Elections: The Great Distortion


To tell you how there were no surprises in this election, Pierre Bruneau declared that the CAQ would form a majority government at 8:10 p.m.

When we hadn’t even received the quarter chicken thighs we had ordered yet.

As my sister told me: “Mr. Legault did not have time to do everything he wanted to do during his first term because of the pandemic. So he was given a second term so he could finish what he wanted to accomplish… »

It’s as if we were watching a feature film in a movie theatre, and a power failure had interrupted the projection.

We want to see the rest to know how it will end.

Will Leonardo DiCaprio marry Kate Winslet once the liner has arrived?


For the official opposition, the verdict fell 34 minutes later.

The money went to Dominique Anglade and the PLQ. Thanks to the Anglos on the island of Montreal, who continued to vote red despite Madame Anglade’s blunders on French courses in English CEGEPs.

All it took was for the sovereigntist Joker to rise a few points in the polls and for everyone to salute the excellent PSPP campaign for our English-speaking friends to take fright and run to take refuge behind the shield of Captain Canada.

It’s still amazing when you think about it…

These are the two parties that have stumbled the most during the campaign that find themselves on the two highest steps of the podium!

It is Ms. Anglade who finds herself leader of the official opposition… even though her party only convinced 7% of French-speaking voters!

And parties that have managed to attract 15% and 13% of the popular vote (which is very honorable) find themselves at the bottom of the barrel.

Only three deputies for the PQ and none for the Conservative Party of Quebec.

While the PLQ won about twenty seats with a similar percentage and much less support among French-speaking voters…

If there are still people who doubt the relevance of reforming our voting system, they need only look at the election results to be convinced.

There is something wrong with this system…


For Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, who saw himself as Leader of the Opposition, the evening was extremely disappointing.

The leader of Québec solidaire may have led a very good campaign and be devilishly charismatic, but his party has not succeeded in breaking through the kale ceiling.

For the middle class it tried to woo, QS remains a radical party.

Disappointment as strong among the PQ, who, despite the excellent campaign of their leader, have not succeeded in transforming their pumpkin into a carriage.

There were two big winners on Monday.

The CAQ, which is stronger than ever, despite the pandemic and the clumsy remarks of its leader on immigration.

And the campaigners for the reform of our voting system, who have convinced many voters of the justice of their cause.
