But Pauline Marois lost the game to Philippe Couillard. By choosing to openly flaunt the card of an unwanted referendum and sovereign Quebec, she is caught in her own trap. And by inadvertently bringing to light the aspect of her privileged profile, she has fallen out among the province's populace.

Did the Ethnic Vote Crush Pauline Marois?

Rachel Décoste

Was the rise in voter turnout linked to an increase of immigrant and visible minorities voters? Was it the Charter or the spectre of another referendum for them to "steal" that drove them to the polls in record numbers? If Premier Marois had access to better polling data surveying minorities who make up a sizeable chuck of the electorate, would she have pulled the electoral chain to begin with? As pollsters drown in the sea of complacency and/or mortal fear of uncovering the uncomfortable truths, the necessary examination of voters will continue to falter.

Chow's Hong Kong Identity Politics Could Backfire

Mitch Wolfe | Posted 04.08.2014 | Canada Politics
Mitch Wolfe

In a move to counter Ford eating away at her base, Chow has tried to exploit her Hong Kong background- by reaching strangely all the way out to Hong Kong for the votes of Hong Kong residents with Canadian passports and property in Toronto. I believe that Chow's basic message of being a struggling immigrant has not resonated with her base or potential base.

In every election the same flags of fear are waved to scare the Quebecois into voting against the PQ. It's positioned as xenophobic and a threat to Canada. But is the Parti Quebecois really a racist body and a threat to our country? I say, "Vote PQ to save Canada."
