French-Speaking Quebec Resists Immigration, Wokeism

The September 20 Canadian federal election has been widely derided as a remake of the 2019 election: Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau failed in his gamble to win a majority, finishing essentially unchanged with 159 seats (33.12% of the vote) in the 338-seat House of Commons; the Conservatives are stagnant with 119 seats (but with 34.3% of the vote—the second time running they have exceeded the Liberals). No-one dared campaign on Canada’s out-of-control immigration, but Maxine Bernier ‘s splinter People’s Party of Canada’s platform did politely call for moderate restrictions and was rewarded with an increase to 4.95% of the vote (but no seats—another fluke of Canada’s first-past-the-post electoral system, it’s as if the U.S. was governed from the House of Representatives). However, readers will be delighted to learn that my home province of Quebec, dominated by the vast majority of Canada’s French-speakers, showed a commendable resistance to the Anglosphere curse of Wokeness.

The separatist Bloc Québécois now holds 34 of Quebec’s 75 federal seats. Quebec’s provincial premier François Legault, leader of the soft-nationalist Coalition Avenir Quebec, had publicly called for a minority Conservative government, with a strong Bloc Québécois deputation that could hold it in check [Legault says minority government better for Quebec, calls NDP, Liberals dangerous’, by Jacob Serebrin, Toronto Star, September 28, 2021]. Trudeau, like his father, is a hardcore centralizing Leftist and believes that the more power the central government holds, the better. Most of the rest of Quebec’s seats are held by Trudeau’s Liberals, whose power base is Quebec’s dwindling English-speaking minority and, significantly, newly-arrived immigrants.
