A Victory For The Right Wing

Click here for the cartoon associated with the text below (it won't be as funny after you read the text).
André Boisclair was elected leader of the Quebec-based "Parti Quebecois" separatist party last week, making him the first openly gay man to lead a Canadian political party.
The ironic thing is that Boisclair's victory is seen as a coup for the right wing of the PQ. Quebec is a very liberal place, so having a gay politician with a history of hard drug use is not considered radical. But a fiscal conservative committed to balanced budgets... well that's pretty unorthodox.
