Macpherson: In politics, Quebec non-francophones don’t count
It’s electoral mathematics. There are simply many more francos than non-francos, controlling many more seats in Parliament and the Assembly.
“It’s because you don’t count.”
That’s what a francophone journalist told me back in 2003, after I remarked to him that the non-francophones who were the Quebec Liberal Party’s most loyal supporters were underrepresented in Jean Charest’s new Liberal cabinet.
