Pauline Marois relaunches PQ, Harper helps

Pauline Marois has emerged as the winner of the internal wars that have beset the Parti Québécois. Her leadership went uncontested at the recent PQ National Council meeting. Her principal rival, former Bloc leader, Gilles Duceppe has removed himself from active politics following a leak to La Presse, citing misappropriation by the Bloc of parliamentary funds for partisan purposes.

For Pierre Dubuc, a militant left-wing sovereignist, writing in L'Aut'Journal, the most important news is that Marois has corrected the mistakes that contributed to her troubles.

How Jack Layton's NDP won Quebec

The NDP won 59 of 75 seats in Quebec the old-fashioned way, on television. A first (and then a second) appearance by Jack Layton on the Sunday night talk show Everyone is Talking About It (Tout Le Monde En Parle) which draws Stanley Cup Final size audiences every week of its season, ignited terrific interest in the party.

Quebec television features home grown cultural expression; most people in the province watch Radio-Canada, Radio-Quebec, and the French language commercial channels.

The Conservative plan for the permanent election

Stephen Harper had the 2011 election won before the writ was dropped. All he had to do to win the most seats was not lose popularity during the campaign.

Harper won the May 2 election through months of expenditures of public money prior to the election making fraudulent claims about a Canadian Economic Recovery, though it was clear to keen observers that the economy still needed to recover.
