ELECTION REACTION- SOUND OFF

HERE'S YOU CHANCE TO SOUND OFF ON THE ELECTION IN REAL TIME! (Don't forget to refresh every few minutes!)

275 comments:

  1. Whatever the outcome, this is going to be fun.

    Given that I will be a full-time resident of Toronto in two weeks, I'll be leaving this blog after tonight. I refuse to let this bother me anymore.

    Whether you're an anglo or franco, I sincerely hope you readers get a decent government in place, I really do.

    So until the end of this evening, let's rock folks!

    1. Harvey: Toronto welcomes you with open arms! Congratulations on a very wise decision. Actually, you're not completely out of the woods. Do keep in mind that Ontario is still the largest net contributor to the equalization payments, and Quebec gets half the money. Please don't be complacent and do keep in touch with this blog.

  2. First of all, a few months ago, I claimed that the PQ would suffer the same fate as the Bloc in the next election. Before this even starts, I have to admit now that I was obviously wrong.

    That being said, who's ready for another decade of PQ rule?
    Are you Ontario folks ready for the boost to your economy? You better thank all the PQ voters!

  3. I left Quebec earlier this year but despite that I am very afraqid of the outcome of the election. When I first moved to Quebec it was the anglophone community that truly embraced me and made me feel welcome. It hurts me to see the rights of my friends being destroyed. It hurts me that I had to leave the province because I felt discriminated and even though I learned to speak French and made efforts to integrate myself fully into the Quebec society I could never be one of them. Sad to see that politicians are feeding people with hate that is only promoting more and more instances like that video we saw yesterday of the anglophone guys getting yelled at for not speaking french.

    1. PBoy, unfortunately that's not going to end with the election of a PQ government, albeit a minority government. Let's see what happens in coming days. I have a feeling Marois is going to make every effort to appeal to the more ardent separatists of the CAQ with cabinet positions if they cross the floor, at least enough of them to put her over the top.

      A minority is better than a majority, but that's all. It's going to be very expensive, just like minority governments usually are, so just add it to the almost $253 billion debt load the debt clock is currently showing.

    5. I must confess I was a bit jumpy too at the early going for I prefer a minority PQ to a majority, but at least it would give a last chance to get the poison out and hopefully getting it off one's chest sometimes helps. Then again, this is Quebec, and that vitriolic video on the Sept 3rd blog was particularly disturbing. Again, though, you can see the antagonist had a big mug of beer in his hands, and only God knows how many mugs he swilled prior to that video.

      Anyway, feel better people...for the moment. Now we'll be able to see just how skillful she really is this Pauline Marois and her 30 years in public life. I don't think she has anywhere near the prowess of Goldilocks, but with him off the scene, it renders the PLQ as more impotent that they would be had he won his seat.

    11. @WA, homophobia is not a phenomenon unique to QC. And if anything, it's the PQ that seems to be most open-minded on this front, openly courting the homosexual vote (PQ politicians always march in these silly gay parades).

      However, this might also be a cynical ploy. The over-tolerance on the gay front could be a way of compensating for intolerance on other fronts (like language). It's hard to tell.

    I have a WordPress account, so I can still post if the Editor shifts his blog.

    Look, I don't know that much about Quebec politics, so I'll just ask a simple question. Harper began his tenure as Prime Minister with a minority government, but during the next election he won a minority. If Pauline Marois ends up premier of Quebec with a minority government, how likely is it that she and the PQ would be able to do the same thing?

    ReplyDelete
  39. We're not quite done yet, but the only surprise tonight is the Liberals managed to take second place as official opposition. I honestly thought they'd be completely wiped off the map.

    So, it's likely going to be a Parti Quebecois minority, just a few seats short of majority. Question is, will members of the CAQ or QS jump ship back over to the PQ to give them a majority? Or the CAQ and the PLQ form a coalition government?

