LILLEY: Scheer worries for national unity under Trudeau

The latest polling in Quebec is showing the Bloc Quebecois rising once again.

At their height the Bloc held 54 seats after the 1993 election and the separatist party was actually the official opposition.

A combination of Stephen Harper’s hands-off policies towards the provinces and Jack Layton’s Orange Wave with the NDP in 2011 had all but eliminated the Bloc.

Now they are second in polling in Quebec and poised to win most of the seats outside of Quebec City and Montreal.

Western alienation meanwhile has hit record highs.

Across British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, 35% of voters said they would vote for a Western Canadian Party if that option were available — that beat every other option.

A strong majority in those provinces said they don’t feel Ottawa treats their province fairly.
