Evolo Condos in Montreal
I have never seen an election so foreshadowed, but now it’s official: Quebec will vote on September 4.

If only there were a viable party/candidate to vote *for*.
Who does a bloke progressive vote for? I have spent 50 years listening to the Fed-Sov “debate” and am exhausted by its vacuousness, and am praying that QS doesn’t invest a lot there. However it seems thats where they have turned. I am proud to say I have never voted Liberal but does anyone else feel a drift.If not can somebody give some compelling reasons to vote for somebody.
My justification for voting for Quebec Solidaire is that there sovereignty stance is basically something they just throw out to appease the leftie Quebecois, because you kind of have to speak to it here, but that they are pretty much cosmopolitan Montrealers who keep their eye on the big picture.
My problem is that we have 5 parties currently holding seats in the National Assembly: 1 which is federalist but, in my opinion, is corrupt beyond repair; 4 which are sovereigntist. There is no option for someone like me who would like to vote for a party which would like to remain part of Canada, without compromising my other beliefs.
forget canada, it’s just not a relevant issue this time around. anyway, if you live in central montreal, not voting solidaire – essentially, the montreal party – is sort of crazy. especially since the election could result in a minority, where even 2-4 seats (doable for solidaire in montreal) could be enough to clinch vastly outsized influence.
Let’s not forget that a ‘sovereigntist party’ can only do so much to advance the project- I know that if a referendum comes up, I’ll be voting no, and will be campaigning hard to convince others. Therefore, I feel I can vote for QS (which presents the only real alternative to the neo-liberal complex) without any hesitation
True that. I’m going for the party with the best social policy, a referendum is another vote altogether.
People who vote for QS fascinate me. Can anyone really be that economically illiterate? Can anyone really be so blind to history’s lessons? It’s amazing.
Cuz they are socialists? Doesn’t matter, even if they get 5 seats they won’t install a communist socialist dictatorship hitler-stalin state. The only thing they could do, if anything, is pushing through a program here or there when collaborating with a minority government. Sort of like the NDP did during the minority-conservative governments. And if they get to grow in the next couple of elections, they’ll move close to the center, just like the ndp.
CS are socialists? Now that is illiteracy. Too much Fox News, maybe?
People who vote PLQ fascinate me. Can anyone really be that economically illiterate? Can anyone really be so blind to history’s lessons? It’s amazing.
“communist socialist dictatorship hitler-stalin state”…the mind boggles. Tongue in cheek, surely?
@ Adam, commenting on QS voters: “Can anyone really be so blind to history’s lessons”
We’re heading for extinction with corrupt governments that are exacerbating the problem by ignoring reality in order to continue feeding at the corporate trough. What historical lessons are YOU referring to?
^^ See, this is why I keep qatzelok around. ^^
…except that he thinks they’re corrupt because they cater to the interests of Anglo/Zionist conspiracy. Just because he says things that sound like the same conclusions you might reach doesn’t mean he got there using the same rationale. In fact, I’m pretty sure you can count on it.
Ian, you give me to think. Thank you.
I think you guys are missing qatzeloks evident steel edged satire, it has to be that, doesn’t it.
