All our QC incumbents win on personal votes anyways, though it'd be nice to regain some seats in Quebec City. Otherwise a Dipper-Grit battle. Far removed from the heady days of pre-gala '08, if in retrospect that was probably unsustainable.

It would be a weird map. I guess the Liberals are ahead in their traditional areas, (along the US border, Western Quebec), while the NDP is strong in the heartland, some sovereigntist areas.

One thing's for sure: Quebec will be crucial to Liberal hopes for Stornoway in 2015.

Same statement applies to Sussex too for that matter, since Ontario alone won't cut it for them. On another note, Marois again ruled out a fall election at a U de M appearance this afternoon. Still sticking to my prediction of another PQ minority.

Wouldn't Mégantic-L'Érable be in danger?

Maybe, but not like Paradis would be much of a loss anyways.

On a different note, is anyone surprised that the new PBO is reportedly tame?

Paradis won his seat by 23% and the Liberals only managed 5%. The swings will work in his favour. Of course, if there's a disproportionate swing against the Tories due to Lac Megantic or the boundaries are changed, anything is possible.

308 crunches the Leger provincial numbers as 61 PQ, 57 PLQ, 5 CAQ (LOL) and 2 QS. I for one would be happy for a return to essentially 2-party politics.

Says someone who wouldn't vote for any of them Tongue

Unless you support the PLQ now? I for one have put my tactical support behind the PLQ over the PQ now that Charest is gone and Marois has turned out to be a huge racist.

My ranked support of Quebec parties is now:

1) UCQ
2) PVQ
3) QS
4) CAQ
5) PLQ
6) ON
7) PQ

Any type of movement below the #3 spot is highly possible.

CAQ is cursed with a similar vote distribution to the bloc Quebecois.

I vaguely recall Dave saying that he prefers fewer threads with more posts, because the site runs faster that way? I think Inks then merged some threads in FC.
No, he said he preferred threads not to cross a certain size, so Inks closed some threads in FC and created successor threads.

One Quebec teachers' union would prefer defunding parochial schools.

The phrase "parochial schools" implies that this funding is a bit more extensive than funding Catholic schools like in Ontario. Is that true?

Meanwhile, in more lol-worthy polls:

Liberals: 42
NDP: 32
PC: 23

Guess what province?

PEI!: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/prince-edward-island/story/2013/09/04/pei-cra-poll-ndp-liberals-584.html

Federally? NOPE! Provincially!

Nah, it applies to all private and independent schools. They get 40% of the per-capita grant given to public schools. Here's the criteria if you want a look.

Hatman: Joining NL. Wonder what's driving the Dipper surge out East.

Forgot to post this way back, but Fraser school rankings were released this summer. Unsurprisingly, here in Quebec Brébeuf leads the pack as usual. Cool

No idea, especially with Trudeau's popularity out here. People aren't exactly salivating over Dexter either. It's puzzling.

Here's a very long PKP profile, courtesy of Maclean's.

New Nanos out: 36 Liberal, 30 Tory, 25 Dipper. Economy is tops at 35% with corruption/Senate second at 17% and healthcare at 12%.

May apparently intends to lead the Greens till she's 80. LOL.

More from Nanos: Trudeau is considered the least competent leader.

Gagnon on how even France isn't purely laïque.

Different types of laïcité. As Hébert hints in today's column, this is really aimed at the ROQ conservatives. PLQ and CAQ are more in the open category.

Don't the Greens have leadership elections every 2 years? Or did E-May drop those?

As I expected, CRA did polls of all the Atlantic provinces.  And they're all pretty lol worthy. Except NS Sad

NB:

Lib: 47
NDP: 24
PC: 23

NL:
Lib: 41
NDP: 33
PC: 26

Strange how Trudeaumania is helping the provincial Liberals. And yet, the NDP remains strong. Where are the Tory voters going?
