What's the French word for "sorry excuse for a party"?

It's kind of refreshing to see a party in worse shape than the Liberals:

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."

  • The question of the new law being proposed is in regards to immigrants linguistique capapility, so I don't know how the anglophones got mixed up in this. The french word is ''Orchid'' a shitty club in MontrĂ©al.

  • CG,

    Thanks for posting this. Anglophones do indeed have cause for concern.

  • Worse shape than the Liberals? Umm, the PQ would have a legitimate shot at a government, were an election called soon. The provincial Liberals are in far worse shape, and the federal Liberals... well, you know.

    At least the provincial Liberals finally seem to make a bit sense. After a while of taking their cues from the ADQ and the PQ, they're finally proposed something that wasn't a big electoral candy nonsense: the idea of bringing the UN to Montréal. At least, for once, the government has vision. I can't wait for the provincial Liberals to get rid of Jean Charest.

  • I think they're in worse shape than the Liberals. And I'm glad of it - I hope to see the back of their miserable presence in the next 15 years. What a bunch of losers the PQ/BQ are.

  • I completely agree with the post.
