So soon?

Only weeks after the recent provincial election in La Belle Province comes this: Opposition to Quebec budget may trigger snap election. If so, then it seems to me that the new Lieutenant Governor might be within his constitutional authority to refuse dissolution of the National Assembly, either requesting Premier Jean Charest to negotiate further with the ADQ or the PQ, or summoning the leaders of the other two parties to see whether they might be able to form an alternative coalition government. Voters shouldn't have to go to the polls every few months, much less weeks. It's time for heads of minority governments at federal and provincial levels to recognize that they cannot continue to govern as if they had a majority.
