Is the Legault Popularity can be the result of an astroturf campaign.

I've been observing the Legault movement for quite a while and it look a bit weard First of all the mediatic visibility. Lot of time is gived to this movement especialy the owned by quebecor. This recommendation look too similair to the discourt holded by the patrona (boss alliance)

It does seem to have possible astroturf roots.  Therre's little else to explain why this party suddenly just happens to have over 30% support in the polls.

I wonder if Bouchard is playing some secret role behind the scenes.  His whole agenda since the Nineties has been to turn sovereigntism into a right-of-centre big business movement-kind of a Quebec equivalent of Ireland's Fianna Fail party(especially as that party existed in the Bertie Ahern "Celtic Tiger" era).

There's certainly no logical reason for a party that claims to be sovereigntist but also "pro-business" and, presumably, pro-austerity, to be climbing in the polls in QC.

Perhaps "Les Freres De Koch" have found some way to start working north of the border.

I predict that, if this party does make a breakthrough, it will come closer to being the second coming of the Union Nacionale than any other Quebec party ever could.

OK...the logo is a letter "c" that's stopped taking its medication.  Brilliant.

(before anyone objects to that, I myself take antidepressants.)

It's a half-eaten rainbow parfait ring!

...I think that logo has more distinct colours in it than the logos of every other political party to ever exist in Quebec do--put together.

Don't worry, it a running gag in quebec!
