Anyone care?

I certainly don't. This hasn't had much play even in Quebec.

Bloc Québécois: le nouveau leader du parti sera choisi dimanche


La Presse Canadienne
Montréal
Les militants du Bloc Québécois choisiront leur nouveau chef dimanche, alors que le parti tente de recoller les morceaux après la cuisante défaite essuyée aux élections fédérales de mai.

Deux députés, Maria Mourani et Jean-François Fortin, de même que Daniel Paillé, qui a été emporté par la vague orange lors du dernier scrutin, se disputent le poste. Ils reconnaissent tous que le Bloc aura du pain sur la planche.

Mme Mourani a par ailleurs souligné que la reconstruction d'un parti politique ne pouvait se faire en un ou deux mois, ajoutant que le prochain chef aurait une «tâche colossale à abattre».

Les courses à la direction constituent habituellement une occasion pour les partis d'attirer l'attention médiatique, mais la chefferie au Bloc n'aura défrayé les manchettes qu'à quelques reprises.

The Province of Quebec is a nation within a nation since 2006 when the minority Conservative government of Stephan Harper attempted to appease the nation of Quebec hoping to gain one or two seats there. This is an absolute shame on the part of our Prime Minister Mr. Harper who once wrote an article in the National Post back in 2001 where he stated that bilingualism in Canada was a failed experiment.

I am absolutely ashamed of how Mr. Harper has made every valiant effort to appease the nation of Quebec which is reflected every time he gives a speech where he first begins in French. I remember the day many years ago before Mr. Harper was Prime Minister when he used to be an actual Conservative. Most notably when he stood up in Parliament and defended the action of President George W. Bush and the war against Saddam. Mr. Harper proudly stated that we should be standing “shoulder to shoulder’ with our American friends in the war against Saddam.

PM Harper will be remembered as one of Canada's best ever prime ministers, I believe. He's found a balance between good conservative policy and the voters appetite for lots of the opposite. Kudos to Dr Roy for spotting this PQ leadership story which hadn't earned a headline in English-speaking Canada. I just Googled "PQ leadership" and nothing recent made the first page of results.
