Dividing cannas rhizomes?

I read the article here about overwintering cannas. However, can you tell me when is the best time to divide cannas rhizomes. I am finding conflicting information on the internet. Someone says it's best to do it in the spring so the soil organisms don't infect the bulbs. Others say to divide as soon as possible. Who's right? Thanks. - Danny -
