Martin sets January 23 election

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Prime Minister Paul Martin sent Canadians to the polls for a January 23 election on Tuesday, after the opposition brought his minority Liberal government down the night before in a confidence vote.

Martin announced the date after informing Governor-General Michaelle Jean, representative of head of state Queen Elizabeth, that he had lost the confidence of Parliament.

The Liberals were reduced to a minority in the June 2004 election. Martin has been weakened by judicial findings of a Liberal kickback scheme but still leads the Conservatives in popular support.

Now you politicians have to work over the holidays

I guess the election date is fine with me. It is far enough away from Christmas and New Years.
