As to the differences between the English and French ads, Mr. Bernier said there is a separate culture in Quebec and party ads must be specific
to that province. "We did that during the last campaign and we're doing that today, right now," he said. "I think it's important to have a campaign
in Quebec that is in line with the Quebec reality."

M. Bernier is correct. There is a separate culture in TROC, The Rest of Canada, English-speaking Canada. One where this slogan would not fly.

Avec les Conservateurs, le Québec prend des forces. (With the Conservatives, Quebec grows stronger.)
