Queen's University expert comments on Quebec election
Queen’s University expert André Juneau is available to talk about the Parti Québécois leader and Québec Premier Pauline Marois setting the date for a Québec election.
Polls indicate that the PQ is in a position to move from a minority government to a majority. Marois has yet to commit to holding a referendum if she wins the majority.
“A referendum following the next election is not a certainty, even if the PQ wins, which is not a certainty either,” says Mr. Juneau. “If it does win however, federalists forces should assume there will be a referendum and get ready.”
Mr. Juneau (who speaks French and English) is a Fellow of the Institute of Intergovernmental Relations at Queen’s University (a centre for research on all aspects of federalism and intergovernmental relations).
Please note that Mr. Juneau is currently in Ottawa.
