Conservative populist nationalist party sweeps Quebec election. Is this a flicker of hope for us all?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

 

The Coalition Avenir Quebec Party, CAQ, as it’s known, just won the Quebec election, and they won it huge.

There are 125 seats in the Quebec legislature and the CAQ got 74.

The Liberals in Justin’s home province, led by Philippe Couillard, were gutted, falling to their lowest result ever. Less than 25 per cent, plunging from 68 seats to just 32 seats.

In addition to the CAQ getting more than 37 per cent of the vote, a party that didn’t even exist seven years ago, the radical left-wing, pro-Muslim, pro-Communist party called Quebec solidaire, got 16 per cent, doubling its vote.

And the traditional alternative to the Liberals, the Parti Quebecois, got just nine seats!

But what’s so interesting is that the CAQ is the party of the right, one that would likely be called Progressive Conservative, or maybe even Red Tory if it were in Ontario or certainly in Alberta.

For Quebec, there’s no denying that this is the closest thing to a conservative government they’ve had since the nineteenth century.

And you know what? I’m absolutely sure that if you get your news about Quebec from the mainstream media in Canada — especially from the CBCthis was a total surprise to you.

It’s partly the language barrier, and partly the fact that the rest of Canada is no longer as obsessed with Quebec as were a generation ago.

And, without the French language ability to follow the news, we’ve had to rely on a handful of pundits in Ottawa and Montreal to tell us — and they’re almost all with the CBC state broadcaster, who have an agenda.

They hate the CAQ; they hate that it’s not left-wing. They hate that it’s against burkas. But mainly, they love the establishment parties, because they’re the establishment.

Trudeau’s state broadcaster is stunned by the news in Quebec. They did their best to stop it.

Quebec nationalism was part of the CAQ’s message. Legualt is also a fiscal conservative who says his long-term goal is to make the province strong enough that it no longer needs to take equalization payments from Alberta, Saskatchewan and B.C.

And, he’s also more moderate on environmentalism - not part of the cult, like Trudeau and many other Liberals and New Democrats are.

But I think — and, I acknowledge, it’s hard for me, an Anglo in Toronto to detect it authentically — his nationalism is important.

When Trudeau was elected, it looked dark indeed. But now Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and likely New Brunswick are a wall of conservative reaction to him, and Alberta is just a year away from throwing out Rachel Notley, too.

The carbon tax is in jeopardy; the open borders are in disrepute. Donald Trump just gave Trudeau a spanking on NAFTA.

It seems like the people are taking back their country, starting with enforcing the borders in Quebec.

The media still hates it; they’ll fight to the bitter end.

But maybe, just maybe, this Quebec election, in the face of the establishment scolding them, is a flicker of hope for us all.

 

NEXT: Ian Lee, Associate Professor at the Sprott School of Business, joins me to break down the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). How did Canada do? Is the agreement the death knell for Canada’s dairy cartel? And did the “grown ups” get to Trudeau to convince him to sign a deal?

 

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Nic,

Because there was hard visual evidence on Franken and they couldn’t get around that. But with anything less than that, they have nothing to say if it’s a Democrat. Like Keith Ellison. Pathetic.

And you have completely misrepresented our take here, i.e. “without any real proof”. Weinstein was on tape coercing a woman. That constitutes real proof, as in the case of Franken.

Congressional Democrats are now exposed as the amoral slime that they are. They have only one concern, and it isn’t justice or fairness. It’s just power over the lives of others, nothing else.

Alberta Maga,

They haven’t. Just ask Al Franken.
commented 2018-10-04 10:49:00 -0400
The hypocrisy is insane here. You were all perfectly fine with the downfall of Hollywood celebs and other liberals without any real proof and certainly no day in court – happily calling them out as sexual predators, rapists and pedophiles.

But now that the focus is on a conservative that you want to be on the Supreme Court – now you are concerned about proof and court trials.

Pathetic.

Nicholas Conklin tell me why the left has ignored women accusing Democrats? Go preach to them.
commented 2018-10-04 01:50:15 -0400
Nicholas Conklin no she does not seem credible , you are just biased. And her friends say it never happened. Larry Sinclair seems credible, how about you look that up.

He is a troll Justin. Jimmy duh Sylva is the name he used to use.

Justin Harbord,

I hope you’re right about Bernier, but according to Bernier, you’re wrong. Watch the video.

Nic,

As if you had the remotest idea of whether or not anything happened to Ford. But she never seemed credible to me, and every passing day’s revelations make her less credible. This is a put up job. You don’t want to see that, so you won’t, no matter how much evidence come to light that refutes her flimsy story.
commented 2018-10-04 00:51:57 -0400
It’s hilarious that our little soy boy JT gets accused of groping a reporter where there is evidence such as a place , time and event and personal account and nothing but silence from the left !

liza Rosie,

Being credible doesn’t mean that Kavanaugh is guilty per se, but that she was believable in that something DID happen to her that day. As a woman, it’s sad that you think she is just making things up and nothing happened to her regardless if it Kavanagh or someone else.

You have been watching too many Alex Jones type of shows with conspiracy theories.

I see you also ignored my comment about Liberals and Hollywood people that haven’t had their day in court, but had their careers destroyed anyway. Of course you are perfectly fine if it’s a Liberal vs. a conservative like Kavanaugh.
commented 2018-10-03 23:21:04 -0400
Well done, Mi AMIGO Liza. But what does Jimmy duh Sylva mean?
commented 2018-10-03 23:10:44 -0400
I mean Jimmy Duh Sylva.

