Au revoir, Pauline: Goodbye to Quebec's time of division | Apr 11 2014 | Monia Mazigh | Pauline Marois's strategists thought that by raising the spectre of a "Muslim invasion" they would succeed as the Front National in France did. But Quebec isn't France and North America isn't Europe.

Québec election day: We've already forgotten Lac-Mégantic | Apr 7 2014 | Nora Loreto | Throughout the 33 days of the election campaign, it seems that the tragedy at Lac-Mégantic has been forgotten. Very little was said by the leaders about rail safety and crude oil transportation. Why?
Mulcair happiest of all federal leaders at Couillard victory | Apr 7 2014 | Karl Nerenberg | Some will say the Liberals will benefit by having fellow Liberals in power in Quebec. The NDP's Mulcair also has a Couillard connection, and is relieved the national unity issue is off the table.
