Madame Paille goes for the Bloc

The briefly famous everyday Canadian casts her vote for the BQ.

“We are united, we are proud to be Quebeckers, we are proud of our language, and we can trust them to defend all of that in our name,” Ms. Paillé said in a speech at a campaign rally. “On May 2, please don’t vote for the NDP flavour of the day,” she said. “Don’t vote according to the polls, which can be used to say anything. Vote according to your basic common sense, for Quebec, and that is the Bloc Québécois.”
