Are Anglophones ready to vote CAQ?
A few months ago when we asked Radio Noon listeners if they would consider voting for François Legault, nearly all our callers told us they would not vote for the CAQ.
They saw Legault as a separatist and didn't trust him when he said he would not talk about sovereignty.
Things have changed since then.
Today on Radio Noon, our callers said they are now much more open to the possibility of voting CAQ.
Robert Libman, the former leader of the Equality Party says Quebec Anglos should vote for the CAQ if they live in ridings where there is no danger of electing a PQ MNA.
Libman's party elected four MNAs in 1989 after the Liberals maintained a ban on bilingual signs despite a supreme court ruling saying they could be legal.
On Sunday the PQ admitted they had courted the CAQ's star candidate Jacques Duchesneau to run for them.
They said he turned them down because he's a federalist.
Listeners told us they are reconsidering their vote because a staunch anglo rights advocate like Robert Libman and a committed federalist like Jacques Duchesneau say it's okay to vote CAQ.
And top all that off with François Legault saying today in his home town of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue that he would vote "no" in a referendum, and some Liberals might have to work a little harder to get elected on Sept. 4.
