The Quebec election earlier this month was certainly one for the history books. The Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) ended 48 years of alternation of political power between the Quebec Liberal Party (QLP) and the Parti Québécois (PQ), and for the first time in a generation, sovereignty was not a ballot issue.
However, historic does not equate to revolutionary. Even though the party was elected with the promise of change, the first CAQ government is shaping up to be as much of a continuation as it is a disruption from the status quo.
John Parisella, Senior Advisor, Marc Poisson, Director of Media Strategy, and Michel Rochette, Senior Consultant with NATIONAL Public Relations, recently presented their views on the Quebec election results at an event held at The Rideau Club in Ottawa. They shared these observations in an article that was published on iPolitics.
