The real suspense is for the opposition

The real suspense is for the opposition


Have you ever watched the Olympics to find out who will win the silver medal in the different categories?

Me neither. 

< p>Yet that's what we're going to do on Monday.

We're going to look at the election results to find out who will come second. 

That's going to be it, the big suspense. 

As in the latest novel by David Foenkinos (Number two), which tells what happened to the young actor who could have been Harry Potter if Daniel Radcliffe had not shown up for the casting sessions.


Because the big winner of Monday evening, we already know who it is.

It's François Legault. 

Even though he had a very bad campaign and even though the polls say his party may only win 37% of the vote. 

Think about this: you can direct the destinies of Quebec for four years and pass laws that will have a profound impact on the daily lives of all citizens, even if 63% of Quebecers (and even more, if you count those who do not didn't even come) didn't vote for you!

After that, one wonders why so many people aren't going to vote…

“Why would I bother going to vote if the candidate and the party I support have no chance of winning in my constituency? »

We participate in the democratic process because we feel that our vote counts. 

That it weighs in the balance and can make a difference. 

Unfortunately, with our bizarre voting system, a political party can obtain 15% of the popular vote – which is very honorable – but end up with zero MPs in the National Assembly. 

What is your legitimacy as Prime Minister if more than six out of 10 Quebecers did not vote for you?

The question arises. 

Opponents of the mixed proportional system say that the fragmentation of the vote would make it very difficult to elect a majority government, thus weakening the position of Quebec in its negotiations with Ottawa.

It has been four years since François Legault leads a majority government. Has this led Ottawa to be more attentive to Quebec's requests?

As PSPP recalled, Quebec made 21 requests to the federal government.

We had 21 refusals. 

And if 63% of voters refuse to vote for you, there must be a reason, right?

The composition of the National Assembly should reflect this state of affairs! 


On Wednesday, I said that a mandate from the CAQ is like taking a pontoon ride.

No waves, no nausea.

I don't know what happened during this campaign, were there too many coolers in the hold? Still, the CAQ pontoon almost suffered the same fate as the S.S. Minnow, Gilligan's boat that was supposed to be on a three-hour mini-cruise, but ended up stranded on a desert island with the captain (Legault), the professor (Drainville), the millionaire (Fitzgibbon ), Mary Ann (Guilbault) and Ginger (St-Hilaire). 

Never mind: the CAQ will win the same. 

Because a pontoon, even without a compass , goes faster than four rowboats.
