Another Péquiste kisses off the PQ.
In a letter to La Presse, Pierre Marc Johnson -- René Lévesque's successor as Quebec premier and PQ leader -- has announced his support for Raymond Bachand, the PLQ's ex-Péquiste candidate for the Dec. 12 by-election in Outremont. He also pulled a Bouchard and announced that increasing productivity should be Quebec's number one priority, not a fourth referendum (counting Charlottetown).
It does seem like some major political shift brewing in Québec... If it wasn't for the perversion that was the Sponsorship Scandal, I really wonder what would be happening in the province?
