March 29th?

"Tories planning spring election? March 29 says a talkative Conservative fundraiser over the phone to a not so receptive solicitee. Just trying to apply pressure to make donations seem more imperative?

Or would it make perfect sense given what the Prime Minister is quoted as saying in a report on Friday?
“I think the Canadian people don’t want an election. I think there is no reason for an election,” he told reporters Thursday during a press conference in Rabat, Morocco, where he announced the beginning of free-trade talks with the North African nation.

“I certainly do not think it is ever inevitable that we would do something the Canadian people don’t want us to do."
Yep, March 29th, a definite possibility.

Update: For reference purposes, the Elections Act on setting election dates.
