The Star says that the Conservatives are prepping their buses for a campaign right after the throne speech. It ought to be apparent now that Harper has chosen this fall as his time to go. The throne speech he's crafting is probably going to walk a fine line between being unsupportable by the opposition but still acceptable to Canada's political mainstream. He'll hem and haw about how the opposition forced him into a campaign, and yet it ought to be apparent by now that he wants one. It's probably the Chretien strategy of hitting the new guy before he gets established, and Harper's going to try to use it to grab a majority.
