Election in April

02.25.03

Looks like a springtime election. The news seems to be that us Quebecers will be going to the polls April 14th to decide whether we want a federalist, separatist, or closet-separatist-pretending-not-to-care government.

I’ve been accused of being extra hard on Mario Dumont and the ADQ. Actually, I think it’s the other way around. People in Quebec are so tired of the Liberal-PQ dichotomy, they see Dumont as a breath of fresh air. Thus, they’re being too easy on him, giving him a free pass every time he waffles on an issue or makes a ridiculous proposal. And thanks to much of the “soft nationalist” support going Dumont’s way instead of to the Liberals, it looks like we’re going to be in for another 5 long years of Bernard Landry.

*Sigh*.
