The beautiful big ship of Pierre Poilievre

The only possible strategy for Pierre Poilievre with the Quebecers is to intoxicate them with praise and sweet words to convince them to come aboard the beautiful big ship he is building for them.

Last Friday we heard from the leader of the Quebec Conservative Party. To say that Poilievre is not a good communicator would be lying. He is excellent. He is fluent in French like no other person at the head of the Conservative Party since that party’s “post-Mulroney” revival.

He dared to boast about the tenacity of Quebecers to protect our Bill 101, which has already been undermined by Ottawa’s paid courts.

What will he do when faced with the Supreme Court’s condemnation of Bill 21?

Words words…

Meanwhile, François Legault said nothing, as usual.

The CAQ continues to lower the bar.

So, Poilievre just has to fill us with words.

He invites us to the table and tempts us with his praise, but we know very well that there will be no food to eat.

The cutlery will be magnificent, but the plates will be empty.


Poilievre praises the tenacity of Quebecers to defend their language and culture… but their courts will condemn laws 21 (on secularism) and 96 (new version of law 101).

And English Canada’s hatred of these essential projects in Quebec will leave Poilievre no choice but to tame these Quebecers with legislative whips.

When Stephen Harper or Erin O’Toole showed themselves open to Quebec’s demands, Quebecers did not reward them at the polls…

To this electorate as coherent as a pickle, we should not give anything concrete: just words, to deceive them.

If Pierre Poilievre summons Mes Aïeux and Lucien Bouchard, rest assured that it will be to put Quebec in its place later.
