Escalation

The opposition presented Harper with the nuclear option -- the fall of his government.

Is it conceivable that Harper could respond with a nuclear option of his own -- removing Governor-General Michaelle Jean, and replacing her with a loyalist of his own?

Rumour has it Jean will demand a meeting with Harper tomorrow afternoon, almost immediately after she lands.

I really doubt it. If he did, that would look so bad that I doubt he'd ever survive another confidence vote again, let alone another election.
