Without the PQ, no emergency exit!

The autonomist desires of the CAQ and its leader vis-à-vis Ottawa are doomed to failure, CAQ nationalism being too soft.

Justin Trudeau showed his colors by saying that a greater number of caquists in the National Assembly will not alter his positions with regard to the functioning of the Canadian Federation.

Ottawa’s intrusions into the jurisdictions that come under Quebec, the misuse of the federal spending power and the apology for multiculturalism will continue despite the CAQ.

Even more alarming, Justin Trudeau does not intend to throw ballast on immigration control.

He even pushes the audacity to attack legally and politically the laws adopted by the National Assembly of Quebec.

The Prime Minister of Canada has no incentive to give in to the demands of the CAQ, because the latter has no answers to provide in the face of any refusal by Ottawa to respond to the demands of our provincial government.

The next Quebec election will be fundamental for the future of the Quebec nation. You shouldn’t close the door in your face!

The PQ necessity

Nationalism is popular and fuels aspirations for greater autonomy for Quebec.

The caquistes have reappropriated the concept that fueled the electoral speeches of the Union Nationale in the 1950s and 1960s. The slogan Equality or Independence, chanted by Daniel Johnson, surely made many people’s chests bulge, although none of these eventualities came true.

It is foreseeable that the same fate is reserved for the CAQ.

We should not count on the PLQ or QS to do better in terms of emancipation.

The historical positions of the PLQ classify them in the category submission to federalism.

As for QS, recent declarations on secularism and their ambiguous path leading to independence demonstrate above all an electoral concern. More than half of the people voting for QS are federalists and have nothing to wax nationalism about.

The PQ remains the only political formation present in the National Assembly that advocates true emancipation for Quebec.

It turns out to be the only party feared by the federalists and the central government.

Without a strong presence of the Parti Québécois in the parliamentary precincts, there is no significant gain to be expected in terms of increasing powers for Quebec!

Without detour

I find it hard to understand the enthusiasm for the CAQ and the policies of the 50s and 60s, because we are condemned to relive the same ineffective scenario.

Several readers favorable to the CAQ write to me paradoxically that the PQ is necessary.

They want to make it a spare wheel. Our electoral process is far from guaranteeing us that it will be in the trunk of the car.

For our existential security, it would be better to have the best tires on the axles from the start.

If the sovereigntist and separatist nationalists turned to the PQ, the chances of survival of the Quebec nation would be improved!
