Oddly, Quebec is voting on Labor Day. That's going to save money, since folks have to get a half-day off to vote there. The polls closed an hour ago, but I haven't seen any results yet.
[Update 11PM-they're voting tomorrow; that's why the results are pokey. They aren't late, I'm a day early.]
However, this paean to voting from PQ leader Pauline Marios is worth taking to heart-
“I want to send a message to all young Quebecers – go and vote,” Marois
said. “Even if they decide to not vote for the Parti Québécois.”
And she added if they do vote, they can criticize their political leaders.
You still have free-speech rights even if you don't vote, but your moral standing to complain is weakened when you don't bother to vote. College kids tend not to vote but are the first to gripe at tuition increases, which proved incendiary in the last year in Quebec.
From the looks of things, the PQ is going to get close to a majority of seats with only about a third of the vote in a mostly three-way race; that mean's two-thirds will be in position to say "don't blame me, I didn't vote PQ."
