Royal Pain in the Ass
Vive Le Quebec Libre redux
PARIS — Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Quebec Premier Jean Charest have taken French presidential candidate Segolene Royal to task for saying she sympathizes with the idea of Quebec sovereignty.
The Socialist hopeful was asked about her thoughts on Quebec's national question after a short meeting with Parti Québécois Leader André Boisclair in Paris on Monday.
Ms. Royal, who has never visited Quebec, said the province and France have common values, including “sovereignty and Quebec's freedom.”