…and you are a beta soy Nick, and playing faux feminist is the only way you get any.
commented 2018-10-03 23:06:21 -0400
If it were ‘credible’ and there actually was any proof, it would go to court, and it never will, because there isn’t. This is manufactured to keep this pick for Judge from being appointed, and nothing else. Its a sham.

It has been reported that she is involved with a CIA undergraduate internship program at Stanford University. She has all sorts of very questionable connections and family members. She is not the frail little mouse she perfected for the camera. She is a psychologist of some sort and knows very well how to ‘play’ victim.
commented 2018-10-03 23:05:35 -0400
And as for my new pal Nick, well, he’s what I’m worried about. Happy to convict someone based on PC and lead us all into the facism he and the rest of the sissies need and deserve.
commented 2018-10-03 23:03:35 -0400
liza Rosie,

I don’t see you complaining about Hollywood types and liberals in the same capacity that haven’t been proven guilty in a court of law.

I understand now – you are biased and you are being a hypocrite on top of betraying women.
commented 2018-10-03 22:59:32 -0400
Oh for Pete’s Sake. Of course Bernier will run hard in Quebec and almost nowhere else. Why would he or anyone with half a brain run where he’,s not likely to win and could end up splitting the conservative vote?? Jesus. I just can’t understand why so many of you sell this man so short. He’s a pro. He’ll look to see what candidates pop up in every riding and run with them or not, only so long as they ate highly likely to win Simple.
commented 2018-10-03 22:50:39 -0400
No Nic, what is sad, is a society that has lost all honour and shame, that is what’s sad. Innocent until proven guilty. No one has a right to be believed based solely on their sex. Reason and evidence or stfu. There is not a damn thing ‘credible’ about her ramblings.
commented 2018-10-03 22:11:57 -0400
Liza,

No one knows what happened, but she is very credible. If you were able to watch her testimony and you actually think she is lying and that nothing happened to her regardless if it was Kavanaugh or someone else, that is pretty sad.
commented 2018-10-03 20:59:17 -0400
Thanks Ted, I will check it out.

Liza,

The Bernier interview I watched is called ‘The People’s Party of Canada’ on Youtube and the Youtube channel is called ‘The Agenda with Steve Paikin’. The exact quote is “Everything can happen in politics”. Not real reassuring.

Justin Harbord,

You should watch this interview; Bernier contradicts everything you have been saying. He isn’t concerned with splitting the conservative vote, because he doesn’t consider the CPC to be conservative. Never mind that millions of conservative Canadians do, and that they will be voting CPC in 2019. No, it’s just Bernier’s way or a Trudeau majority again.

The only way to avoid that is for Bernier to run only in Quebec, which would demolish the Trudeau Liberals and give Bernier the balance of power in Parliament. But he seems to not care about that, preferring to run across Canada and thereby re-elect Trudeau as PM. Now of course, I don’t really think he wants that, but that is all he will accomplish by running in every riding across the country, which he explicitly states he is going to do. He is thinking with his ego instead of his brain, apparently oblivious to the consequences of his actions. I can only hope someone explains the Quebec-only strategy to him before it is too late and Trudeau gets another term as PM.

Jimmy probably thinks Hillary tells the truth too.

“It’s disappointing that as a woman, you think Ford is lying”
Nic Jimmy duh Sylva, she is an insult to the sex. She is the very worst and most destructive kind of liar. Do some damn research instead of lapping up codswallop. Its disappointing that as a ‘man’ you defend such a hideous liar.

Ask me if I am attacking a ‘victim’. I will save you the trouble. There has been NO proof backed up by reason or evidence. This case will NEVER see a court of law because there is NOTHING to base her accusations on but her sorry acting job.

“But am I alone in being alarmed at these millennial “men”?”

We are all alarmed, according to Stefan Molyneux, it started in Sweden where the men are mild toward their females. Soon the men stayed home to care for the home and babies. The FEMINISTS learned to use their votes to receive more free programs. Now they don’t need men as much as they are paid by the Govt, even though the money they receive was extracted from men. Their male children are brought up like females.

As soon as the present Feminist movement ends, the boys will grow up to be more like the men in WWll. Pray we don’t have a war as the N. Korea female soldiers could wipp
these guys even without guns.

Justin Harbord,

I have a life and a wife. No need to call on any woman.

It’s hilarious that you think doing worse than Kavanaugh gives you balls and that women are attracted to that.
commented 2018-10-03 20:18:15 -0400
I have to wonder how the Dems and MSM would treat Kavanaugh if he was Muslim (or a Democrat). In Sharia, abuse of women, especially infidels, is allowed.

The Dems are leading the #metoo movement while condoning Sharia mistreatment of women. Square that circle…
commented 2018-10-03 20:06:59 -0400
Oh please Nick. Get a life…and maybe some balls along the way. And don’t call Liza or Karen. They’re looking for Real Men.
commented 2018-10-03 19:56:00 -0400
Justin Harbord,

LOL.

There is no nuance to the point, when I use your own direct quote where you state that you have done worse than what Kavanaugh is accused of. There is no other way to take that.

Go to work tomorrow and tell the women in your office that you have done worse than Kavanaugh and see how they respond.

Well, you’ve just reassured me that there’s still some pretty great gals around which is just terrific in my books. Jesus, gals like guys to be guys ..and guys like gals to be gals, no? What in the hell is wrong with that? Women have always ruled the world, for Pete’s Sake ( just seruptitiously!) and I’m OK with that. But Geez, we need some Real Men around to keep you guys honest!!

Liza,

It’s disappointing that as a woman, you think Ford is lying. We will never know what truly happened, but she was entirely credible in her testimony. Even Trump acknowledged that much. Something obviously happened to her.
