IF There Was Going To Be A Fall Election…

August 22, 2008

…It would probably be called before September 8th, the date of 3 by-elections. There would be little use in sending these ridings to the polls again so soon.  The timing of conventions makes a later fall election unlikely.

If there is no fall election, one might as well wait for the scheduled on Monday, October 19th 2009.

Hmm, come to think of it, if there was a fall election, it could be on Monday, October 20th 2008.

    Of course, there’s equally little practical use in calling all of the by-elections when Harper did if the campaigns were just going to be cut short anyway. (Though there are a couple of strategic considerations that might explain the sequence.)

    The ridings may have been failed trial balloons of Harpers?
