With the province of Quebec in the run up to a contentious election, the Global Research News Hour takes a close look at the issues and dynamics of the election not getting sufficient airplay in the mainstream media.
Academic, former politician and author of "The New American Empire" and "The Code for Global Ethics" Rodrigue Tremblay joins us first. He believes the sovereignty question has been irresponsibly and dishonestly used as a polarizing force to the benefit of the federalist Liberals, that the Charter of Values which bans religious adornments by public employees on the workplace has been unfairly represented outside of Quebec, and how issues around corruption particularly in the Liberal party are being ignored. He also seems to find an influx of immigrants into Canada and Quebec as creating what he calls 'integration problems.'

Writer and community activist Stefan Christoff has a very different perspective. As far as he is concerned, the Charter of Values is racist and the main parties are not addressing the question of austerity which has mobilized tens of thousands of people in the streets in recent days and continuing through election day.
Election Day is April 7.
