The people are never wrong . If governments and their intrenched bureaucracies worked for the benefit of the population instead of the bureaucracy we wouldn’t see these swings .

Quebec election: François Legault leads Coalition Avenir Québec to majority as Liberals ousted from power

Quote:

François Legault’s Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) will form the next majority government in Quebec. This historic election marks a first victory for the party and a stunning defeat for the Liberals.
“I am very touched by your trust,” said Legault on Twitter. “My team and I cannot wait to get to work for you.”
The CAQ, which has positioned itself as centre-right of the spectrum, is also the first new party to take power in the province since 1976.
The party held a commanding lead soon after the polls closed, with the incumbent Liberals in second place and the Parti Québécois (PQ) in third.
The province’s outgoing premier, Philippe Couillard, said he had spoken to Legault to congratulate him. In a speech at party headquarters, the Liberal leader said he would take a few days to consider his future in politics.
“I am not bitter — I am proud,” he said.
Jean-François Lisée, the head of the PQ, has lost his Montreal riding of Rosemont.
The CAQ was leading in more than 70 ridings — well above the 63 seats required for a majority. The Liberals were leading in about 32 ridings.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has congratulated the CAQ for its majority win in Monday’s provincial election.
“I look forward to working with Premier Legault to make Quebec, a province we are all proud of, an even better place to live,” he said.
Legault, a former Parti Québécois (PQ) cabinet minister, founded the party in 2011 as a nationalist third-way between the sovereignist PQ and the federalist Liberals.
Over the 39-day election campaign, Legault promised to usher in an era of change. He stood firm on his immigration proposals in the wake of criticism from his opponents and voters alike.
Legault advocated to decrease the number of immigrants coming to Quebec from 50,000 to 40,000. His proposal includes implementing controversial values and language tests for newcomers after three years.
Despite being a new party, the CAQ has a core of experienced MNAs after having won 19 seats in 2012 and 22 seats in 2014.

PQ leader lost his seat and resigned as leader

Its a win for federalism in Quebec.

They finally had an alternative to the Liberals that was not sovereignist/separatist.

It should also be noted that the PC's won 0 seats.

================================================== ================================================== ====


So the CAQ wins in Quebec........and news media hypocrites describe the party as "centre/right"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Thirty years ago CAQ would have been seen as centrist or even a little bit leftie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This is how far the Cdns political spectrum has been POISONED by LIE-beral vote buying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Cdn political scene has been totally TWISTED and polarized!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



But it is a good sign that LIE-berals were defeated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Failed LIE-beral policy has so debauched our economy and loaded us up with huge debts that the Cdn public is ENRAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!



Even better is that Our idiot Boy Justin will have to run his 2019 election with that NAFTA MESS trailing him like an incontinent Saint Bernard- crapping all over his parade route!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Our idiot Boy can dress up his NAFTA deal in red ribbons and shout Huzzah over it- but it is STILL nothing more than a well decorated political TURD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess you are right. Most people didn't vote for Donald Trump. And most people didn't vote for the CAQ either.

The election had nothing to do with Trudeau. In Canada the provincial parties are often quite separate from the federal. So far as I know Trudeau didn't even bother to campaign in Ontario, Quebec or in NB either. And he certainly stayed away from BC where the Liberal Party is hardly liberal and has very few links with the federal party. As a result it is unlikely that anyone will lay any blame at his feet.

Actually, the CAQ is officially a sovereignist party, but unlike the PQ, sovereignty is far from its list of priorities. It's a more passively sovereignist party we could say compared to the PQ that's more actively sovereignist.

Newsflash. That was a provincial election, not a Federal one. The Quebec Liberal Party has no relationship to the Federal one. In fact, the only political party in Canada to the best of my knowledge that operates both at the federal and provincial level is the NDP. When you joijn the NDP, you automatically become a member of both the provincial and the federal party. Not so the Liberal Parties. That's right, parties with an 's' because though they share the same name, they're actually unrelated to one another organizationally.

Yes but the riding executive is interchangeable.

You are wrong. Sovereignty is not on the CAQ agenda. Its policy on sovereignty is to ignore the the debate and simply ''move one'' and take care of more important stuff like economy, health care and education.

You might be right. I'll have to look into that. I do know though that they're not officially federalist.

