The British Invasion

It was supposed to be a chance to come together for a beautiful night on the plains of Abraham. But, it just wouldn’t be a Quebec 400th anniversary event without a bit of helter skelter and, sure enough, yesterday, the PQ culture critic told Sir. Paul McCartney to jet back to England because:
“I like Paul McCartney but, given the context, this is the straw that breaks the camel's back,” said Curzi, referring to what he called the “Canadianization” of Quebec City's 400th-birthday celebrations.

Jean Charest did help a bit by telling the press that Curzi to let it be, but you’ve got to figure it won’t be long until Gilles Duceppe starts to twist and shout over this junk.

Horrible puns aside, I'm changing my "At Issue" vote to this Quebec City anniversary as the most over-exploited issue of the year. These people seriously need to think before they speak.
