Glad to have our friends in Quebec reinforce the desire to work within the federation of Canada. We are all stronger and richer as part of one nation.
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montre...e-pq-1.2601757The easiest explanation for the Liberals sweep is that they won by default.
The now accepted view is that the PQ campaign foundered the moment Marois lost the reigns of the referendum issue to Pierre-Karl Péladeau’s nationalist fist-pumping. The media baron, a controversial addition because of his labour politics, among other things, provoked a schism within the PQ, and put the sovereignty question front and centre, not what Marois wanted.
I am pleased that the PQ did hang on to 30 seats, though...they are part of the balance and conscience that the province needs... and have, in the past, proven to be capable in governing.
The reality though, is that demographics are finally against the separatistes. There are too many younger, more cosmopolitan voters and too many people who have come to Quebec to be part of french Canada, not as citizens in an experiment in independence.
