"... Boisclair ... can hardly be called a flaming lefty"
Sure he can ... though I suspect the flaming glow coming from his sexual orientation does tend to distract.
But, fortunately, apparently not with a considerable portion of the separtists' traditional voting block - LOL!

Dumont also picked up votes from Quebecers tired of the multicultural excesses of recent years in which the Quebec mainstream had been told to defer its traditions to those of new minorities.

The separatists ARE socialists. All they had going for them was their independence stance, which helped them pick up a number of voters from socially conservative Quebecois who wanted to send a protest message against Ottawa's overbearing interference in Quebec's affairs. Remove that and the broad appeal of the PQ evaporates. Two of Quebec's parties (the Quebec Liberals and ADQ) represent a different approach: free markets, small government and Quebec autonomy within Canada. That is the right prescription for change and for Quebec's future.

Quebecers going right wing, this is wonderful. They are staunch Catholics, so I can't see how many of the other parties fall into their ideological hemisphere.
