Harper lies and broken promises - the series, Part III - Fixed election dates
"Fixed election dates prevent governments from calling snap elections for short-term political advantage," Harper said. "They level the playing field for all parties and the rules are clear for everybody." Yet Steve, while not quite breaking his own law, broke the spirit of that law by calling an election for October, 2008, thus avoiding the Obama fever, dodging committees calling him on such things as the Elections Canada investigation into his party, and the Cadman affair. He “call(ed a) snap election() for short-term political advantage” at our expense.
