PQ Stands Behind Boisclair...

...all the better to knife him in the back.

A few interesting excerpts from the story:

[Boisclair] argued that the Charter of Rights and Freedoms was non-negotiable and should be the guiding principle in dictating what minorities, religious or otherwise should be allowed to do. "Reasonable accommodations of minorities should not impede on fundamental values such as the equality between men and women," Mr. Boisclair said.

Great to see the PQ embracing Pierre Trudeau's Charter which was "imposed" on Quebec, isn't it?


The article goes on to speculate about a February election call for a March 26th vote...six days after the federal budget comes down. If that's the case, one imagines Harper has given Charest the nudge nudge wink wink that he's going to be very happy with Flaherty's budget. Toss in the speculation about federal elections and that could make for a very interesting week in politics.

  • Quebec has its own Charter of Rights and Freedoms. He was most likely referring to this one. The Quebec Charter is more strict than the Canadian one.

    RIP Multiculturalism

    After living a wretched 30 plus year existence Official Multicultarism started to cough and sputter when the far left, radical PQ undermined its core values. No longer would foreign cultures be allowed to import their inherent biases and paternalistic tendencies under the guise of "moral relativism".

    Jack Layton upon hearing the news started to turn slowly in a circle seemingly unable to locate the prevailing sentiment, local reports now indicate he is turning quite quickly and muttering to himself.


    Newly minted Liberal leader Stephane Dion released this statement:

    " all newcomers can be made to become acceptable if they agree to reecognize that in Canada they obligate to kyoto's goals"

    Many immigrants have been seen carrying frisbees in their mouths and peeing on fire hydrants.


    The MSM printed yet another story describing Dion's green scarf while trying to decipher what the hell he was talking about.

  • Alex; I wasn't aware of that but you may be right.

    In which case, I guess this becomes a post on election spec in Quebec.
