The prime minister and Quebec premier appear to be getting along — bad news for the Conservatives and Bloc​


On Mar. 15, Trudeau was in Montreal with Legault to announce an investment in an electric vehicle manufacturer based in Saint-Jérôme, north of the city. A week later, the two men were in Trois-Rivières to announce funding for high-speed internet access in Quebec. The federal government's portion of the cost will help Legault fulfil a campaign promise he made in 2018.

That second announcement took place in a riding Trudeau's Liberals came just 2.4 points short of winning in the 2019 election — and where the incumbent Bloc MP has announced she will not be running again.

In Quebec, where concerns about climate change poll higher than in any other part of the country, the perception that the Conservatives are not taking the environment seriously will not do the party any favours.

Neither will the party's decision to change the rules for its leadership contests. A subtle shift in how votes will be counted in future leadership campaigns willhave the effect of diminishing Quebec's influence the next time the party chooses a leader.

If I was a woman in Trudeau's cabinet, and he's posing for a selfie in front of another bus, I'd be pretty damn unnerved as the last time he posed in front of a bus shortly afterwords he threw Raybould/Wilson under it.

Good. He can take it right out of Canada and most of our problems will be solved.

"In Quebec, where concerns about climate change poll higher than in any other part of the country, the perception that the Conservatives are not taking the environment seriously will not do the party any favours."

Yep, soooo concerned about it they're paying a 50% lower carbon tax rate than the ROC. Soooo concerned about it that they had an energy project in the province that included *GASP* pipelines. Soooo concerned about it that the province has made zero moves to shut down its refining industry. Soooo concerned about it that their cement industry is still productive and pays a 50% lower carbon tax rate than Ontario's cement industry.
No wonder you love Quebec so much, they're a bunch of hypocritical assholes like yourself.

It was a joke, you extremely intelligent person.

Also, good luck with that referendum lol
Why thank you. We fully intend to have a referendum. The biggest holdup is the wording.
Should the west separate from Canada
SHould all of Canada kick Quebec out of confederation.
Because I have friends on the other side of Quebec I am inclined to go with option 2.
