  1. The CAQ is center right or at least as right as you are going to find in Quebec

  2. The CAQ believes in small federal government and strong provincial governments similar to western conservative voters

  3. The CAQ describes itself as nationalists and believe separatism is basically a lost cause

  4. The CAQ has been very successful at targeting the ridings it needs to win elections from the Liberals and from the PQ

  5. The CAQ is the only party in Quebec to argue against equalization payments

  6. The CPC hasn't pulled more than 12 seats in Quebec since 1988 (63 seats prior to their creation of the block only once they cracked 10 since)

The reality is that the ROI on running in Quebec is dreadful. Allowing the CAQ to create a federal wing to compete with the BQ would likely result in seats being pulled from the BQ and from the LPC. At a risk of 10 seats the CPC could easily find itself with a party they can actually partner with and form a viable coalition with that is closer to its existing platform than any other viable party. The CPC saves itself the cost of running in 78 seats with a possibility of winning 10 of these seats.

What value does the CPC gain from contesting ridings in Quebec?
