Cons never got much for seats in Quebec anyway. And by taking a stand it might have garnered more votes in the other provinces where we are tired of having French rammed down our throats.Yeah, kind of unrealistic, I'm afraid. Not only would it cost you seats in Quebec but lots in Ontario. There is a way to do it, if you have a really charismatic leader to make up for some losses, and he has a strong Quebec lieutenant who he would say would be his deputy PM if elected and who could represent the party in Quebec. I don't know how it would go over but that would be what I would try.
