His mistake was not keeping Bellemare in reserve as a star candidate. Lord knows our Quebec team is weak.



Oh, look, if he wants to do lose en election again, no problem.
I remember you than he was heavily defeated both times when he ran for Quebec mayorship.

Eh, hopefully Bernier's probation will be over by next election. Paradis is OK but no one outside his native region knows who he is.

More on Rae's Quebec tour.

Whistling through the graveyard indeed. This is the first Hebert column this year I agree with wholeheartedly.

Whoever did it should be fired and if necessary, prosecuted.

I want whatever she's smoking. If Charest really wants to run on a "more federalist than Trudeau" (he of recent "bogeyman" fame) platform... yeah. On the flip side, he can't really go much lower than 18% among Francophones. A Machiavellian strategy to boost the CAQ's vote at the PQ's expense has at least as much a chance of backfiring as succeeding. So far Marois has been able to keep away from that issue, and if Charest wants to play it safe he should also. I honestly don't know what's going on with Hebert these days- she used to be so sensible but nowadays comes out with 90% chaff, 10% wheat.

http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/politics/article/1136389--hebert-resurgent-parti-quebecois-may-help-jean-charest-s-liberals

Paul Wells' print column mentions how Topp would be the best Dipper choice because he "knows the country better", was Layton's best strategist and strategized against Harper on innumerable occasions. No mention of never serving in elective office or being disliked by the NDP base. The second half mentioned how the Tories are the Resource Economy Party, Dippers Manufacturing Economy Party and Grits "Creative Economy" (WTF is that?) Party- and that the former is where votes are. Grits can retool to be the "Service Sector Party", esp. since their economic guru is a Bay Street alum.

There's also a Trudeau interview in there- nothing particularly new.

Which party controls the ridings which were affected by robocalling? Could Conservatives lose their majority?

I'd be surprised if any Torie were to be removed. Most likely, they'll just receive a slap on the wrist and a small fine. This isn't their first voter fraud allegation.

Oh, and Rae told the House that a Liberal staffer was behind Vikileaks, then apologized to Toews.

I bet that staffer will be on the Liberal Party Strategy Team in, say, three months.

I'm glad it won't be before or during the leadership convention.

This is the worst week we've had since the coalition crisis 4 years ago. Hopefully the budget clears the air a bit.

Tories are having awful damege control.
Today, they said than the fraudulous calls were from Liberals, not them.

A bit hard to believe.

Yes, but it's not implausible that two or three thumping by-election losses will rattle the CPC caucus' confidence in Harper's leadership style, which could lead to the first serious leadership crisis he has faced.

Typical of the Unique Conservative Party. You dare to say the truth about their neopotism, you are sued.
