Quebec Solidaire: Not Dead Yet
The upstart left-wing sovereignist party that contested its first election in 2007 will be back if an election is called in 2008. The party's co-leaders, Francoise David and Amir Khadir will run again in Gouin and Mercier respectively. The party has set some modest goals for itself: Increase its vote total from 3.7% to 5% and elect both David and Khadir. (Khadir was just 4%short of winning in Mercier in 2007).
