What's the French word for "sorry excuse for a party"?
Curzi backtracked from suggestions a sovereign Quebec could strip West Island anglophones of their right to vote, saying that once Quebec became sovereign, all residents of the new country would automatically become Quebec citizens, with full voting rights.
In an interview with Gilles Proulx, a pioneer in shock-talk radio, Proulx called the West Island "Ontario," and said West Islanders would never accept a PQ proposal for Quebec citizenship before sovereignty.
"We can't change that with a magic wand," Curzi said. "If these people want to benefit, as long as we are a province, we can't do more.
"We can't take away their right to vote because that is a right we cannot control because we are still a province within the federation. Obviously, the day when the country is there, we will control citizenship, which will have more teeth, if I can dare to say so."
