Guy Nantel on the ballot: “There are incongruities”


Monday's election had a very special flavor for Guy Nantel. The one who tried to steal the leadership of the Parti Québécois watched the counting of the votes carefully. According to him, the PQ and the Conservatives deserved a much better fate. 

On Sophie Durocher's show on QUB radio, the comedian pointed out that with 13% of the vote, Éric Duhaime's party should have had at least one deputy in Quebec City in November.


“We want to see these people in the National Assembly more than frustrated in the street. They deserve at least one seat,” he said.

Even though Paul St-Pierre Plamondon led an excellent campaign according to Mr. Nantel, he believes that he deserved a much better fate. Despite the 15% of the votes, only three deputies won a seat.

“They will only have one question per week,” lamented the former candidate for the leadership of the party.

He also points to the Liberal Party, which received only 7% of the province's Francophone vote. For him, this demonstrates the significant gap between Montreal and the rest of Quebec.

“When you weaken, you only have your base, and the base is the English speakers”, he analyzed.
