Tonight is the watch the two-hour debate between Quebec's provincial election leaders, and the claws have already come out. Premier-hopefuls couldn't wait until 8pm tonight to start bashing each other.

Philippe Couillard, leader of the Liberal party, had some harsh words against Pauline Marois:

  • "If Madame Marois chooses that route, she's going to get it" & "If Madame Marois wants to have fun in the mud, she will be there alone. I won't go there."

Strange how Couillard is hating on Pauline for mudslinging...and yet is doing exactly that.

Pauline Marois would never be silent for too long, and has pointed out Couillard's suspicious friendship with Arthur Porter, and has taken an even more direct approach to hating on Couillard, equating him with the former premier of Quebec:

  • “I think we have in front of us someone who is like Mr. Charest: the same perspective, the same vision.”

Francois Legault of the CAQ didn't shy away from hating on Couillard a bit, to even things out, he said:

  •  "I've seen in the last few months that [Couillard] is not ready to govern."

This is only a sample of what the election leaders are saying behind each others backs. I hope it only ramps up when their together in person tonight.

Will you be watching the debate?

 

Monday is going to be a good day, as Quebec COVID-19 rules are going to slowly start to loosen up again, for what feels like the millionth time.

But during a recent press conference, Premier François Legault sounded rather optimistic about the province's current situation, saying that we have finally "left the tunnel," in reference to his frequent invocation of a "light at the end of the tunnel."

On January 25, Premier Legault announced a few limited reopenings and measure relaxations. Quebec gyms were not among them.

Though Quebecers will be able to eat in their favourite restaurant dining rooms as of January 31 and attend concerts as of February 7, Legault said gyms could come later as part of an as-yet-undated "third stage" of reopenings.

The light at the end of the tunnel is finally visible! Premier François Legault announced during a Tuesday press conference that in addition to dining rooms reopening on Monday, January 31, performance venues and cinemas throughout Quebec will also be opening their doors as of Monday, February 7.

In what Legault referred to as a "second phase," concert halls and theatres will be able to operate at a 50% capacity with a maximum of 500 people.

Quebec Gathering Rules Are Going To Ease Up Slightly On Monday

"If you were to have one word to hold on to today, it's the word mollo."

In a press conference on Tuesday, January 25, Premier François Legault announced a series of what he called "small" rule relaxations that will take effect on Monday, January 31, including a loosening of Quebec gathering restrictions.

Banned since late December, private gatherings will as of that date be able to consist of either two household bubbles or a maximum of four people from multiple different households.
