Another Dipper to be Elected in Quebec

... as a Bloquiste.

Christelle Bogosta, who ran for the NDP in 2008 in the riding of Brome--Missisquoi and came in a relatively OK fourth with just over 9% of the vote, has apparently decided to run to become nominated as the Bloc Quebecois candidate in the riding, after an expected retirement by current MP, the 76-year old Christian Ouellet.

This comes on the heels of the fact that Bogosta was already the nominated NDP candidate, and the fact that the NDP just lost another former candidate recently, the much-touted Jean-Claude Rocheleau, who will be running to replace Francine Lalonde in La Pointe-de-l'Île.

As I said before, it's completely understandable. If I were a Dipper in QC, I'd look at the Bloc and say, hey, these guys agree with me on most stuff and they have an amazing organization that crushes everyone in their path. Why not join up? But it also speaks volumes considering how many Dippers talk about how well they're doing in Quebec to lose another candidate. Maybe the polls aren't showing everything that's reality there, hm?

  1. I'd vote Bloc in my riding if they were the best choice to beat Harper. ABC

  2. We cannot keep voting for parties we don't believe in to "stop" Harper. We need to vote our beliefs.
