By-elections part 2

A re-BobRae-HiRes-1282x1750posting of an earlier post. Here’s another way of setting the by-elections for Bourassa (Denis Coderre) and Toronto Centre (Bob Rae) independent of the Prime Minister. There would be four set election dates, which would be three months apart on which you would hold any by-elections. For example the set election dates could be the first Monday in the months of March, June, September, and December. When a Commons seat goes vacant the Speaker of the House informs the Chief Electoral Officer of the vacancy and the By-election would be on the second set election date after the seat goes vacant. If Coderre had waited 2 days the by-elections for Bourassa and Toronto Centre would of been on Monday December 2. All by-elections would be 3 to 6 months after a seat goes vacant. When the Partisan kiddies fight over the election date toy you take it away from them! Barry.
