If LPC anticipates early election call, let’s get candidates nominated sooner, not later

The story in the Star yesterday – the Liberals are preparing for Harper to call an early Spring election, much earlier then he needs to:

Trudeau told reporters the Liberals are preparing for the possibility that Prime Minister Stephen Harper may call an election much earlier than October 2015, the legislated date for the next federal vote.“Mr. Harper has not once followed his own fixed-election-date law in the setting of elections, so I think it’s only prudent to try and make sure that we’re going to be ready,” Trudeau told reporters.

I agree with that sentiment, and that is why it is good – from my point of view – that the Liberals are calling nomination/acclimation meetings for candidates now. Indeed, in talking to some folks I trust at LPC, they are behind their target in Ontario at this time for getting candidates picked in Ontario ridings. If anything, they need to be calling more of these meetings and get their candidates in place.

As Justin Trudeau says, you can’t assume Harper is going to wait until October 2015 before he calls this next election. You’d be foolish if you assumed that. We need to get candidates nominated now or soon, so they have ample time to prepare.
