The real suspense is for the opposition

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

Me niether.

But that’s what we’re going to do on Monday.

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

This will be the great suspense.

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

A STRANGE VOTING MODE

Because the big winner on Monday night, we already know who he is.

It’s Francois Legalault.

Even if he did a bad election campaign and even if the polls say that his party is likely to attract only 37% of the votes.

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. they didn’t even come) I didn’t vote for you!

After that, we wonder why so many people won’t vote …

“Why should 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 matters.

That weighs on the scales and can make a difference.

Unfortunately, with our bizarre voting system, a political party can get 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 have not voted for you?

The question is valid.

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

François Legault led a government with a large majority for four years. Has this led Ottawa to be more attentive to Quebec’s demands?

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

We had 21 rejections.

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 fact!

THE HAPPY WRECKED SHIP

I said Wednesday that a CAQ warrant is like going around the pontoon.

No waves, no nausea.

I don’t know what happened during that campaign, there were too many chillers in the hold? However, the CAQ pontoon almost suffered the same fate as the SS MinnowGilligan’s boat that was supposed to take a three-hour mini-cruise, but ended up on a desert island with the captain (Legault), the professor (Drainville), the millionaire (Fitzgibbon), Mary Ann (Guilbault) and Ginger (St-Hilaire).

It doesn’t matter: the CAQ will win anyway.

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