From all I hear, our Quebec City seats are safe. Our friend Andre Arthur is doing well. Maxime will win big and we should have some more seats in Montreal like Agop Evereklkian , Saulie Zajdel( and hopefully many others) and other places in Quebec. The grits are in very big trouble in Quebec. There stranglehold on Anglophone and Allophone votes is slipping away.
Since providing the Conservatives with the bulk of their 2006 breakthrough in the province, voters in the provincial capital region have remained a breed apart, immune if not hostile to the Bloc’s left-leaning politics.
And despite speculation that the Tories could be punished for their refusal to subsidize a new hockey arena in Quebec City, they appear in little danger here as the May 2 vote approaches.
When Parliament was dissolved, the Conservatives held eight suburban and rural ridings in the region, including a stranglehold on the section of the province stretching south to the U.S. border.
We need a Tory majority and so do the grits. If the grits are to survive they need to face their time in the wilderness and rebuild.
