Well, well: the Dion Effect in Québec !!!

Would you look at that: Here are the results of the first poll conducted here in Québec since Stéphane Dion won the Liberal Leadership. The Poll was conducted by Léger Marketing for TVA and Le Journal de Montréal (all of them sorta-separatist leaning):

Bloc Québécois: 37% (-2);
Liberals: 35% (+9);
Tories: 17% (-3);
NDP: 6% (-4).

Everyone went down - Except for us grits of course (+9)!!!!

Of course, there's always a Convention Bump (aka the Honeymoon). Still, the naysayers, the pundits and the self-proclaimed nationalist intelligentsia might want to revise their position. That's right, they're the ones who claimed that Stéphane Dion did not stand a chance in hell of winning the grit convention. They were proven wrong.

Only Yesterday, Bernard-he-of-the-red-rag-Landry declared that Dion's victory was a great step towards separation! He will be proven wrong as well!

For the first time over 2 years, the Liberal Party of Canada gets 35% here in Québec.

That TVA journalist, Paul Larocque, calls it L'Effet DION. My old Mom said "it's only a start!"

Wag on,

TVA and Le journal de Montréal are owned by Quebecor. Quebecor own's Sun Media. I'd hardly call them seperatists. Not even sorta.

The BQ went down by 2%, which is less than the margin of error. So it is just as likely that the popularaty of the BQ went UP after the Liberal convention!

Well...the BQ lost 2% - ok - in the margin of error.

Grits gained 9% - well over that margin of error. And, BTW, I did say that we benefited from the convention bump.

As for the Québecor-Péladeau Empire ownership of TVA, Le Journal de Montréal and Sun Media, I stand by what I wrote: they are separatists. Do your research.

Take care,

Le Journal de Montréal is definitely separatist in its outlook. Furthermore, Jean-Marc Léger, the president of Léger Marketing, is himself an avowed separatist.
