OK. Now for the "crisis."

It's coming, just like the storms of fall.
The economy is tanking again, the Afghanistan pull-out is on the horizon, and Stephen Harper pledged to the G-20 that he would make big spending cuts this spring. Plus stimulus spending ends at the end of March. All-in-all, 2011 is already shaping up to be a hard year.
Plus Ignatieff is shaking off the mantle of Stephane Dion. And the country is warming to the idea that Harper is a control freak.
So, yes, look for the crisis that vapour-locks Parliament and "forces" an election. Will it be a crime bill? The pending mini-budget?
Trust me. It will be something.
