The Economist on an early election

Why is Harper so eager to call an election? The Economist dismisses an obstructive opposition and suggests:

What is more likely is that the prime minister saw so many storm clouds on the horizon—a weakening economy, mounting Canadian casualties in Afghanistan, the question of how to deal with a new administration in America and the threat that several scandals may come to a head—that going now became more appealing than being caught in a deluge later.

The prospect of a Harper majority gives me chills. Or maybe that’s just the ads with Harper in a sweater vest.
