Alberta Diary: Thanks to a murderous nut, long gun registry will be Harper’s first post-PQ test – he will likely fail

The Happy Wanderer: Charest Will Win

I’m calling it right now. A Liberal minority government.

The Happy Wanderer: Charest Will Win

I’m calling it right now. A Liberal minority government. Polls show that the PQ is leading right now with the support of those alienated by Charest’s stance on education and their view of him being corrupt. But, I think that when time comes to vote, a significant portion of the PQ support will simply go with what they know best: the Liberals. They will reason that the tuition increases were not all that bad and that Charest didn’t do all too bad on corruption. Besides, the PQ wants a referendum and when time comes to actually take action and vote, they will not support the PQ.

And what about the CAQ? Why won’t Quebecers vote for Francois Legault’s party? Because, so far the party has not proven to be a serious choice. They seem like disorganised buffoons. Charest is just feeding off this. And so, Charest will win the same way Harper did: by making sure that only the Liberals seem in control of the situation while the other parties blow themselves up.

Charest had a field day with this, saying: “If I understand it correctly, François Legault will run the Twitter account and organize cocktail fundraisers, while Jacques Duchesneau will run the rest of the government.” Marois also pounced, accusing the CAQ of “improvisation” and calling them “amateurish.” In other words, not ready to govern.

Blunt Objects: PQ in Trouble Again While NDP Rides High

CROP has a new poll out in Quebec which is showing the horse race in la belle province is once again a three-way, with the Parti québécois feeling the brunt of a 6-point drop from their last poll:

Blunt Objects: What do Quebec and the GOP Primary Have in Common?

There seems to be a new frontrunner every week.

Well, maybe that’s not exactly what’s happening in Quebec, and no longer now with the GOP primary as conservative voters line up behind Rick “Don’t Go To College Kids” Santorum, but the situation is eerily similar.

Like Newt Gingrich or Rick Perry, the centre-right Coaliton . . . → Read More: Blunt Objects: What do Quebec and the GOP Primary Have in Common?
