Dominique Anglade is doing hara-kiri?

Pathétique is the only epithet to describe Dominique Anglade, who managed to lose the support of French-speaking voters. According to the latest Léger poll published in our pages today, only 7% of Francophones would vote for the PLQ.

She also refuses to worry about the depressing federal statistics showing another alarming decline for Francophones in Canada.

The chef further asserts that François Legault is above the law and does not govern for all Quebecers. How does she explain that her party is on the verge of collapse with this small 7% of French-speaking voters a few weeks before the election?


What future is announced for this party, which has lost its historic ability to unite Quebec nationalist federalists, Anglos and allophones?

His last statements on rue Saint-Denis in Montreal where a man fell under the bullets plunged us into discomfort. How can she do low-level political recovery, blaming François Legault for not being by her side and reacting only on Zoom?

Dominique Anglade is not the only party leader to criticize François Legault for his « inaction ». Eric Duhaime of the PCQ will not miss such an opportunity to shoot the head of the CAQ, but he knows that this violence cannot be resolved by increasing the number of 400 police officers, as he promised this week. In truth, no party leader is unaware that the current politicization of this burning issue is irresponsible.

To return to Dominique Anglade, we must highlight the career of this Haitian woman, born in Montreal, daughter of brilliant university parents, two political exiles who arrived in Montreal in 1969 and who died tragically during the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

Ms. Anglade held the position of president of the CAQ for a year and a half, but she was defeated as a candidate in the 2012 election. She then left active politics for the business world.


She made the leap into politics again in 2015 for the PLQ. Once elected, she was appointed Minister of Economy, Science and Innovation in the Couillard government.

She will then explain that she left the CAQ because she did not agree with its approach to identity and its vision of immigration. We therefore understand why this Quebecer chose to reject the nationalism of the CAQ to find herself the leader of a PLQ breaking with the French-speaking majority on the question of identity, immigration and language.

One can think that within the CAQ the very gifted Dominique Anglade would also have been appointed minister and would have had a brighter political future than the one she has at the head of a PLQ stripped after the passage of Philippe Couillard, the first anti-nationalist Liberal leader, one of his finest achievements since the Quiet Revolution. What a future, indeed, for the PLQ, deserted by the French-speaking voters and become the enemy of the linguistic laws and secularism!

Ms. Anglade has thus become an exile within the Liberal Party transformed into a refuge for Anglophones and allophones. A sad end to a political career, we can conclude.
