Je Me Souviens

In case anyone has forgotten about the more successful aspects of Chretien's post-referendum national unity strategy, today's polling numbers show the importance of the Clarity Act.

A murky question splits the province down the middle, a clear question leads to a confident no vote. More impressive, Quebecers themselves agree that there needs to be a clear question.

  • Let's not forget that the Clarity Act is essentially an adoption of a private member's bill, Bill C-341.

    The private member was Stephen Harper.

  • not to nitpick, but according to google, the only people who spell it "Quebequers" are

    a)posting on the conan o'brien messageboard

    b)saying shit like "The Quebequers are very similar to Hispanics" or "Why won't Quebequers vote for Harper? I hear he speaks excellent French"

    c)brockvoice message boards.

    all in all, 362 hits.

    289 000 for "quebecers"

  • OK - you've convinced me. If I knew how to do the squigly line bellow the c or accents, I'd go with quebecois...

  • CG: again, not to nitpick, but the "squigly line" below the "c", as is "ç", is called a cédille and there's no need to put one in "Québécois". It's "Québécois", not "Québéçois".
