Oi! Thump! Election Guide: Part the Second.
Ladies and Gentlement, we give you:
The Bloc Quebecois
Ah, the first of the big boys. The pro-separatist mob have a virtual card on their website which portrays, apparently, a drunk violinist voting. Which tells you a lot right there. Anyway, still beating the drum for Quebec independence, this lot are looking to do fairly well in this election, because of Quebecois anger at the Liberals over the Gomery...zzzzzzsnortzzzzzzzhuh? What? Anyway, best they can hope for is Official Opposition, and even that seems unlikely this time. They may get a certain chunk of the balance of power again, though.
If this party were an animal, it would be: This guy, but with a gun (does that count as an animal? We neither know nor care).
Position on environmental concerns? Not really a priority...
Attitude towards our friends to the South? They're pissed over the secret CIA flights, but it's hard to say whether they're more pissed at the Americans or at the Liberals.
Percent likelihood that they'll try to repeal gay marriage? 0%. Socially restrictive legislation will not win you votes in Montreal, plus this is yet another issue which is not high on the BQ list of priorities.
Is Oi! Thump! voting for them? Once again, a moot point. However, even if we were in Quebec, the answer would still be "no." We like Canada.
Next up, it's the Canadian Action Party!
