What is a right-wing sovereigntist to do?
That question stared down Bloc Leader Gilles Duceppe during an interview with Montreal radio show host Paul Arcand, Monday morning.
Arcand insisted, "I've got friends who say they like the Conservatives' young offenders plan, who are right-wing, who say Harper is right on all of the issues, but who are sovereigntists. Why should they vote for you?"
Duceppe attacked federalists for failing to produce a new constitutional option for Quebec.
And, Duceppe said what's at play in the election is whether Stephen Harper forms a majority government or not.
He says as far as policy goes, the Bloc will choose to support or oppose the eventual government on a piecemeal basis.
Duceppe said he is "optimistic the Bloc will win a good majority of Quebec's 75 seats up for grabs."
