Federal Green Leader Elizabeth May is predicting that Prime Minister Stephen Harper will trigger an Election this fall contradictory to the political speak from the party. Something I myself have been writing about for a few weeks now.
“Wouldn’t it be just like Harper to decide that things are looking good for him right now and force Jack Layton into a compromise that even Jack can’t twist himself into,” said Ms. May.
“Ms. May points out that Mr. Harper wrong-footed then-Liberal Leader Stephane Dion a year ago by breaking his government’s own fixed-date election law and going to the polls when the Liberals looked weak. She said she thinks there is a 50-50 chance he will do it again.
“Why would he not say Ignatieff is plummeting in the polls since this whole thing started?” she said. “Our ads have ramped up. His ads aren’t doing much for the Liberals. We can go to the polls now and everyone will still blame Ignatieff. That’s the key thing. If we go to the polls now, voters will still think it was the Liberal guy who did it to us.”
