Bloc MP Loubier Sees Writing on the Wall

Yvon Loubier, the MP from Saint Hyacinthe-Bagot, has decided he will not run in the next federal election. Saint Hyacinthe was one of the ridings where Bloc leads were cut in half by the surging Tories in the last election.

In ridings like SHB and Repentigny, the Tories have a strong at picking up the seats, meaning the Bloc Quebecois will be fighting two federalist parties instead of one.

While it pains me to see the Tories winning more seats in Quebec, I am happy to see more people voting for a federalist party.

As the temporary ad hoc rainbow coalition hits 5920 days and counting, Quebeckers may be finally tiring of the Bloc. It will actually be interesting to see the Bloc have to fight more than 15 ridings next election. No matter the result, federalists win.
