The Blame Game in Quebec is not Over

Forgive my pessimism, but there is a lot of blaming and not a lot of changing going on in the LPC(Q). Both the party officials and the Lieutenant are still at odds and nobody is doing anything to alleviate the situation.

Nobody can stop the Pierre-Luc Belleroses of the world who just want their name in the newspapers and will make up anything to make it happen. (Not to mention overzealous journalists and editors who will print anything.)

The party officials are trying to calm the situation down but what Steve Pinkus did last weekend accomplished exactly what he claimed to be upset about.

As for the Lieutenant, she should probably stop trying to save safe seats for her friends and try and keep whatever small amount of star Quebec candidates the Liberals still have left instead of ignoring people for months. Marc Garneau only got his seat by going to the press. Do Liberals want this to happen with the others as well?

If the party officials keep airing out their differences to the press, nothing will change.

If the lieutenant keeps stonewalling star candidates instead using them to try and gain some traction in Quebec, nothing will change.

Because both sides believe they are right, and have believed it for the past few months, nothing will change and the blame game in Quebec is far from over.

Strangely enough, I agree with a lot of what you say here.

Dion needs to put his foot down on this and get directly involved. Dion and his advisers also have to stop worrying about whether the candidates in the various ridings hold similar views or not to his, and get them in place.
