that the Liberals leaked a memo about how the Liberal outlook is grim in Quebec? This is precisely the message they want to get out – and that Duceppe is kindly helping the Liberals deliver.
Quebec voters have always been the most strategic voters in Canada. They have constantly demonstrated that they will not let ANY party or leader get too big for his/her boots. So for the Liberals this may in fact be the hail mary strategy – convince everyone that the Bloc is going to win an unprecedented number of seats in Quebec and sit back and hope that voters moderate that in their favour.
Goodness knows they can’t actually get their own message out, so this could be the only option at this point for the Liberals in Quebec.
