Quebec is a crucial battleground in this federal election. The general narrative has been that the New Democratic Party (NDP) stands to lose many – or even all – of its Quebec seats, with the Liberals, potentially seeing gains that could offset at least some of the losses they are expected to have elsewhere in the country. That perspective has shifted somewhat over the past few days with the Bloc Québécois (BQ) surging and the NDP experiencing a boost in polls across the country after Jagmeet Singh’s strong debate performances. The NDP is trying hard to hang on to their Quebec beachhead, while the Liberals and BQ are each fighting to turn these same seats.

To understand some of the motivations of key Quebec voters, Rupen Seoni used PRIZM QC, our unique Quebec-focused segmentation system, to give us some insights into where things stand in these key ridings.
