An outside view of Quebec’s election


A recent editorial in The New York Times casts an interesting light on Quebec’s recent election. The writer, Francisco Toro, makes some interesting observations most of which I agree with fully. the only sticking point is:

…Quebec needs a fresh start, and it is getting one.What it doesn’t need is to reopen the old, divisive debate on sovereignty. And with the PQ denied a majority, it probably won’t get that.

True, a referendum may never occur, but as we have seen before, the threat of one can be enough to make financial markets and investors jittery.
