Terence McKenna: Quebec's winds of change - Quebec Votes 2012 - CBC News
As for the future, it is far from clear that even a PQ majority would mean another sovereignty referendum for Quebec, and another national unity crisis for Canada.
Former PQ premier Lucien Bouchard was very unhappy on the night of his majority victory in 1998 because he did not get over 50 per cent of the popular vote.
“How am I supposed to get over 50 per cent in a sovereignty referendum when I can’t get it now with far less at stake,” he asked his advisors. He never did call that referendum.
