Scheer's Conservatives target Bloc Québécois votes to make gains in Quebec - 2019-09-09
His speech, given last week at a rally in Laval, Que., could be a sign of things to come as political parties jostle for Quebec's 78 ridings. Some races are shaping up to be tight, with Liberal, Conservative, Bloc Québécois and NDP candidates all in play.
Scheer's road to government doesn't necessarily run through Quebec, but a source within his party says the Conservatives are targeting strategic seats in the province, believing that they can capitalize on success the party has enjoyed in and around Quebec City.
While the election has not been called yet, early pre-campaigning indicates the party is looking to attract sovereigntist voters who might otherwise vote Bloc.
