MIREMS' spotlight on the Quebec Provincial election continues:
Quebec elections: Issue of independence absent this time
An opinion piece in Mississauga's Canadian Asian News:
Summary: The Quebec elections are approaching fast and the more than two dozen political parties of Quebec are hot on the campaign trail. Only about half a dozen parties, however, are seriously contesting on issues like good governance, better economy, improved health care and better immigration policy. Looking at the trends of some recent polls, of all the political parties contesting in the Quebec elections, the Coalition Avenir Quebec (CAQ), the Quebec Liberal Party (QLP) and Quebec solidaire (QS) will grab most of the seats in the 125-seat Quebec National Assembly. The most interesting thing in the Quebec election this time is that the issue of Quebec independence is not on election platform for any contesting party. This is a healthy sign. Quebec, in spite of being bilingual, wants to stay within the Canadian federation! (22/09/2018).
Members of the Haitian community should vote in upcoming Quebec elections
Montreal's CFMB 1280 Pitit Kay twice-weekly talk show reports:
Cross-cultural translation: The columnist urges members of the Haitian community to vote in the upcoming Quebec elections, and to support candidates of Haitian origin. Greater representation of Haitian-Canadians on the Quebec political scene will result in the needs of the Haitian community being taken into account in the decision-making process.
