Lise Ravary (National Post): The PQ’s next false prophet


In a blog earlier this week entitled “The perils of optimism,” [Lisee] reminded party members that steady support for sovereignty does not exceed 28%.

He wrote: “Nine months ago, in [the April 2014 provincial general election, a tough conversation took place between the electorate and our party. It ended on a clear rejection of the possibility of holding a referendum in the short term and a worrisome disavowal of our party by the youth of Quebec.

Fearing that PKP’s stupendous popularity will lead militants to disregard the facts, he added: “By dint of talking amongst ourselves, we sovereigntists tend to translate our hopes into certainties and to give more credit to what we want to hear than to what we actually hear."
