Charest’s last stand?

PQ to put non-confidence motion before National Assembly in Quebec


 

The Parti Québécois will attempt to bring down Quebec premier Jean Charest’s government next Wednesday with a non-confidence motion. PQ leader Pauline Marois made the announcement Tuesday, citing Charest’s “stubborn refusal to open an independent public inquiry into the construction industry.” Normally, such a motion would be easily defeated by the Liberal majority, but the PQ points out that, under the current circumstances, all that’s needed is for three Liberal MNAs to be late or absent for the opposition parties to win the vote. Should Marois’s gambit succeed, Charest would be forced to resign and call an election.

Charest’s last stand?

  1. Oh man if the PQ ends up getting into power it's going to be absolutely hilarious, that party has no idea what it wants.

    I don't think the motion will pass but stranger things have happened.

    • Compared to how the Liberals dealt with them? War Measures Act, Adscam, I can't imagine the Conservative could make it worse.

  4. Recently, the Maclean's magazine did an article on the history of corruption in Québec, and unfortunatly the PQ tries to use that to bring down the Charest government, and I don't agree with that…

    I think that there is a lot of corruption in Québec, because Quebecers pay too much taxes…

    Since the liberals are too afraid or too "socialist" to do a clean up in the gouvernment and be "right wing", and decrease taxes, it will take a right wing party in Québec to beat both the PQ and the PLQ in the next election, or at least to make sure the next goverment is a minority like in 2007-2008…
