The big tent is the support from french and english, man and woman. is what you wrote.

They have eleven seats in Quebec, not to mention all the other people of French extraction that voted for them.


Same in the east (where I live). No seats, but lots of (minority) support in the last election...........and, believe me, lots more in the coming election.


Right now, in the polls, the Liberals and the Conservatives are running neck and neck.


Lots of support from women.


This conversation is over, I'm tired of feed the troll.


In NB - as you know - the Cons only got in because, in reality, the Libs failed with their throne speech (and deservedly so). I still am suspicious of the Cons of NB because frankly I don't see them caring overall for NB, they're just playing ball right now because they have to.

Actually, the current political state of NB may just be the ideal for this province, if only to keep the French in check.

That said, I don't trust the Cons to do what's good for NB, as I said. Just like the Libs didn't. The Green and PA are the true power right now in NB and they know it. Higgs knows it and will kiss azz as long as he needs to in order to keep the numbers. He makes one mistake though and it's over and we'll be in for another election. Depending on who the next Lib leader is, they might get back in, too. Too many disliked Gallant to accept him no matter what his throne speech said.

You can't use the East as a judge for how the Cons will be. As for women's support, only if the Cons can keep women's issues as an important part of their platforms.

Woman`s issues???????????????????????????????????????????? ?



Jobs, money, crime and debt ARE WOMEN`S ISSUES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Just as much as for men!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!


Anything else is a LIE-beral con job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And I am amazed at how few Cdn women seem to be alarmed at the number of illegals coming here and soaking up our tax dollars!!!!


That money is YOUR RETIREMENT FUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Since women generally earn less than men- it stands rto reason that women will be MORE HURT by LIE-beral WASTE????????????


And then there is the Muslim and Islamophobia issue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Why are Cdn women not disturbed by the tens of thousands of Muslims that LIE-beral;s are inviting here over the protests of main stream Canada?????????????????????????????????


I am not happy with LIE-berals inviting immigrants who think I have unfairly profited from white privilege!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So WHY are Cdn women not disturbed about LIE-berals PAYING for Muslims to come here and pressure our govt to support Sharia Law- which if implemented- would STRIP CDN women of most of their rights!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Some versions of Sharia Law DEMAND that a woman NEVER be allowed even to leave the house without family permission and a suitable MALE RELATIVE as escort!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Nobody would ever call me a raging feminist but not being allowed out of the house without permission is a BIG BAG OF LIE-BERAL ORGANIC FERTILIZER- FRESH FROM THE BACK OF THE BULL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Western Canada party once worked to win a place in Ottawa. Today, voters might back another: poll

Quote:

"The West Wants In."
That was the founding slogan of the Reform Party, a political movement that grew out of Western Canada in the late 1980s, and that would go on to become the Official Opposition in 1993.
WATCH: Jan. 30 — Poll finds majority of Western Canadians feel Ottawa doesn't treat them fairly
The party grew out of voter dissatisfaction with Ottawa, and the perceived lack of attention that was being paid to the west. Primary issues for the populist party included Senate reform and reducing the size of government.
Western Canadians are still dissatisfied with the federal government -- perhaps more than the 1980s, according to a series of polls from the Vancouver-based Angus Reid Institute that look at the West's place in Confederation. Angus Reid last week reported that nearly three out of four Canadians who live west of Ontario don't feel the feds treat their province fairly, and that the feeling has grown worse in recent years.
Now, another Angus Reid Institute poll has found that, were another prospective "Western Canada Party" to start up in the coming federal election, it would have a stronger chance at drawing votes in every western province save for Manitoba — although the margin wasn't very wide in one place.
READ MORE: B.C. has few friends among the provinces, but Quebec has bigger rivals — poll
As part of the poll, Angus Reid asked survey respondents in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia to consider a hypothetical "Western Canada Party" that would push for the west's interests within Confederation and found 35 per cent of them would vote for a Western Canada Party if it were an option in the coming federal election versus 29 per cent who vote Conservative if such a party existed while 15 per cent would still vote Liberal and 13 per cent would stick with the NDP.
WATCH: Dec. 20, 2018 — Justin Trudeau on politicians he says want to 'exploit' Western alienation
Support varied by province — the strongest for a Western Canada Party was found in Alberta, where it drew the backing of 40 per cent of respondents, compared to 36 per cent for the Conservatives.
The weakest backing for a Western Canada Party was reported in Manitoba, where voting intention for such an organization was stuck in a three-way tie with the Conservatives and the Liberals at 27 per cent each.
READ MORE: Canadians in the west, more than those in the east, say Ottawa does not treat them fairly — poll
Those results came in the same poll that showed an increasing number of Western Canadians saying that anger at Ottawa is growing over the past 27 years.
The poll asked respondents, "Based on what you have seen, heard or read, do you feel that the number of western Canadians who are angry about Ottawa's treatment of the West is increasing, decreasing, or remaining the same?"
The pollster asked this question in 1991 and in 2018.
WATCH: Jan. 30 — New poll finds British Columbians identify more with Washington than other provinces
The feeling increased in every western province save for Manitoba in that time.
And it was most pronounced in Alberta — in 1991, 63 per cent of respondents there said it was increasing. In 2018, it was 86 per cent.
Saskatchewanians felt similarly — the share of people who felt this way grew from 66 per cent in 1991 to 81 per cent in 2018.
The feeling also grew in British Columbia, but not as dramatically. There, 57 per cent of people said anger was increasing in 1991. By 2018, that share grew to 63 per cent.
Manitoba was the only place where the share of people who held this perception appeared to have declined over that time — from 69 per cent in 1991 to 66 per cent in 2018.
WATCH: Oct. 8, 2018 — 62 per cent of Alberta feel they're not getting enough from confederation
"This is a part of the country that does not see itself reflected or represented in our so-called national institution," Shachi Kurl, executive director at the Angus Reid Institute, told Global News.
Kurl said Western Canadian provinces have been raising awareness of the weight they lift economically, and "all of this feeds into a sense that the rest of the country, particularly Ottawa, is not checked into what is happening, and what's important to western Canadians."
Asked about support for a "Western Canada Party," Kurl said there can "sometimes be a false narrative that suggests that the Conservatives are the voice of Western Canada, but is that really the case?"
She went on to note that when the Reform Party first emerged, one of its biggest issues was Senate reform.
"Thirty years later, it's not about Senate reform, but it is about seeing greater support for projects and priorities that Western Canadians, particularly those in Alberta and Saskatchewan, feel are not being reflected by the Trudeau Liberal government or by the previous Harper government."
She said resentment grew among voters after Stephen Harper merged the Reform Party-turned-Canadian Alliance with the Progressive Conservatives, but then "seemed to tilt to Ontario and to Quebec in terms of the place that needed to be the centre of gravity for Conservative votes."
Now, Kurl said, Conservative leader (and Saskatchewan MP) Andrew Scheer has taken said he believes in supporting and protecting supply management, "an issue that's going to do little to endear him to Western Canadian voters."
Scheer won the Conservative leadership over Maxime Bernier, who had taken a tough stance against supply management.
"Scheer's stance is very much a pro-Quebec stance, a stance that stems from the concerns of Quebec farmers," Kurl said.
The latest poll represents a "sit up and take notice" moment for all three main parties, Kurl said.
"The fact that you see potential for bleed from all three main parties to a hypothetical Western Canadian party, says to me this isn't just a Conservative problem, it's an everybody problem," she said.
"It's a Justin Trudeau problem, it's an Andrew Scheer problem, it's a Jagmeet Singh problem."
One idea that the poll didn't find much support for? Alberta separatism.
An overwhelming number of Albertans (83 per cent) felt Ottawa doesn't treat their province fairly, but 50 per cent of them saw it as a "real possibility."
That was the highest share of respondents who saw this happening across every province. The next-highest was Quebec, where a referendum on separation failed in 1995.
There, 37 per cent saw Alberta separatism as a real possibility.
The smallest share of respondents who felt this way was found in B.C., Canada's westernmost province, where only 20 per cent said they could truly see it happening.

