500channelsurfer Posted August 16, 2022 Report Share Posted August 16, 2022 There is going to be a 2022 provincial election in Quebec. Some of you will not care but the some of us that do care do not need that comment. The political parties running are all a bit of a disappointment. The CAQ is going to run on its reputation of pulling through the pandemic even though it did not do much better than most other jurisdictions and has recently been throwing pre-election goodies around such as direct subsidies to drivers' license fees and electric bills. The Quebec Liberals are now headed by an ex-CAQ high-up who has not been very inspiring and flip-flopping for votes. Québec Solidaire and the Parti Québecois might be competing against each other for the most sovereigntist votes but that does not matter very much anymore because even that combined vote would not result in a large breakthrough. The Conservative Party of Quebec on the other hand seems to have a chance at garnering enough support from disenfranchised and far-right voters to make an impact with a few seats up from non-existence. In a way this feels like a return to the Maurice Duplessis era. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
