Actor Pierre-Luc Brillant, who invested as a Parti Québécois candidate in the Montreal riding of Rosemont, believes it’s time to review our relationship with political polls. The Parti Québécois could be surprised, especially if its leader gets enough vision, he hopes, too.
Posted at 8:58 pm yesterday.
On Thursday evening, before speaking to a packed house at the Petite-Côte community centre, attended by several party candidates, Pierre-Luc Brillant said he expected surprises in the next election.
By talking about polls, it’s like putting it in people’s heads that life is a poll,” he said. “I was talking to Alexis [Brunelle-]Duceppe (Bloc Quebecois MP in Lac-St-Jean riding), and he was at 8%. [dernières] Elections [fédérales] “, he underlined in a press scrum shortly before his speech.
According to him, polls do not take into account certain local dynamics.
We should stop raising this as scientific proof that such a candidate is at the bottom of the scale when experience has shown us that this is not true, and in many cases it is not.
“In Rosemont, I’m going to make a prediction: Pierre-Luc will win,” Parti Québécois leader Paul St-Pierre-Plamonton said as he spoke.
Pierre-Luc Brillant believes he can surprise his leader and that the party’s poor results in the polls are due to a lack of visibility in the media during the pandemic.
Philippe J., designer of the Qc125 polling coordinator, was present as an observer at Pierre-Luc Brillant’s investment. Fournier insisted on defending the analysis of polls that made him his bread and butter in recent years.

“Information is still information and polls during election campaigns are the only objective or at least scientific information about the state of the race. The rest is spin. “He insists on using this expression, which is widespread in the political world, to refer to the narrative that parties are trying to establish.
The riding of Rosemont had long been a PQ stronghold until party leader Jean-François Lisée was defeated in the 2018 general election at the hands of reclusive Vincent Marisal.
The latter was elected in Rosemont with 35% of the vote, 2,500 votes ahead of Jean-François Lisée who received 28%.
Born in 1978, Pierre-Luc Brillant began his screen career at an early age. He acted in many films including Crazy and, more recently, The disappearance of fireflies And There is no chicken in my cabin.
