Québec Solidaire ftw!

They'd be nice if they were relevant. But only one labor candidate has beenn elected in Quebec in the past 70 years or so.
Actually... so many of their candidates are presumably going to be paper candidates or marxist nutters etc that the opposite is true - they're nice as long as they aren't relevant anyhow.
I would very likely vote for them - there might be some contests that might sufficiently interest me to get me to vote tactical, but not many - but it#d be more of a protest vote than anything else.

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

About 70% of Quebecois disapprove of the election call at this date, as do both ADQ and the PQ (FWIW).

Why would the PQ oppose it? Or is it just a political position?

Because there is a major financial crisis that merits government attention.

Scott McKay, former leader of the Greenies, is the PQ candidate in L'Assomption. Apparently his ego was crushed when he lost the leadership. Poor thing.

It was PQ held until it went ADQ in 2007. But apparently his nomination isn't meeting with universal joy in the local PQ.

I also think a candidate with the name "Scott McKay" doesn't help much in a constituency that is 1.5% English.

I'm sure than Westmount's inhabitants were very happy to have a PQ MNA. For Scott McKay, the problem is not his party change since before to be a Greenie, he was for PQ. He tried to be the Pointe-aux-Trembles candidate in 1998. The problem is than the executive of the provincial party rejected the candidature of the other person who wanted to be the candidate. Jean-Claude Saint-André, is the ex-MNA from this riding. He lost in 2007. The party rejected his candidature because he didn't agree with the project of waiting for another referendum and he refused to take a pledge than he will not loan money for his campaign.

Yes. Apparently the PQ bigwigs told him not to show up at the nomination meeting, since "there would be blood".

The leaders' debate is in danger.

Liberals don't want to negociate the structure and the moderator.

Charest hates democracy.

Charest would prefer an election today without any campaigning.

Mario Dumont is now back to proposing frivolous sh**t again since he knows he won't win. Semi-privatization of HydroQuebec, healthcare, and more crap (plus his whole autonomy/constitution crap).

Meh. Since the 2007 election, enough evidence has emerged to suggest to me that the sole reason for the ADQ's surge in 2007 was homophobia. Not happening this time around, so things go back to normal, and the ADQ is marginal. Of course, it hasn't helped them that they've been totally incompetent as the OO.

Personally, I think immigration was just an excuse for a lot of people.
