the liberals are classicly known for their giant promises without following through.. but this issue can easily save money and create revenue so it is kind of a no brainer. haven't heard anyone discuss timelines because it is massively complicated to execute

my guess is probably it will happen before the next election

^ Yep. Well... it hasn't happened yet, but he told Obama the day after the election when the President called him. Or in other words, he wouldn't tell the US that before even officially being the PM if he didn't mean it.

As for a timeline, who knows. Even if it doesn't happen soon, its clear that the political mandate, and therefore political will, has reached a critical mass.
