That is my question today. What’s happening in the Province of Québec?
First of all in Québec here there was no NDP and no Conservative party candidates to run in the recent provincial election. What we had to vote for were the Liberals, the PQ, Coalition, future Québec, Québec solidaire, Green Party of Québec, Parti marxiste-leniliste du Québec and Québec Citizens Union.
The only two parties that I am familiar with are the PQ and Liberals. The others all unknown to me. So instead of voting for the PQ or Liberals or voting for the others which were unknown to me, I was pretty much forced to stay home and hope for the best. For me it was the first time I had heard of a bunch of those parties and it seemed to be the case for a lot of other people too.
The election result: I'm not impressed with the Marois win. All I can say to this, troubled times are ahead if she decides to implement all the garbage that she promised during the election. Well, she is in charge now and I don’t think that whoever is going to be the opposition will give her too much of a hassle.
Lets face it, what choice did the people have? The others are all unknown so they voted for the one that they knew and that was PQ.
Now in Ontario they have NDP, Libs and PC. I don’t know about the Green Party for provincial government in Ontario.
What I find weird is there were none from NDP or PC to run in this election. Don’t these Parties have anyone running in this province for provincial elections like they do in Ontario? If not how did the Liberals get in here? It's a disappointing choice available to Quebec and I don't believe it serves the province well.
That’s my little rant of the day.
