Of course if economic problems continue in Quebec, wouldn't that ultimately give the PQ the support they need?


folgore

Probably not, as long as they are in Canada equalization payments keep them on the hook, would a person on welfare vote to leave the payments?

The PQ have been in power a couple of times and actually run a pretty good provincial government when not trying to have a referendum.

Harper has managed to alienate them (and everyone else except his base) but perhaps in this case that is a good thing?



In the 2012-2013 year, the following provinces will receive equalization payments:[4]
Quebec ($7.391 billion)
Ontario ($3.261 billion)
Manitoba ($1.671 billion)
New Brunswick ($1.495 billion)
Nova Scotia ($1.268 billion)
Prince Edward Island ($337 million)
