The Nation Of Quebec Huh?

So our fearless leader Mr Harper has decided it would be a good idea to put forth a motion in Parliament declaring Quebec to be a "nation within a united Canada". Many thanks, Mr Harper, for opening up that can of worms again.

It's true that the topic of Quebec sovereignty hadn't just up and disappeared, but at least it had settled to a dull roar and that was something I think we all could have lived with. I am absolutely sick to death of this issue and the prospect of having to sit through yet another highly publicised political cock fight over a free and independant Quebec just makes my stomach turn. Especially since I plan on moving to that province this coming spring.

But for now, I'm not pissed off about the inevitable seperatist rhetoric. I'm pissed off that Harper assumed this was a move he had the authority to make. The man is nothing more than a stop-gap Prime Minister and he knows it. His party was not voted into power because a majority wanted them there, they were voted into power to send a message to a Liberal government drowning in scandal and corruption. A lesson the Democrats south of the border should take note of.

It seems little Stevie has gotten kinda big for his britches. Keep over-stepping those bounds big man. The more you do, the less likely you'll be sitting in that chair come the next election.

Is Quebec the place where everybody hunts baby seals?

I don't remember what province that happens in specifically.

But since I'm pissed off at them, I'm just gonna go ahead and say yes.

There is a whole lot of nothing going on here..all that we're talking about is symbolic recognition through a phrase and nothing teeth here, just politics.

Yeah there's never really been any teeth. That's the problem. How much longer are we going to have to watch these douchebags waste our time and tax dollars quibbling over something that anyone with an ounce of sense knows will never happen anyway?

We're losing the battle in Afghanistan and this is what our government chooses to beat their chests over? It's repulsive.
