For Justin Trudeau, the Liberals’ chief, the are even higher, now that the Phillipe J. Fournier polls show that they are the favorite.
It’s a week into the election campaigns, and polls show that Trudeau might just have an opening, now that support for the Bloc Quebecois has waned in just a matter of weeks.
The Bloc’s leader Yves-Francois Blanchet was in the Saint-Hyacinthe area on the 22nd of August to roll out the party’s election machine.
They party promises that it will fight for health workers and increase green spending in the province of Quebec.
McGill’s political sociologist, Daniel Beland, stated that The Blocs are aligning themselves with the ideology of Francois Legault, who happens to be a nationalist. He added that Legault’s criticism of the Prime Minister two years ago over his take on Bill 21 was the platform upon which the party won its 32 slots.
Legault has been quite throughout the campaigns, and the Liberals are hopeful it shall remain so until the polls close.
Polls indicate that the conservatives and the NDP will have a tough time making progress in this election cycle. Still, Erin O’Toole, the Conservative leader, went to Quebec to pitch his ideas.
