Stephen Harper's French a few years ago was considered to be on the level of Dewar's and he now has a majority government.
When his French was considered poor he took 25% of the vote in Quebec. Now that Quebeckers see his ideology they've turned against him. Are the NDP only concerned about Quebec now?
I'm not sure what "test" Kennedy passed. I remember distinctly that his leadership campaign went into free-fall when it became clear that his abilities were highly over-rated and that his French was actually very sub-standard.
The Liberal Party made each candidate do a test to see if they were bilingual, Dion in English and the rest in French. His campaign probably went into "free-fall", which I don't know if it did or not, probably because he came out against recognizing the Quebecois as a nation, a smart move. Had Kennedy supported the motion he probably would have beaten Dion on the second ballot and went on to win.
