Peter Stockland, publisher of Convivium, featured on CBC Calgary to discuss Quebec election results
This morning Peter Stockland, publisher of Convivium and resident of Montreal, was featured on CBC Calgary's The Eyeopener to discuss what Quebec election results with host David Gray.
"It was a debacle for the PQ and it's going to take years for them to recover, if they ever do," said Stockland. "In this campaign, [Mme Marois] tried to play both sides against a kind of amorphous middle throughout the campaign, and she ended up, in a sense, losing contact with reality. She brought in an extreme corporate figure like Pierre Karl Péladeau, who's known as a very right-wing guy, into essentially a social democratic party and then had him—or he decided to—tout sovereignty at a time when they were trying to soft-pedal sovereignty ... There was a fundamental incoherence to what has been perceived as her strength: the ability to read the political winds."
