Quebec 1976 - end of an era, born of another


Recommended Posts

I was supper motivated to make this scenario ! With 2018 Quebec 1976 is the kind of an unique election in a generation which clearly modify the electoral balance (USA 2000 and USA 2016 are examples).

1976 is a mythic election in Quebec, it is the one who put the table for every scenarios I drafted untill 2018 and it is the end of a HUGE era for a great party which was the National Union (right-wing societal and fiscal conservative catholic party which dominated Quebec's politics since the 30's).

It is a very "shared election" in which everything can happen, historically it is the first time where the Parti Québécois formed the government with a clear majority of 71 MPs.

But it is an election where the dying National Union could still try to win.

I give a big THANKS to @Patine who saved old scenarios from a decade on his mails.

It's a scenario where you can win an old catholic blue conservative and nationalist  majority with the UN or a sovereignist with the PQ, or try to save the liberals. There is also STILL the famous and old creditist party

The two creditists parties are band of former Liberals MPs or even ministers who divided themselves on the national question. It is the final election of a rising new generation of people born in the 50's who massively vote for a change. Thus it is a really open election which many alternative outcomes.

Here is the synopsis

Quebec 1976 : PQ rise to power, Liberal crush, UN last attempt to conquer power


After the Libéral landslide of 1973, the Péquistes are now seriously challenging for power. It is a time of nationalist sentiment, where the survival of Québec's culture and the National Question are in every mind. On the political right, the parties are even more divided; The Ralliement créditiste have split with a new group, the Parti national populaire forming as a result. However, the Union Nationale are united and hoping for a revival of their fortunes.
