What He Said
Instead, I invite everyone to take a look at Paul Wells who, as usual, is bang on. Oh, and so I don't have to post a link to it later, go visit Andrew Coyne's site (he's baaaack!) since I know he's going to have something good to say when he gives his two cents on this tomorrow.
UPDATE: Gerry Byrne clarifies everything:
At the other extreme, Newfoundland MP Gerry Byrne, another Ignatieff supporter, said recognizing Quebec as a nation is no big deal. He said Acadians and aboriginal peoples are routinely called nations, so why not a province? Indeed, why not his own province?
"We are a nation of nations so I don't really see this as a thin edge of the wedge issue," Byrne said in an interview.
He noted that Newfoundland and Labrador "was actually a nation until 1949" when it joined Canada. And he wouldn't rule out recognizing Ontario or other provinces as nations as well.
UPDATE: PDO breaks down the actual resolution which was passed in Quebec. And Coyne's column can be read here.
