Priorities

Let me get this straight. Our Governor General is best buddies with an FLQ member and no one cares. She appears in a documentary toasting to Quebec independence and no one cares.

But she cracks a few jokes about Andre Boisclair and suddenly she has crossed the line?

  • Heh, it makes the separatists look bad. First they give Raymond Levesque double the prize for refusing the GG award (shades of Jean Chretien's "Le Gros Cadillac"). Now they act prissy and shocked over jokes about a politician's cocaine use.

    It seems shrill and insecure.

  • OH YES!!!! THANK YOU FOR SAYING IT!!!

    Bosclair can talk about how he's on drugs, but not the GG. No. If she talks about it, she's horrible. But if Bosclair talks about it, he goes up in the polls - so it must be acceptable.

  • The separatists can certainly dish it out but they can't take it. They can insinuate all they want about Jean yet try to mention the name Luc Doray and see how far it will take you. Doray, as you may know, was Boisclair's chief of staff and a cocaine user. He pleaded guilty to fraud charges related to his expense account as chief of staff, and the QC government is now trying to recover some $30,000 plus from him. Cocaine is an expensive drug, you see. Boisclair would not know this however as he made it clear that he never bought any.

  • So, Boisclcair is a cocaine user and a leach. Great leadership qualities.

  • The usual politics from Quebec.
    Paul Martin is a backstabber and a poor liar.
    Jean Chretien was a bouncer that got
    backstabbed.
    Jean Lapiere is a double turncoat and
    a poor liar.

  • Gargh! What is said at the Press Gallery Dinner IS NOT meant to be used for scoring cheap political points. If politicos insist on dissecting their light-hearted remarks and using them against each other, the tradition won't continue -- and we'll be stuck with politicans who will not go off script even for a night with the press gallery.

  • I can't understand how the GG's own sister can publicly criticise her. You stand up for your sister. Unless you feel she insulted something you feel passionately about - a free and independent Quebec. The GG's sister must be a strong separatist then. I wonder just how strong the rest of the family is in sharing that feeling. Maybe the allure of the post and its perks was a bit too strong for the GG to resist?

  • What's most bizare is how it took 2 weeks for Boisclair and others to complain about the issue...

  • Would you all be reacting with this sort of displeasure in the GG being raked over the coals on her stupid comment, if she had said that atleast Gurmant Grewal could count on the Indain spy vote? Or perhaps the CPC could count on the quariplegic vote?

  • What I find surprising is that people are more concerned over the GG's joke than the fact that a potential premier did coke.

  • Rarely is a agenda IWC advised a affluence IWC Watches , admitting they absolutely exist. But, there is just something about the analog movement with admirable adroitness of the locations and the Replica IWC face that makes affluence Replica IWC Watches tend to be analog, automated movements.