IMO it will have the same effect as the Reform party could form opposition but never form Gov. CPC is the only chance we have for a Western voice.

It was a regional rump party, like the Bloc Quebecois. There just aren't enough voters in either region to over-rule the vast majority of Canadians.

Okay- it is clear that HOID is not nearly smart enough to come up with all his LIE-beral propaganda on his own!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


He has a committee of clods feeding him fresh, ripe, steaming, straight from the back of the LIE-beral Bull, best quality organic fertilizer!!!!!!!!


Max Bernier left the Conservative Party because of friction with Red Tories who are still at work trying to sabotage the party by introducing "LIE-beral Lite" policies!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Cdns have demonstrated they do not want a choice between LIE-beral and LIE-beral Lite!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The elections of Mike Harris, Rob Ford, Doug Ford , Stephen Harper, and the popularity of strong voices such as Preston Manning, Kellie Leitch, Lisa Rait, Kevin O`Leary and Jason Kenny ALL SHOW that Cdns want A REAL CHOICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



One has only to recall that Mike Harris was replaced by the HOPELESS, HELPLESS. HAPLESS Ernie Eaves of destruction thanks to Red Tory chikensh+ts!!!!!!!!!!!!



And that Mike Harris got the BIGGEST ever level of voter support in his second election!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Voter turnout in Toronto JUMPED by 40 percent when Rob Ford ran for mayor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Or we could recall that when Reform Party and Conservative Party joined forces- that IMBECILE JOE CLARK told us that "now all true Conservatives will now join the LIE-beral Party"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

I have stated that I believe Bernier has a better understanding of what Quebecers want!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Quebec has already had discussions about banning the Burqa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Quebec has already put enough pressure on Ottawa that a series of buses have shipped illegals from Quebec west into Ontari-owe!!!!!!!!!!



Bernier is willing to present a STRONGER and more LOCALLY oriented version of Conservative values to Quebec!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Andrew Sheer is playing to a much more diverse NATIONAL audience and must therefore be much more cautious in his statements and policies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!


And Quebec is all about bribery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We have seen multiple news reports detailing how fully organized crime has infiltrated and influenced Quebec govt contracts!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Organized crime developed such influence that govt contracts routinely carried extra cash for the "business partners"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Or we could look at the $11 billion dollars in BRIBE MONEY- also known as Federal Transfer Payments that Our idiot Boy has paid to Quebec!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Bloc Quebecois had a heavily socialist program!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


The Quebec LIE-berals have a heavily socialist program!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The suddenly and briefly popular but now shoved off the stage Quebec arm of NDP has a heavily socialist program!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


There is now good reason to believe that Quebecois are just as fed up with LIE-berals as the rest of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Quebec was part of the three way carbon crap and trade tax scam that it worked with Ontari-owe and California and California has DOUBLED its carbon tax price- while Quebec HAS NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


There is reason to suspect that Quebecers are just as disgusted with the LIE-beral carbon tax scam as the rest of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And there is good reason to suspect - and to HOPE - that Bernier will be a Quebec version of Mike Harris!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If Bernier succeeds in Quebec then we know he can be a good ally for Andrew Sheer and the same can be said of Premier Legault and his CAQ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
