Big win for the Liberals.

 

The big mistake the separatist party made?  They recruited a high-profile business guy, and he stated emphatically that he wanted them to separate.  

 

Strange politics here.

Their power is in threatening to separate. To secede is not what the leaders of the Bloc/Parti Q actually want.

The worldwide backlash over the secular charter of rights didn't help either. Even though there are many people in Quebec who support that charter, I think the backlash may have made some people take a step back.

IMO Quebec used the separation threat as a bargaining chip for many years. For many years Canada gave in, and tried to buy Quebec's loyalty.

 

Sometime in the last few years, Canadians decided enough is enough. During this election the support for Quebec independence was higher in the rest of Canada than it was in Quebec. There will be no more concessions or windfalls for Quebec from Canada. I think this signals that Quebecers can and want to be an equal player in Canada like the rest of the provinces, but I think the separation bargaining chip is worthless now.

 

The separatists are getting old. The young people and immigrants want nothing to do with Quebec independence. The movement is dying.

Yes. Marois' charter was disgusting and an embarrassment to Canadians.

 

I'm happy that racist bigot was sent home with her tail between her legs. Thankfully she even lost her own seat and won't even have a place in the provincial legislature.

Yeah, she was an embarrassment. I'm proud of Quebecers doing the right thing and dumper her out of power.

Did you see this? BQ no longer has official party status? First election since 1966 won by a party other than the Liberals or PQ. Crazy.

Oh, right, PQ. I don't really follow Quebec politics and find the plethora of provincial parties perplexing.

Yup, its been on the wane even when Rene was still leading the movement. It'll be fascinating to see how this hard Right turn manifests itself not only within Quebec but in terms of relations with Junior's federal Liberals. Tres interressant....!
