Atwood lauds Duceppe
Famed Canadian author, Margaret Atwood, says if she lived in Quebec, she would vote for the Bloc Québécois.
During the speech, Duceppe blasted Stephen Harper for cutting funding for arts and culture. He says more than a million Canadians work in the arts.
Atwood inspired a round of applause for Duceppe's remarks, and afterwards told reporters she hopes the Bloc is successful in defeating as many Conservative candidates as possible in Quebec.
Asked if she lived in Quebec, would her own vote go to the Bloc, Atwood said, "Yeah, absolutely. Without a doubt."
