆ¢€™ve been wondering how this can be accomplished, if its now against present legislation to call an election, or to cause your own government to fall.

Any ideas out there?

  1. Steven Harper has commented that the election date law pertains only to a majority government and that a minority government can call for an election at any point. That's what he's commented. Whether that holds up with the legislation that was passed, I'm not sure....


I'm moderating all the comments these days.
