Election Fever Hits Quebec

Election Fever Hits Quebec

Jean Charest launched the election campaign earlier this week and will focus his campaign on the student tuition hike.

But, is this really what the elections are all about?

Pauline Marois started her campaign by stopping by Quebec City, Trois-Rivières, Joliette, and Blainville.

Her message: discard the Liberal government.

She hopes that the population of Quebec will harshly judge the PLQ and realise that the government is highly corrupt.

Mrs. Marois has been the PQ leader for two years and expects the election to be a good one.

The elections will take place on September 4th and will be crucial for Quebec’s future.

Jean Charest has been Quebec’s Premier for about ten years now and is up against a huge demand for change that he has triggered with the student tuition hike.

The start of the electoral campaign launched a violent protest in downtown Montreal.

The police definitely had their hands full with injuries and many arrests.

Thousands of protesters marched next to Mr. Charest’s office in Montreal, armed with their pots and pans to tell him that they were coming for him.

Certainly the elections will be difficult for Charest but he understands this movement, after all, we are in a democracy.
