Who Voted in Quebec? A Joint Le Devoir/NFB Gives Portraits of 30 of Them

A fascinating look at Quebec voters done during the recent election campaign. There are 30 of them, one for each day that Le Devoir published during the campaign.  It's an exercise that's worth doing elsewhere, it seems to me.

That's Evan to the left, who lives in Berthierville, a small town on the north shore of the St. Lawrence about 100 km from Montreal.  To access his explanation of who he would vote for, you have to guess.  I thought it would be the right of centre Coalition pour l'avenir du Québec.  My reasons were that he just looked too straight arrow and came from such a small place, that he probably would tip to the right.  But to my delight he says at the end of his little interview that he voted from the left wing Québec Solidaire!
