The Bloc Québécois is back in 2008


Recommended Posts

I want to share the results of an extraordinary opinion polling of this morning, especially with @Patine and @admin_270

As you may know, Canada is in a hung parliament, that means that Trudeau might be pushed to call for general elections in the end of 2020 or by 2021.

The Bloc Québécois has been the main electoral force of Quebec through the 90's and the 2000's (around 40% of the vote in Québec and even 50,3% in 1993), but like the decline of the Parti Québécois and sovereignism, the Bloc has began to disappear progressively. The NDP of Jack Layton crushed Duceppe and switched Quebec orange with more than 60 neodemocrats in the province

In 2015 Trudeau won a majority of seats in Quebec, bringing a clear majority to the liberals in the province for the first time since the 70's and his own father (Pierre Elliot Trudeau)

In 2019 the Bloc Québécois known a wave of supports, coming from 18-19% and ending at 32% in Quebec, but Trudeau was still ahead.

This morning the last opinion pollings suggested that the Bloc Québécois would be back at pollings numbers which were not registered since almost a decade. And basically, to the approval that the Bloc Québécois did not get since 2008.

In a less and less sovereignist Quebec, this Bloquist rise is more than surprising, and could compromise Trudeau's wishes of a majority if he dissolves parliament.

Let Quebec be free :P

 

Quebec is free - and the most pampered Province in Canada that gets far more concessions than the rest. They really have more to lose than to gain by separating...

Like Scotland in the UK, the fear of separation means they'll get everything given to them. The SNP would effectively give Scotland a recession by separating but they love to put their fingers in their ears and go "La la la la". The UK economy and taxpayers from other parts of the country like me prop up their ridiculous spending and then we're told by the SNP that we don't give them enough lol, all while having a deficit 7x higher than the rest of the UK despite a tenth of the population. Their deficit and debt is worse than Greece and Spain was at its peak recession, that is how bad it is and then in 2014, the SNP actually said they subsidized us lol.

I say let Quebec separate if they want like how Scotland wants to separate. They can face the repercussions if they want.

Just to confirm another poll showed that the Charity scandal around Trudeau killed his election mob

https://leger360.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Legers-Weekly-Survey-August-3rd-2020.pdf

In Quebec the Bloc seems well to be ahead 33% to 27% for the LPC.

More generally to show you the impact of the scandal at the national level

I expect Trudeau to delay elections to spring

Still, the Bloc Quebecois has always struck me as a "ransom and extortion of favourable circumstances and concessions for Quebec over other Provinces by threatening Separation," Party than a true, died-in-the-wool Separatist Party with real conviction from the view over here in the West. Although appearances may be deceiving, yes, this is just how it looks IN PRACTICE. :P

Well every Bloquists do not agree on what the Bloc should be

Lucien Bouchard does no longer back the Bloc (while he is unclear on the provincial politic, he is the spiritual father of the Premier Legault but also funded the campaign of a Pequist candidate to current leadership).

The point of Lucien is that the Bloc should only have served for 1 election, the one of 1993.

Then, why the Bloc has continued to remain a major political force in Quebec?

Only because the others parties have not been convincing enough.

The main problem I have with anglos outside Quebec is that, very often, the pequists ans sovereignists are suspected of willing to cut english services (they never did) while the Premier of Ontario Doug Ford actually did it with the francophone minority of Ontario.

And the francophone minority outside Quebec is surely the most threatened. Judges are their best protectors very often.
