Dion says considering forcing an election
OTTAWA (Reuters) - Liberal leader Stephane Dion said on Tuesday he was considering forcing an election, which would end the minority Conservative government, but timing was important.
"I'm considering different possibilities, and one of them is certainly to stop (having) strategic voting when we disagree with this government, and then to trigger an election is something we may do," Dion told a news conference.
He said more Canadians wanted an election than before, but added it was not his job to force an election just because Prime Minister Stephen Harper wanted him to do so: "My job is to replace him, and timing is important."
