Free pre-election campaigning. What better time to grandstand and parade your love for our one-tier in name, two-tier in practice health care system?
Preventing anyone from mentioning anything heretical. Premiers will be constantly reminded of the perils of speaking against the sacrosanct.
And Andrew Coyne thinks it's a great excuse to call an early election before any more juicy details of Adscam emerge.This is as much about transparency as Adscam was about flying the flag. And when it happens, it'll be about as transparent as that layer of smog that has just returned to Toronto.
Also, I don't think the Libs would want to risk another election so soon. If they do it, they give Harper and his team yet another shot at a similar (if not the same) campaign and this time they won't make the same mistakes on kiddy porn or their responses (or lack there of) to the attack ads. Though, the Libs might want to call an election to see if they could knock off a couple dozen or so bloc members thus getting the Libs back up to a majority.
