So, there's now going to be an election. There's also a law on the books fixing election dates to specific times. What happens now? Will the October 19, 2009 election still take place as mandated, forcing the government that's about to be voted in to have a lifespan of just a year? Will the dates somehow reset themselves around this new government, and was there a mechanism written into the law to do that? Or did everyone just not think of this case?

Now, hopefully, the incoming government strikes down a stupid and ill-planned law and we never have to speak of it again.

Leaving aside all the more sensible points, would anyone in their right mind declare an election for the anniversary of the Battle of Hastings?

Fixed election dates? Bleh. Harper's fetishizing of the US system really needs to be stopped.
