First Nations and Quebec

Pierre Beaudet
The main issue with First Nations is not about Quebec nationalists. It is about the Canadian state, and the way it expropriated and discriminated against First Nations.

Natural gas drilling in Quebec

I'm sure you guys have heard of the debate of natural gas drilling in Quebec. I at first wondered if this was the same stuff you needed to use hydraulic fracturing and apparently it is. I'm familiar with this process and what it's done to the water reserves of towns surrounding it; people having explosive chemicals in their water. At the same time Quebec's economy is beginning to suffer and in the next decade we'll really be able to see the effect of this, unless of course the other provinces want to continue supporting Quebec. I don't know what to think here but it seems it's one of those damned if you do damned if you don't situations.

Jeff Itcush Mount Royal NDP

Last night I was at the campaign office launch of Jeff Itcush 

Itcush is running for the NDP in Mount Royal.   There was standing room only.  After the first wave of people started to trickle out, a second wave seemed to come in.   There were several cultural community representatives present.  Thomas Mulcair also spoke.

It seemed like his campaign team was experienced and talented.  The office was a suite of rooms that looked like a political "war room".   Itcush spoke about the budget, refugie and immigration issues and youth.

Harper can lose out in Quebec

Pierre Beaudet
Harper will be happy to maintain his feeble base here. If the campaign turns in an unexpected way, he could lose some ridings.

Quebec nationalists slip

Pierre Beaudet
Last week, the BQ MP Yvon Levesque really made a fool of himself. He declared that constituents in the far north riding of Abitibi-Baie-James-Nunavik Eeyou would never elect a First Nations candidate.
