Justin Trudeau tweets support for Couillard Liberals

Federal leaders have been shy about commenting on the current Quebec election campaign, but federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau posted several campaign-related tweets Thursday, in support of the Quebec Liberals and their leader, Philippe Couillard.

He does point out that "it's up to Quebecers the outcome of this provincial election" in one tweet, but 10 minutes later, he wrote "Quebecers want a better economy, not a third referendum", and a half-hour after that, he wrote, "my Quebec colleagues and I support federalism, @phcouillard and the #QLP"

      @drummergrl2011 Many Quebecers have been waiting for some sign of Federal support. Thanks Justin Trudeau for caring.

    If Trudeau tweeted his support for freedom of speech, some nationalists would say that he had no right to say that.

    One more "Quebecer" who is not a separatist.
    Nothing wrong with that!
