Election 2019: Once all but dead, Bloc Québécois is back on its feet

  Election 2019: Once all but dead, Bloc Québécois is back on its feet “Good news!” Yves-François Blanchet exclaimed in a tweet last week, linking to a news article about a Léger poll suggesting his Bloc Québécois had overtaken the Conservatives to reach second place in Quebec, behind the Liberals. Clicking through to the story revealed the Bloc and Conservatives were only one percentage point apart . Clicking through to the story revealed the Bloc and Conservatives were only one percentage point apart . And the Liberals were still comfortably ahead.

Premier formally apologizes to Indigenous Peoples in Quebec

  Premier formally apologizes to Indigenous Peoples in Quebec QUEBEC — Premier François Legault has formally apologized to the Indigenous Peoples in Quebec for systemic discrimination at the hands of public service providers. Rising in the National Assembly to make a rare solemn declaration, Legault said the Quebec state did not do enough to help the community — “a situation that is unworthy of Quebec society.” “As a result, I offer members of the First Nations and the Inuit in Quebec the most sincere apology from the whole Quebec state,” Legault told a silent National Assembly. “The Quebec state failed in its duty to you. Today it asks for pardon.

But, since that is nothing but a dream for right now, the best thing you can do is commemorate that special time in our history.

Which is why the Ville de Québec is now going to be selling the iconic benches from the Colisée Pepsi to super fans and collectors alike.

Some 500 people have already laid claim on theirs, according to the Montreal Gazette, but that still leaves about 3,500 up for grabs.

The city is selling the seats for $30 each, as pairs, and if you're looking to really create a collector's item, you can also get the bench signed by a former Nordiques player.

To have your bench signed you'll need to dish out an extra $25, but those proceeds will be going to charity.

These days it's not uncommon to see the benches of the old Forum, the arena where the Montreal Canadiens used to play, perched against the wall in a pub or barber shop.

Fournier: The Conservatives have fallen behind the surging Bloc, cutting the odds of seat gains needed to win the electionFor the first three weeks of the campaign, Blanchet toured Quebec and was pretty much ignored by all other federal leaders. It was not necessarily an unsound strategy: why give attention to the Bloc if it is just going to rile up Quebec sovereigntists? Best not to poke the sleeping bear, Liberals and Conservatives alike appear to be thinking.

So, now, les super fans d'hockey are going to have a chance to double up their memorabilia by adding some benches from the Nordiques' arena as well.

The benches seen in the photo above (and in the lower half of the cover image) are plastic blue seats that will be re-used by "municipalities, schools and other institutions," according to the Gazette.

The blue benches also outnumber the white benches significantly, at 11,000, meaning they are also far less rare.

The blue seats also were not part of the stadium when it was inaugurated in 1949, so they're obviously not as worth collecting.

Odds of a minority government rise, Liberal chances drop as Bloc surges in polls

  Odds of a minority government rise, Liberal chances drop as Bloc surges in polls Gains by the Bloc in Quebec are erasing the Liberals' enduring seat advantage over the Conservatives. But in the rural regions of Quebec and the francophone areas in and around Montreal, the Liberals had been banking on winning seats with relatively low shares of the vote, benefiting from a vote split between the Conservatives, Bloc and New Democrats.That logic no longer holds now that the Bloc has moved into first place among francophones and (as a consequence) in the regions that were being targeted by the Liberals. That has the potential to paint dozens of seats Bloc blue rather than Liberal red.

To purchase one of the white benches that are for sale, head to the Ville de Québec website here.

The sale is happening on October 19th and 20th and individuals will be allowed to purchase up to 12 benches per person... so consider creating that mini-theatre in your living room you've always dreamt of, and make it extra special with these historic benches!

In another turn down Quebec sports memory lane, the dream of a baseball stadium is being talked about yet again for the Montreal area.

This time, the proposition is to put a stadium in Pointe-Saint-Charles where there is currently some federal land up for grabs.

Some disinterested parties claim that land is meant to be used for public good, not a stadium with luxury real estate attached, but there's no denying that sports can play a great part in the livelihood of a city or borough.

But the other major question is how to get a stadium amount of people in and out with such minimal access, to which those involved cited the R.E.M train.

Details on that when they arise!

How Justin Trudeau held on: The story of a gruelling, messy campaign .
The path to a Liberal minority was paved with low points and sloppy moments. In this election, there were no undiluted victories.But it wasn’t only the numbers that made the comparison unwelcome to Liberal operatives who were pushing back against the narrative that Canadians were seeing a diminished Trudeau this time out. That Brampton rally in ’15 came after his Liberals had soared to first place in the polls from third at the start of the race. His jabs in the leaders’ debates had knocked his more seasoned adversaries, Stephen Harper and Tom Mulcair, back on their heels.
