Has Louis Lost Liberal Quebec ?

OUTSIDE Quebec, Ottawa’s recent income-tax concession may not sound like much of a story. In fact it’s the latest installment of the biggest story in Canadian politics for years—a story that conceivably might end with the collapse of the Liberal Party in that strongest of all its strongholds, Quebec.
