No Real Pressing Reason to Go to The Polls

 Libluvin' Globe and Mail journalist Jeffery Simpson, scratching his head  thinking that  there isn't any pressing reason to go to the polls this spring.  He even concedes there is NO MAJOR SCANDAL !!!  You hear that opposition coalition? NO MAJOR SCANDAL!!!
Is Parliament more dysfunctional than usual? Is there an economic, political or social crisis? Is there a major scandal? Is there a big defining issue in front of the country? In short, are there objective reasons why it could be argued that Canada needs an election 2½ years after the last one?
The answer to all of these questions is obviously no.
He goes on to point out that only the Conservatives and the Bloc will benefit and doesn't understand what the  Liberals and the NDP are thinking.
Just why the Liberals and NDP apparently want an election is less explicable.
Even with all the controversy surrounding the Conservative government's "so called ethical problems," they are still the most trusted to deliver honest government and nothing has really changed in the latest Nanos poll.

So if the coalition gangs up and brings this current government down, they will do so at their own peril. To that I say then bring it on so that we can elect a Conservative majority  government and stop this whole nonsensical shenanigans that the coalition have been engaged in ever since the Christmas break so that real work can get done for real Canadians.
