Why now, during the summer?

Protesting again
The main reason I think there will be an election call soon in Quebec is timing. The kids (big and small, young and old) who’ve been marching down the streets banging pots and pans, blocking traffic and generally making a nuisance of themselves, are his best shot at re-election. The more the protesters annoy quiet, taxpaying Quebecers, the better the chances of a Charest re-election. But if he waits too long, the protesters might get tired of protesting…

So my wee prediction is that the call will come in the next two weeks and that the vote will take place in very late August or early September. Unless I’m wrong, of course.
