Marois tells Canadians not to be afraid of election outcome

Don't be afraid.

That's what Parti Quebecois Leader Pauline Marois is telling Canadians when it comes to the result of next month's Quebec election.

Marois says relations with the rest of Canada will be very good even if her pro-independence party is re-elected.

The PQ leader also told a news conference in Montreal today that having Pierre Karl Peladeau as a party candidate is not a threat to her job and that she wants to be premier for the next mandate.

She also took a dig at former Liberal leader Bob Rae, telling him to mind his own business.

Rae said in an opinion piece on the Globe and Mail's website that a Quebec civil servant or trade unionist voting for Peladeau is akin to a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders.

    Her pants are on fire.

    The anti-Federal antics and rhetoric will just increase.

    Bob Rae can say whatever he wants Marois. It's still a free country - as long as you and your PQ party don't get in that is.

    Relations with Canada will be good????
    Gimme a break... if they win another mandate the PQ will pick every fight they can with the ROC to try and get "winning conditions"

    In fact, we could have winning conditions by making sure Pauline and the rest of the gang do not get elected. Then we will have winning conditions. Winning conditions for the citizens, not for that argumentative separatist myopic group of anglophobes and allophonbes.

    I guess nobody is allowed to have an opinion, especially this time when the truth hurts. The clan has always had the unions on their side but for some reason the jump into bed with the biggest union hater in Quebec. At this moment Peladeau is one huge anchor and she regrets making this move.

    Isn't she something? She's getting more aggressive & despicable as time goes on. Hard to believe this woman actually bore children ...... Poor Pauline, you should be worried about PKP - he'll bring you down with a smile.

    I will never believe what Pauline Marois says. On the night she was elected, I sat by the radio and listened to her tell English Quebecers "not to worry." She gave the impression that our rights would be protected. I actually believed her. She has lied repeatedly. My only hope is that the rest of the province wakes up before it is too late. Now she is telling people "not to worry," again. Are you kidding me? When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time!!!!!

    @Marois How about not telling us how to feel and YOU mind your own business?

    The Parti Quebecois often says that they have no lessons to learn from this or that, and that it's nobody else's business outside of Quebec, or that nobody can say this or that (Drainville and racism etc.) and now that Rae should mind his own business. Well, in Canada where people can say whatever they want, Rae is perfectly within his rights to speak about other Canadians and anything that is going on anywhere, especially when it concerns other Canadians. Actually, if anything, it is Marois who should not be attempting to stifle criticam commentary. Not yet and not outside of her domain.
