based on what I've learned in recent days about this, it seems Bill is right and that the GG really only has those two options legally. There is no legal precedence for proroguing Parliament WITHOUT doing one of the other two things as well.
Obviously Harper knows this, so I'm guessing he'll be looking at an election in the new year. And I'm sure that doesn't bother him at all. The Liberals seem to have forgotten one small piece of info in this whole mess - they just got crushed in an election and still have the same leader. The only thing that can possibly happen in another election is for Dion to lose even worse and drag down the Liberal party to historically low numbers. All in all, another waste of time and money - but isn't that politics....
