Reproduced here from the Reuters Story:
A CROP poll published in the Montreal newspaper La Presse put the support for the Liberals at 35 percent, with 32 percent ready to back the Parti Quebecois, and 18 percent backing the right-wing Action Democratique du Quebec.
Too close to call, which makes me wonder about Charest doing silly stuff like explicitly mentioning Parti Quebecois leader Andre Boisclair's past cocaine use. Under the circumstances this comes off as a gratuitous, Harper-style smear, and once again I have no idea why a Premier (any more than a PM) would stoop to hurling this kind of mud themselves. That's what you have people like Ezra Levant for (or whoever functions as his Quebec equivalent).
It is pretty clear that Harper had a say in the timing of this particular Quebec vote. I wonder if his team is not dictating some of the tactics as well. I say this because Tory-made plans have a tendency to fly off the rails and end in disaster.

I think that would be the tire fire in St-Amable. If it's still going and spewing toxic fumes into the atmosphere after all these years, everyone's gotten so used to the stink they don't even notice anymore.
...seriously, there is only one constituency in Canada that can produce an Ezra Levant.

Is it mud slinging and smearing to mention a fact (actually, it was Charest's deputy premier who made the comment) that Boisclair himself has acknowledged as true? That's a bit of a stretch, no?
No, because the matter has been out in the open for a long time and,presumably, accepted by the Quebec people.
how wonderful it would be for this harper gov. to fall before the planned budget and put a screw into all their plans....granny
"Tory-made plans have a tendency to fly off the rails and end in disaster."
So you finally found out it was us who planned Paul Martin's campaign in the last election.
We thought it was still part of our secret agenda.
You are so very, very smart for connecting the dots.
The election campaign is going to be really exciting.
I agree it is way too close to call a shot right away.
This is funny; a LIBERAL makes (or threatens to make) personal attacks against another politician, and you of course have to refer to it as a Harper-style smear.
Why wasn't Harper's comment a Charest-style smear, or a Liberal-style smear? You know, "scary Stephen Harper, he'll eat your babies after the soldiers come to town. He will, honest, we can't make this up."
