Mini Bush's Quebec power play may be backfiring

Charest testy as Quebec Liberals slip in polls.

The "brilliant" play to resolve the fiscal imbalance might be blowing up in Harper's face. In the short term, it might lead to a PQ government out of voter resentment against Charest's blatant tax cutting gimmick and the perceived interference in the Quebec campaign by Harper. Boisclair's playing it all up, to the hilt. Heading into the weekend before Monday's election, it's not a good story line developing.

Harper's handling of Quebec will come in for serious scrutiny if the PQ are elected on Monday.