Does that mean shouldering more of the burden of getting an increase in funding from the rest of Canada?
https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montr...ties-1.4846427
More private health care, overhaul of seniors' care

The CAQ favours the decentralization of the health-care system and would allow the private-sector to supply more services. It has promised to renegotiate a controversial compensation package with Quebec's medical specialists. The savings, however, are not included in the party's financial plan, indicating they aren't counting on striking a new deal.
They want to overhaul the province's long-term institutional care system (CHSLDs) with a new network of what they say would be smaller, more "humane" homes, at an initial cost of $1 billion.
(in part)
That seems to set things up for Quebec to offer services that are out of the 'budget' of Government supplied HC. I assume those places would be open to people from other Provinces or countries as long as they can cough up the cash. Money that would stay in province while letting Canada pick up the tab for the services the private places don't cover as the Fed can be made to cover those costs.


When a new Government starts rolling back the crimes of previous governments them I will believe 'change is in the wind'. Promises are a long ways from completed tasks and if 'others' don't want the changes to take place they won't. Look at the brexit if you want proof. If the Govt was going to allow the voters to have their way it would have already happened. Manning went to Ottawa full of piss and vinegar, by the end of 4 years he 'was one of the good old boys' that sucks off the Govt tit.


Tax cuts, money for families

The CAQ is promising to put $1.7 billion back into the wallets of Quebecers annually, primarily through allocations to families and a reduction in school taxes. Legault has promised to give families $2,400 per child annually. Right now, families receive that amount only for their first child.
(in part)
The day-care changes would have to be looked at to see how this works as the money the families get might end up in the pockets of day-care facilities that are help along with new clients by the Government itself. Might as well call it what it is. foster care where the parent is the Government.


Cut immigration

Legault has vowed to cut the number of immigrants by 20 per cent, to 40,000 annually. Under the CAQ plan, newcomers will have to pass a language and values test in order to get a Quebec selection certificate — a requirement to stay. Legault says the change would ensure more immigrants integrate into the workforce.
During the campaign, Legault struggled to explain the details of his plan — and the basics of Canada's immigration policy.
Quebec only has jurisdiction over economic immigrants, so Legault will need to work with Ottawa if he wants to reduce the intake of refugees, as well as the number of immigrants who come to Quebec through Canada's family reunification program. Those two categories account for roughly 20 per cent of new arrivals.
(in part)
They want to allow 'immigrants' in where they are defined as being 'financially well off' compared to 'refugees' who don't even own the shirts on their backs and they 'will be on welfare forever' and it is a good chance all their children and grandchildren will also be on welfare as the elite position are the ones who will be getting what few jobs there are.

================================================== ================================================== ====


Poor Bar silly Sister..........how SAD HE MUST BE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Just think how it would feel to know that his beloved LIE-berals have very little chance of winning a future election using ANY of their current FAILED policies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Just look at the trouble Wynne-bag LIE-berals are in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


What possible new policy can they offer us to win back support??????????????????


Lower electricity rates????????????????????????


Nope- they NEED HIGHER RATES to create a slush fund big enough to buy back the attention of civil service union Hogs!!!!!!!!!!!


They could offer to kill the hated carbon tax!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Oh wait.............Doug Ford has done that for them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


They could offer up lower water rates???????????????????????


Nope- they need gravy for water dept pensions as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


No gravy for Hogs means no new LIE-beral govt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


They could offer up a grand new plan for repairing our roads and infrastructure?????????????


Oh......no.......there is still that problem with GRAVY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And given the various nasty scandals surrounding the road paving and bridge building Wynne-bag LIE-berals did- apparently the only business people LIE-berals know are either incompetent or rather SLEAZY and untrustworthy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals could offer to get tough on crime for a change!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But that would mean turning on all the illegals whose votes they so desperately want to buy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals could offer to deal with the homeless mess they have created???????????????????????


But that would mean admitting that mad and endless LIE-beral spending has damaged our economy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It owuld also mean having to admit that LIE-berals LIED about our "booming economy"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Resolving the homeless problem would mean rounding up most of the homeless and forcing treatment on them!!!!!!!!!!!!


Yes- those who are mentally ill would get treated and those who are drug addicted would be locked up safely until their physical addiction fades away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But LIE-berals will not make any of these choices regarding the homeless as such choices are too logical to be acceptable to them!!!


Yes- if Ontari-owe LIE-berals are to have ANY CHANCE of winning another election then the party must immediately dispose of all its current members and fully and completely REPUDIATE ALL current LIE-beral policy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


That old saying about "be careful what you wish for applies to LIE-berals"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


They wanted power and wanted to lead- and they got their wish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And now, by showing us exactly what they are and what they stand for - the LIE-beral party has committed political suicide!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


How can the LIE-beral party MAGICALLY transform itself after being publicly exposed as being poisonously WRONG in everything???????????


David Copperfield could not pull off such a magic trick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


AS I said back in 2015- Our idiot Boy will be performing a political magic trick that makes our jobs and money disappear- but because he does not understand the trick- the jobs and money WILL BE GONE"!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Never to reappear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
