Quebec Election

September 5, 2012   ·   0 Comments

I am not convinced that the result of the Quebec election means anything. Fundamentally almost 70% of the Province did not want the PQ and if Jean Charest had held on to his seat and one other liberal had one – it would have been a Liberal parliament.

Politics is personality and that was Charest, well past his sell by date. With a new leader I think it will be hard for the PQ to do anything – and certainly nothing drastic like tax hikes or referendums. Remember they only have 3 more seats than they had in the last election – hardly a ringing endorsement.

For the Liberals to do as well as they did in the face of their unpopularity is quite incredible. Imagine what a new leader will do?

†As always – I don’t endorse any candidates.
