With last nights split in the Quebec by-elections, I wonder what message the electorate is sending the government and perhaps by extension the country?
With the PQ win in a usually safe federal seat, were voters using the by-election as a safe time to send the Charest government a message or is full scale change happening which will lead to another full on unity debate as pompous windbag Pauline Marios seems to think?
With the world economy once again on edge , can Quebec and Canada afford to have that discussion now?
Can Quebec afford to have that discussion no matter the shape of our economy given it relies so much on Federal government assistance ? ( You thought I was going to say because they are a bunch of freeloaders living off the country and whining whenever seat redistribution or senate reform comes up for discussion?)
I would suspect that common sense will eventually prevail and even if the government turns over Quebec will vote to stay in Canada.
If however, we have a referendum and the polls look like we are headed for separation we can always make a robocall or two to Jacque Parizeau”s friends.
You know, his friends named Money and the Ethnic vote!
What do you think?
