Can someone please explain to me how a unilingual Anglophone from Ontario is ahead in the polls in Quebec?
Stronach winning battle for Quebec
Recent polls suggest that support among Conservatives for party leadership candidate Belinda Stronach is strongest in this province.
In a survey conducted Feb. 3-19 by Ipsos-Reid for the Globe and Mail and CTV, 44 per cent of Conservative supporters in Quebec preferred Stronach for the party leadership.
Stephen Harper, leader of the former Canadian Alliance, had the support of 24 per cent, and Tony Clement, former Ontario Conservative cabinet minister, had 16 per cent.
The only possible solution I can come up with is that there is so few Conservative members in Quebec that to convince 44% of them to vote for a unilingual leader only requires deep pockets on the part of the candidate.
