The Quebec election results, the big-spending budget and some interesting polls have all fed speculation that an election is imminent
Well a few weeks ago, I said there would be no Spring election and I still stand by those words.
It would just be too much of a risk for the Tories to go right now.
Also, the government faces the problem engineering of its own downfall, which as journalist/author Paul Tuns notes is no easy task given the dynamics of the House these days.
Says Paul: "It just seems improbable that no matter how much Harper wants an election that the other parties would co-operate with his plan to attain a Conservative majority."
And if we don't have an election in the Spring, it's extremely unlikely there will be one in the Fall.
So my prediction: We go to the polls in Spring of '08.
Remember you heard it here first.
