Canada goes back to polls

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

CANADA’S gov­er­nor gen­eral has dis­solved par­lia­ment af­ter a vote of no-con­fi­dence in Tory Prime Min­is­ter Stephen Harper’s gov­ern­ment, set­ting up a fourth elec­tion in seven years. From the steps of the res­i­dence of Queen El­iz­a­beth II’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive in Canada, Harper an­nounced the of­fi­cial launch of the cam­paign, which cul­mi­nates in elec­tions on May 2. He im­me­di­ately con­trasted his Con­ser­va­tives’ eco­nomic re­cov­ery plan with the prospects of op­po­si­tion par­ties form­ing a left­ist coali­tion.
