“Justin Trudeau is really playing into his political future and his political life. In current opinion polls, we forget to be in the majority. To remain a minority prime minister, Quebec is its last bastion.”

“If it turns out that Justin Trudeau collapsed, that he was picked up, that he wasn’t up to the task or that energetic, it would spread across Canada that that’s what we think, Justin Trudeau is no longer working.”
