Peladeau has been appointed Hydro-Quebec chair. Who's next, a Desmarais? Won't help Marois on her left.

JT will meet Couillard and Legault tomorrow, didn't succeed in scheduling a meeting with Marois. Not supporting anyone in BC.

Rae to Foreign Affairs (I got that one right), Garneau to Natural Resources, Murray to Asia, Hsu to PSE.

Here's the link. Official story is that he asked and she offered, but perhaps a way to detente with Quebec Inc, which isn't terribly happy with Marois to begin with.

FTR, I got to meet Michael Sona (aka Pierre Poutine) tonight. He is sticking by his innocence.

Still 3 more years.

Re Peladeau: Even Marois' staunchest press supporter, Le Devoir, isn't happy about it.

Remember this when it happens.

I predict a mass exodus of NDP MPs from Quebec to the Liberals under Trudeau, knowing they will not be able to win reelection as NDP candidates in Quebec.

Mark my words.

Not a chance.  The Liberals face serious problems in francophone Quebec which goes far deeper than party leadership.

It's a 3 way race in QC right now. It wouldn't take a lot to make seats change hands.

Hatman knows Sona through someone else IIRC.

QC: Getting to 2004 levels, 20-odd seats in their usual hotspots, seems a realistic target for the Pelciquistes. But yeah, Winfield's post is absurd.

One thing I'm eager to see is the Cabinet shuffle, whenever it comes. I'm underexpecting and hoping for overfulfillment. Someone will have to permanently replace Penashue when his loss is confirmed next month. We'll see if for once Harper brings in new blood.

Liberals are still dead in rural Francophone Quebec and Trudeau isn't a good candidate for those nationalist areas.

It's Winfield. He probably thinks Mitt Romney would sweep Quebec.

On another note, Mike Duffy repaid his housing expenses last month.

MaxQue, what's your guess to how the Quebec vote will split?

No, currently, since I'm waiting to see if the Liberal bounce is a permanent one, or just a "we have a new leader" one.

Not really. He's a pretty cool guy actually. Of course, him and our mutual friend hate the Tories now. Not sure where Sona will park his vote, but our mutual friend (who is a very traditionalist conservative) is a Trudeau backer now.

What I found interesting is, according to Sona, the Tory database is very restricted, only a few people on each campaign have access.  The NDP meanwhile lets any seasoned volunteer have access. Anyways, Sona did not even have access to the Tory database.

Speaking as a traditionalist conservative, why would a traditionalist conservative ever vote for Trudeau? Wanting to establish a Canadian monarchy?

I'm aware of the database rules. I only got database access in 2011 after working on campaigns in 06 and 08. I was told the restrictions were to prevent "over enthusiastic volunteers" from pulling any crap. Shows how well that worked out Roll Eyes

Why not? With his looks, preference for a life in leisure and talent for uttering platitudes he would be much better suited as King than as Prime Minister.

Well, he's pretty pro monarchy, and wants to bring back the red ensign. I think you two might get along well.

The key NDP demands aren't in Sousa's budget speech. Election time.