    4. Here is a comment in today's Globe and Mail:

      My Canada includes the north, half of Montreal, the Outawais, and the southern townships.. If Canada is divisible so is Quebec. There is zero argument against the partition of Quebec. What's left of Quebec can PLEASE leave! Canada would be so much better off. We would quickly form some of common trade arrangement with Quebec (Canada-lite). We would have NONE of the crazy transfer payment (a savings of billions). About a fifth of our national debt would disappear (as it is percapita and not based on the size of the territory Quebec leaves with). We would just have to build a highway around the rump of Quebec (one in the north to Labrador and one through the southern townships). Canada would wind up looking like a gigantic letter "C" (how appropriate). Kick the disloyal parts of Quebec out, keep the rest. They are a joke. Welfare bums all of them. This time it's different. No one in Canada cares if Quebec leaves. They will also LOVE Harper the more he stands up to this blackmail. Talk to anyone outside of downtown Toronto. They LOVE it when the feds give Quebec tough love. Harper is the real originator of the Clarity Act (aka Reform's Plan "B" which sent urban Toronto into hysterics of fear until it worked!). But Harper is a champion of greater provincial power and less federal meddling. He would probably have no problem with all provinces (including Quebec) having greater autonomy. Marois will be pushing Harper to do something which he has always wanted to do...loosen the ties of confederation (and why not). All this means is that Ontario is going to lose more and more power as Canada decentralizes. As long as Harper cuts the transfer payments dollar for dollar with areas of responsibility Quebec assumes...it's a win win.. Personally if there was a way to provoke this economic basket case into leaving Canada I'd be happy. They are like Greece...lazy...and ungrateful... Kick them out.. They'll be begging for help soon enough. We should offer then ZERO when that time comes. They will become this broke backwater. And one last thing... Just because they become a country doesn't mean they get to treat Anglos like crap. Free of the blackmail we can reassert our rights to speak English in Quebec. The feds can stop spending $4 billion on transfer payments and start spending it on bolstering the English language community and culture in Quebec. All of North America speaks English. Quebec is a pathetic joke..

      Delete
    5. First of all, not all of North America speaks English. Only the majority. You're forgetting Haiti, Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, the French departments in the Carribean, the Dutch departments in the Carribean, Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama and St. Pierre & Miquelon. Those are a lot of people. The Quebec partition movement shouldn't be about separating the English parts of Quebec from the French ones. If we want to do that, how are we any better than the separatists? We should want a bilingual province where people are free to speak their language, whether it's English or French or Klingon. I don't care if the province is French majority, I couldn't care less. Most French Canadians couldn't care less if they lived in an English majority area as well. I wouldn't judge people by their language to the same extent as I wouldn't want to be judged by my language myself.

    6. FROM ED BROWN
      EDM Who cares what they speak in Haiti Cuba or anywhere else. When we speak of North America we're actually addressing Canada and the U.S. That's where the economy that affects us is.
      They all speak English. You want a province where people are free to speak their language. So do we. That's what the partition is all about. Stop seeing the Province through rose coloured glasses. Our language is not free. Where have you been.

      Delete
    7. Sorry, Ed. I suppose I misinterpreted what you said. I must admit I sort of skimmed through it the first time I read it. Reading over it again, I can see where you're going. The language restrictions have got to go, and we're on the same page there. If they are not taken away, Quebec will remain as economically restricted as it is lingually restricted. Bill 101 is one of the primary causes of Quebec's economical decline in the latter half of the 20th century. Now I understand what you were saying. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

  46. A friend actually pointed out that the PQ and the Republicans have a lot in common: an exclusionary ideology that they're willing to sell out their fellow countrymen to be able to implement. Sad, really. I hope the US fares better in November.

    As a point of inquiry (c'mon, I know Canadians like educating ignorant Americans), can anyone explain to me why ridings in Canada do not have to have equal numbers of residents? Part of why the PQ has the representation it has is that electoral weight is hugely skewed toward "the regions." Back in the States, this would be grounds for a high-profile civil rights lawsuit. Under the US Constitution, districts have to be redrawn after every census. This seems like Democracy 101 to me.

    On a separate note, anyone want to buy a condo in the Plateau? ;-)

      I have been following both the US and QC races, and I realized at one point that I've been applying the same word to the Republican Party and the PQ. That word is "insane". Both the Republicans and the PQ are more like a religious cult than a political movement at this point.

    Will he coalesce with the Libs or with Marois. She is perfectly happy with a minority government. All she really cares about is being Premier. Walking out in front of the press. The woman has an ego like Rambo. She smiles in the limelight and that's all she really wanted. Ed

  55. There are still 3 seats even at this time for the PQ to lose 1 St Francois in the south eastern part of the eastern townships, papineau in western Quebec (both to libs) and Johnson to the CAQ.

  56. Well in effect, the right side won. The PQ is forming a lameduck government and won't be able to push any of it's retarded laws through.

    Sorry S.R...maybe some other time. ;-)

  57. Bad night for the ROC. I would have welcomed Marios telling Harper how things are to be done. Guess we will have to wait for a better time to get rid of Quebec...Shit.

