It should be pointed out also that Harper used the Governor General to dissolve Parliament, in 2008, to avoid the investigation, by the Parliamentary Ethics and Access to Information Committee, into the in-and-out Conservative funding scheme in the 2006 election. Background from 2008 and the dissolution of the Ethics Committee because the Governor General dissolved Parliament and granted Harper an election Harper’s rationale for calling the election was that Parliament was dysfunctional

Will Canada now become known as the Second best “Democracy” that money can buy? ( A paraphrase Greg Palast's comment on the US system)
 
The purpose of having fixed election dates was to remove the unfairness inherent in the
provision, given to the Prime Minister, to select the election date
which used to always benefit the incumbent governing party. The ability to
change the election campaign period would also benefit, the incumbent party.
And for that reason this change would compromise the fairness of an
election.
