Martin to ask GG to dissolve Parliament today

Prime Minister Paul Martin will visit Gov. Gen. Michaelle Jean at 9:30 ET this morning to ask her to dissolve the government and call an immediate election, which is expected to trigger one of the longest campaigns in recent history.
Thanks to the combined vote of the united Opposition benches, a non-confidence motion against Martin’s minority Liberals was passed in a 171 to 133 vote, effectively bringing to an end the government that was voted into office just 17 months earlier.