  58. PQ down to 55 vs PLQ 49, less than 1% lead in popular vote. (31.99% vs 31.01%)

    ReplyDelete
  59. 55-49 PQ/PLQ... suck on that, S.R!

    Hahahahahhhhaaahahhaaa :-)

    ReplyDelete
  60. I should be mad but I'm actually happy. PQ is toast. After all this they have 6 or 7 seats in front of Libs. And not to think that she was voted not for her ideas but for a change...

    It will be limbo until next spring but a sweet one. If Charest and Legault will play smart we will see Marois from behind.

    Again so sorry for S.R...really sorry.

    I will continue to work in an anglophone environment, no need for french keyboards :-) :-) :-)...

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart that you've showed me that the hope is not lost in Quebec. Thank you that you proved the polls were wrong !!!!

  61. I wonder if the PQ will now start internal squabbling. Marois is going to be on thin ice in the Parti Quebecois itself. I wonder how long before the PQ rank and file call for her turfing.

    She went all radical with her Quebec citizenship requirements and it still didn't work.

  62. And btw, I cannot follow her speach...she's incoherent !!!

  63. The winner - debatable. Depends how you look at it. The loser - uncontested: Leger Marketing.

    "The people who invest all this money in polling are not doing it for nothing. They are not doing it just to find out what people think. They’re doing it to try to influence what people think. Who would spend all that money just to find out what was going on? They want to be able to predict it, and therefore to mold it. So it’s an intervention in the political process." - Christopher Hitchens (1992)

    1. Leger's numbers are close to CROP's and FORUM. All of theme pegged the PQ and CAQ about right, but polled the PLQ lower and the QS higher than what happened.

  64. I found it cheap that the QS already gave their support to Marois...Doesn't it feel like it did not matter that the people that gave the QS those 2 seats did Not vote for the PQ?

  65. It seems that someone just tried to attack Marois...

  66. According to the feed on the Radio-Canada elections site, the gunman is alleged to have mumbled: "Anglos wake up" or words to that effect. Do I see an imminent collision of shit and fan?

  67. The new DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED prime minister has not even finished her victory speech that an anglo tries to set fire to an entire building with thousands of people inside and is seen carrying a rifle.

    Funny how all you anglos on this blog are quick to call the québécois a hateful, racist bunch....

    ''Les anglais sont arrivés'' well les anglais vont partir aussi !

    1. Les anglais se réveillent (the anglos are waking up) you say ? Well, you just wait until the french wake up.

      @Calgarian in Montreal:

      I Hope you are right. I hope the shit hits the fan, and I hope it hits it BIG TIME. There needs to be radical change in this province, and maybe a crazy anglo tryign to set fire to an auditorium filled with thousands of seppies is the spark that was needed !

    2. Good grief J.Tremblay, I dislike every ounce of that woman, but it does not mean that I would support harming her. Please do not make the mistake to put us all in the same bag, just as I do the same with the francophones...

    Jose, I wouldn't even try because with my old eyesight I'd miss and blow off my toes. It must be some guy knocking off some beers wwayching the election and was overcome with disappointment. He should have stayed home and had another beer. We don't need that. Ed

      Get your head out of your ass. This was carefully planned and orchestrated. You dont just decide after three beers to head on over to Métropolis, shoot two people and set fire to the place. This was not a spur of the moment thing.

    2. Well, except the guy was wearing his bathrobe...

  73. @ED : If you still linked the FLQ to the PQ, 30+ years later, we will link this incident to the anti-franco sentiment for a very long time.

    3. Oh brother..now are all the radical francos going to jump over this as proof that anglos are all violent and dangerous. Thats the same as saying that all francophones are racist because of the youtube video that has been making the rounds with the the drunk guy.
      This guy is likely a mental case who again does not representative the anglo community at all..but I suspect the PQ will try to get everyone thinking about how dangerous we anglos are..give me a break..

    What we need now is Charest to approach Legault for a coalition. If he waits she will find a way to pick up the other three votes that she needs. Some of Legaults people are his old PQ cronies who might be convinced to cross the floor for the right price.

    Marquez, These peoploe were never properly punished. They came back when the PQ was in power so they could get off light. What's 30 years? well to the family of Pierre Laporte it's like yesterday because he's still dead. All for the French language.
    By7 the way insults like get your head out of your ass are out of place on this site. Save that stuff for Craigslist RANTS AND RAVES where the lowlifes use it. Ed
