Canada Election – Quebec 1 October Vote All About Immigration

Although Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declines to comment on the issue that is dividing his nation, many of the 8 million residing in Quebec realize full well that immigration is what this election is all about.

For the first time in a decade, Quebec independence did not take first seat at the debate table, and a party other than the Liberals or the Parti Québécois might take power after 1 October.

The political party looking strong in the polls is the CAQ (Coalition Avenir Quebec), and the reason for them being neck and neck with Mr Trudeau’s Liberals is simply because they are daring to take a tougher stand on the issue than Mr Trudeau’s local liberal frontrunner, Mr Philippe Couillard.

Their CAQ leader, Mr François Legault, claims he will reduce the number of immigrants by 10,000 per year and introduce tests, both for ‘Canadian values’ and knowledge of French. The proposals are popular with locals and thus CAQ is riding high in the polls.

Mr Legault: “I think three conditions are important: finding a job, staying in Quebec; French; and values.”

“We have four big failures of the Liberal government for the last 15 years: too many (good) immigrants have left, too many don’t know French, too many didn’t pass a values test and too many are unemployed. After five years, the total is 14.1 percent, it’s triple the unemployment rate in Quebec.”

Most Quebeckers, just like the nationalist QAC, want to indeed limit immigration but the lackluster debate performance of the QAC leader, Mr Legault means that he has not been able to make a decisive lead from the liberal party.

Mr Jonathan Goyette, a 39-year-old computer analyst from Mascouche, is leaning toward the CAQ but would have switched leftward for an appealing leader. “We’ve been going back and forth between the PQ and Liberals, and it would be good to have a new party in power. A breath of fresh air could be good.”

“I would have liked to see someone like Jack Layton in this provincial election, someone with a human side who unites people. None of the leaders has that kind of charisma.”

Mr Anthony Bourdon from Montreal had at first fancied Mr. Legault but is now leaning Liberal again after seeing the debates: “I’d rather ride a bike that I know than buy a new one and not know what speed it’s going.”

He said the QAC leader “looks more like a business leader than the leader of a nation.”

If Canada doesn't begin to address this issue, they will become another EU. Trudeau is one great impostor. Canadians generally are very liberal and it would be easy for them to turn into EU countries that are traditionally liberal. Sweden would be a perfect example of what happens to liberal countries when they allow these 3rd world animals into their countries.

Every election since 2015 is about immigration

Legal immigration is fine and produces good citizens, mass refuggee resettlement floods countries with parasites that want the same conditions (living in the dirt & raping anything that moves) minus the constant war. But only the war that affects them not the type that affects the infidel!
