Have you ever watched the Olympics to find out who will win the silver medal in the different categories?
Neither do I.
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.
That’s going to be the big suspense.
As in the last novel by David Foenkinos (two number), which tells what happened to the young actor who could have been Harry Potter if Daniel Radcliffe had not shown up for the casting sessions.
A WEIRD VOTING MODE
Because the big winner of Monday evening, we already know who it is.
It’s Francois Legault.
Even if he had a bad three campaign and even if the polls say that his party is likely to attract only 37% of the vote.
Think about this: you can directly determine 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 if are not even moved) did not vote for you!
After that, we wonder why so many people are not going to vote…
“Why would 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 counts.
That it weighs in the balance and can make a difference.
Unfortunately, with our bizarre voting system, a political party can obtain 15% of the popular vote – which is very honorable – but if it ends up with zero MPs in the National Assembly.
What is your legitimacy as Prime Minister if more than six out of 10 Quebecers did not vote for you?
The question is valid.
Opponents of the mixed-mix say that splitting the vote would make it very difficult to elect a majority government, thus weakening Quebec’s position in its negotiations with Ottawa.
François Legault has led a large majority government for four years. Did Cell bring Ottawa to be more attentive to Quebec’s demands?
As PSPP recalled, Quebec made 21 requests to the federal government.
On one wiped 21 refusal.
And if 63% of voters refuse to vote for you, there must be a reason, right?
The composition of the National Assembly should declare this fact!
THE HAPPY SHIPWRECKED
On Wednesday, I said that a mandate from the CAQ is like going around the pontoon.
No waves, no nausea.
I don’t know what happened during that campaign, were there too many coolers in the hold? Still, the CAQ pontoon almost suffered the same fate as the Minnow SSGilligan’s boat that was supposed to take a three-hour mini-cruise, but ended up stranded on a desert island with the captain (Legault), the professor (Drainville), the millionaire (Fitzgibbon), Mary Ann (Guilbault) and Ginger (St-Hilaire).
No matter: the CAQ will win the same.
Because a pontoon, even without a compass, goes faster than four rowboats.
