Opinion: Federal election 2019: The Bloc is back. Get used to it

That Quebeckers have switched federal parties again is hardly the surprise of the century

From Konrad Yakabuski: 'The party rose from its deathbed to finish first among francophone Quebec voters on Monday, proof both of Mr. Blanchet ’s unsuspected political smarts and the enduring strength of Quebec nationalism.' elxn42

That Quebeckers have switched federal parties again is hardly the surprise of the century

This marks the fifth federal election in a row in which the Conservatives blew their prospects for a breakthrough in Quebec because of their own mistakes. Early campaign polls showed the party poised to double its seat count in the province from the 11 ridings it held at dissolution. But after a cringe-worthy performance by Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer in the first French-language televised debate, in which he refused to acknowledge his personal views on abortion, the Conservatives dived in the polls.

The Liberals had been banking on the collapse of the NDP’s remaining support in the province to build on the 40 seats the party held at dissolution. Instead, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh surprised everyone with strong performances in both French-language debates. NDP support rose – not enough to save the party’s 14 Quebec seats, but enough to deprive the Liberals of victory in tight multiparty races.

For now, however, the Bloc is back. And the rest of Canada better get used it.
