CFN – Tuesday the future of Canada will most likely be decided with the Province of Quebec on the precipice of voting in the Separatist Parti Quebec and booting long time Premier Jean Charest who looks to be about to lose his riding and see his career end with a bang short of a miracle at this point.
The PQ are looking at either a minority or slim majority in la belle province which has non-Francophones wondering if it’s time to leave like thousands of others before them.
The climate has changed dramatically since the 1995 referendum. Many in the Rest of Canada would like to see Quebec leave and I think one of the reasons the Harper government is being so quiet is because deep down this is something they’ve been rooting for.
Dealing with a PQ government is something that can only play well for Mr. Harper. Thomas Mulcair doesn’t have the platform to really fight the PQ and the Liberals are looking like toast day by day. Even the rumbles of Justin Trudeau becoming leader don’t seem to be tipping their fortunes. Mr. Harper will be playing hard ball with Ms Marois should she win on the 4th.
The one thing that has become crystal clear this election is that the Anglophone vote has lost any real clout that it once had with all three parties pandering to restrictive language policies more than ever.
September 4th looks like it will be the day that will change Canada as we know it forever. Looks like Cornwall Ontario will be about to get a boost to our economy and the amount of former Montreal residents living here soon!
