Interesting to note...."right-wing" and "liberal" aren't words used together in my understanding. Can someone explain the difference?

Thanks Cal for the link to the Green Left article by Ash Pemberton. It wll be interesting to see what parties will join the coalition to form a Government.

Maybe in French right-wing can mean Liberal?? Otherwise I'd say those people (or at least the reporter) don't know Right-wing is the exact Opposite of Liberal (at least in America!)..maybe Quebec Liberals watch FOX News & used the old "bait & switch" to claim to be Liberals & then turned Reich-wing???

Just goes to show how the same language can mean different things in different countries.

Is this Liberal in the sense that so many communist countries have the word Democratic in the title?

Thanks for the post, anyway.
