Separation movement dying as Quebec leaves Bloc for NDP

A couple of stunning polls have put the NDP 1st in Quebec which would decimate the Bloc if these numbers were to hold up on election day.

I would gladly see any seats from the Bloc move to the NDP as not only would this help rid the country of the leech-like Separatists, it would help the Conservative movement in Quebec. Although I’m far from being a Quebec political expert, I can’t see any of the NDP gains coming from Con support and if anything, it may allow Con candidates to come up the middle in some ridings.

Regardless, this is great news for Canada as it looks like many Quebec Lefties have decided that they prefer their socialism without the added separatism.

    This all makes me wonder what it is the NDP is promising Quebecers to pull them over to the NDP.

    Is that Duceppe’s pic?

    Duceppe’s picture above corroborates his Rock & Roll look and perhaps desire as the following link will indicate.

    Jack Layton is doing well in Quebec because he sold out the rest of Canada. He has been promising that federally regulated Quebec corporations (and I guess the federal government) will not have to be bilingual – that French is only Official language that will be used.

    So let’s look at Stats Canada:

    in Quebec: English that is spoken at home is about 10%;
    in Ontario: French that is spoken at home is about 2.5%;

    So will Jack Layton allow the federally regulated Ontarian corporations (and the federal government) will not have to be bilingual – that English is only Offical language that will be used?

    How about Saskachewan? How about Newfoundland and Labrador? How about British Columbia?

    Listen to Jack Layton’s press conference from this morning. And of course the media NEVER asked Jack Layton if his stance would be applicable to Canada’s other provinces!

    It is a pity that media is not questions that would matter to us.

    This needs to be out there – people need to know!

      When the rest of Canada realizes he’s siding with Bill 101 in Québec to gain this traction; he’d better promise the end of bilingualism in the ROC or his numbers could tank, especially in the West.

    It looks like O’Malley is in scandal mode and her head is going to explode at any minute, just read her tweets as proof. She must know that the Libs are sifting over to the NDP.

    It is the Coalition. IMO, Quebecers see that the route to more concessions drives through the Coalition. They also know, thanks to Stephen Harper, the Bloq will not be included in any Coalition. If this NDP support holds, the door is open for the Conservatives to scoop up the free market votes in Quebec (are there any?). Further it can lead to the NDP supplanting the Liberals across Canada or at least a merger of the two.

    Stephen Harper’s vision of a two party (one left, one right) system ruling Canada is one step closer today.

    Allow me take this, perhaps one step too far; someday they will be building statues, naming airports and schools after this guy (Harper).

      “scoop up the free market votes in Quebec (are there any?)”

      Me, for one:)

      And as “Katie” states, his support is up because he is selling out the ROC by siding with language hard liners.

  7. Stan Says:

    From the actions of the CBC in the last two days the liberal internal polls must be abysmal.

    Some of the rats are jumping ship while others are in full panic mode.
