A factual analysis dispells some myths about Quebec and Conservatives

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder
 

Prime Minister Harper's first stop after calling the election on Sunday was Montreal.

If you listen to most of the media chatter the Conservatives have no hope in Quebec. That is just one of the myths that I peel back using stats and experience covering the last six federal elections.

Peter Netterville said: “The main stream media will do anything and/or say anything if it means getting Harper out of the PM chair.”

This is SO true. Over the year, I’ve checked my Facebook feed and did some Twitter scouting. The most common line appeared virtually everytime: “Anyone but Harper”. That’s the message Canada’s sheep are getting and it’s a dangerous message. Many of these people I have taken to task and their only defenses is the lefty propaganda, or they have no clue as to what is so “evil” about Harper. They never did any research into the facts, nor did they want to. That could bode very dangerous in the election. But then, it might not, given that many who bark and snarl aren’t very likely to vote. But if they do…

“I could see a lot of smart French Canadians understanding that money in their pockets, less social spending, and making it attractive for business’ to do business is the best economic policy.”
I hope you’re right, ALEX AMARTLU. But, with the exception of perhaps Saskatchewan, I don’t see business communities in any of our other provinces exercising that kind of analytical thought. From large corporations all the way down to farmers and other small businesses, everyone just wants to get on the biggest gravy train they can find.

Keith says, “This man has a serious conflict of interest to squat on.”

Yes, but this conflict of interest means less than nothing as far as the main stream media is concerned so long as Mulcair can unseat Harper. The main stream media will do anything and/or say anything if it means getting Harper out of the PM chair. The MSM has zero morals.

Is Dullcare still a French Citizen? How did his Wife make out in the French Elections? This man has a serious conflict of interest to squat on. As France is, all but in name, a Muslim Country, as shall Canada be the same, with Dullcare as a Misleader.

Alex posted, “Are you really surprised Mulcair doesn’t know tax rates? Are you really surprised that Mulcair doesn’t believe there are terrorist threats to Canada.”

Nope.

KILL THE CBC!”

Well, at least defund the CBC anyway, and let them survive on their own, even if they have to run American programming to survive (which they are already doing).

I could see a lot of smart French Canadians understanding that money in their pockets, less social spending, and making it attractive for business’ to do business is the best economic policy.I guarantee you that our economic situation would have been way worse if the Conservatives were not in power. What I find laughable is the NDP trying to establish an economic policy. This is a contradiction in ideology. Are you really surprised Mulcair doesn’t know tax rates? Are you really surprised that Mulcair doesn’t believe there are terrorist threats to Canada. Chamberlain convinced the British people that Hitler was no threat to Britain. There are devastating truths that Britain endured because of Chamberlain. These are the problems Canadians can face with an NDP government. What upset’s me is that MSM does not want to say this. KILL THE CBC!

Joan, I couldn’t agree with you more.

This whole concept of the FN being parallel equal nations with Canada is not only a politically, financially and logistical impossibility, but would be an extremely detrimental policy for Canada to enact. Both Trudeau and Mulcair push this FN nation concept.
commented 2015-08-03 20:54:08 -0400
I would like to hear Mulcair expand on what his proposed “nation to nation” relationship with FN Canadians would look like. Given there is no one first nation. Quebec as a separate but equal nation, this mythical FN separate but equal nation, all within what? Canada? What do we call the rest of Canada, the mix of ethnicities and languages and religions? Separate but equal? Or disparate, weak, and warring? Can’t we all get behind one Canada?

Seriously. I hope someone asks him that.

The majority of people in Mont-Royal are French speaking (mother tongue and used today in the family).

Mother tongue out of 18500, French 8500, English, 4000, others 6000.
Spoken at home : French 9100, English 6000, others 3000 (with a lot of francophiles : Arabic speakers, Viets, Latino, Romanians, more recent immigration). Shows great attraction of English (in the past partly) but is not a majority…

Thanks for that Brian. You know, sometimes even bad Blues is better than no Blues.

Rick said, “Separatism aside, Quebeckers always seem to elect those they think will do best to shakedown the rest of Canada to give them everything their hearts’ desires!”

That’s an accurate description. They are spoiled children.

“All provinces will be “have – nots” except Newfoundland. You sure you want a socialist running Ottawa now???” If the Socialists get elected, whether NDP or a “coalition” of Dipper and Lieberal socialists, one thing for sure. They will go full bore after Saskatchewan, which as it turns out, may be the only “have” province in the country left after the NDP trash Alberta. They are the only ones diversified enough now to not depend solely on oil. Things are slowing in BC, so don’t count on that much longer for transfer payments!
commented 2015-08-03 17:26:35 -0400
Quebec has always been the fickle, spoiled child in the room as pertains to Federal Elections. It is folly to predict anything from that province (sorry, “Nation”). Separatism aside, Quebeckers always seem to elect those they think will do best to shakedown the rest of Canada to give them everything their hearts’ desires!
commented 2015-08-03 16:44:27 -0400
Oh and yes – oil closed near 45 per barrel – near the six year low – say goodbye to Alberta and the enn-dee (another $6B in debt to be added) pee.

All provinces will be “have – nots” except Newfoundland. You sure you want a socialist running Ottawa now??? LMFAO!!!

Here are 2 more myths – 1) MSM has to be on board. 2) You need to win quebec to win Canada

Harper crushed these two last election – funny how the MSM is so marginalized and get ignored by Harper.

MSM – keep your fax machines on – Harper has another statement for you to read. LMFAO!!!!

People tend to forget that a good deal why modern separatism gained traction was due to the big new social programs that Lester Pearson, Tom Kent, Tommy Douglas, and Pierre Elliot Trudeau forced through during the 1965 through 1969 era. Things like Medicare and the Canada Assistance Plan Act of 1966 (which greatly changed Canadian policy on welfare spending and policy) angered Premier Jean Lesage and others in Quebec as these pieces of legislation and others trampled upon Quebec’s own unique tradition of social policy. Given this, I’ve simply had to laugh about how the left will forever talk sanctimoniously about how conservatives are so insensitive to Quebec, yet it has been the antics of the Liberals, NDP, and Red Tories who’ve plowed into these very poorly constructed and also very naive ideas and programs that gave tons of fuel for the separatists.
