Working in Ottawa today -If in Quebec, vote early and vote often!

Good morning folks,

I will be working in Ottawa today and while I usually don't write a Pulp on Mondays, I figured I would write a a short one.

Today is Election Day in Québec and I encourage all to get out and vote early and vote often!

A very quick recap for you on the election running parties..

Pauline Marois and her PQ are running on the question of if the electorate would like a referendum on separatism and if the electorate would like public employed ppl to leave their religious artifacts at home or face firing.  Philippe Couillard and the Liberals thought they would lose right up until the referendum issue ended up on the platform and now can't believe their dumb luck.  For a bit they thought a majority was in store for them, but then Quebeckers started thinking about corruption and the Charbonneau Commission and what past evil doing by the Liberal in may reveal, and finally François Legault's Coalition Avenir Québec, the CAQ also known as the neither right nor left party is posed nicely to come in a solid third, maybe even second behind the Liberals if Legault's message of working for a stronger economy took root.  I appreciate that there are 16 other parties I only had a few minutes to type.

That's it for the recap, have a great day.
