Unlike Ontario, there is a path to power for Liberals in Quebec
As Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals go in Ontario’s spring election, so too will go Philippe Couillard’s ruling party in Quebec in the fall? Given the turn of the campaign for the Ontario Liberals there certainly are too many parallels to comfort their Quebec cousins. But there are also striking differences.
Wynne and Couillard became leaders of their respective parties within six weeks of each other in 2013. At the time the Liberals in both provinces seemed to have exhausted their welcome in government.
