QS eyeing big gains tomorrow night

Québec solidaire says it is looking to build on a strong campaign tomorrow night.

The party, still a distant fourth in the polls, thinks it has a good chance of doubling the number of seats it won in 2012, from two to four.

In the east downtown riding of Ste-Marie-St-Jacques, Manon Massé may displace the PQ's Daniel Breton.

While over in the city's Villeray district, Andres Fonticella is hoping to win Laurier-Dorion away from the Liberals.

At a morning press conference, party spokesperson Francoise David said it was obvious that Québec solidaire benefitted from Pierre Karl Péladeau joining the PQ as a star candidate.

"I think the effect was a kind of polarization," she said. "Around him, and around the symbol that he represents."

David added that the avowedly sovereignist Québec solidaire is the only party that has not been tainted by allegations of corruption

    I love that comment...never been tainted by corruption...LOL! There is no point in trying to pay off a politician who cannot do anything for you so of course there has been no corruption in QS. They have never been corrupted by power either and chances are pretty good that they will never have to worry about either happening any time in the foreseeable future. If they are able to gain 2 seats per election, they will be in a position to gain power in about another 25 elections or so. I wish them luck.

    It is hard to fall when you have never walked.
