Harper taking credit for the decline of Quebec sovereignty

The Conservative Party of Canada flaunted online about being the reason why support for Quebec independence is on the decline.
“The gradual decline in Quebec separatist sentiment throughout the stewardship of our government, a government which has honoured Cartier’s principles, is something we should take pride in as a party,” read the Tweet.


The Journal de Montreal reported Bloc Québecois leader said the statement is arrogant and shows Harper is disconnected from the Quebecois reality. Gilles Duceppe called the statement “Conservative propaganda at its best.”

....because this Quebecer is "pas mal sure" that the sovereignty movement died because it is simply a bad idea to separate from Canada. DESPITE the Harper government. Quebec went NDP last election and was Liberal before that. No, PCs you can't make this claim.


...and hell has frozen over because I actually agree with Gilles Duceppe!!

Never been there. But when you have a charter plane going from one point in BC to another point in BC the canned french anouncement on the plane is simply an irritant.

Don't forget to complain if the inflight service personnel do not offer you your beverage in perfect French... There's a good option for a lawsuit and Human Rights complaint in there

I'm pretty sure Canada has 2 official languages with significant amounts of francophones in Manitoba and New Brunswick as well.

Thanks for your concern Walter .

No he is not. The conservatives have next to 0 influence in Quebec, but you can keep your delusions.

Only once this year. We now fly direct from Comox to Terrace. But I have noticed that many of the street signs are in Chinese and so are the flight boards in the airport.

You mean the French only signs? I agree, it's both short sighted and purposely divisive. I lived in Ottawa when that law was first enacted and amongst all the bilingual individuals I knew (friends, family, co-workers, etc) I don't recall a single one that was supportive of it.

Well taxslave would have us "pick one". I agree French only is detrimental to Quebec tourism but I think now that the Provincial Libs are in power we will see more bilingual signs. BTW, the real party that deserves the credit...combined with the stupidity of the Parti Quebecois.

Quebec is just a welfare state, supported by other provinces but mainly Alberta thru it's Equalization payments.

It seems to me that if others are going to support this welfare state, they should have a say in it's laws/policies.

I think the problem is that you are too easily irritated.

I love Quebec, but you have to admit that the serving government has nothing to fan the flames of separatism. As for the Liberals, I've seen only scandal at both the Federal and Provincial levels when it came to Quebec. Adscam and most recently the Provincial Liberals fell on their sword after all sorts of scandal.

Fortunately for them, the Parti Quebecois started down its fascist path with its Xenophobic charter and blew themselves up..

Lots of clean up going on in Quebec. These politicians and parties are ALL being scrutinized very closely. The only reason the Quebec conservatives are not....is because we don't have any.


In fact, the Liberals are the farthest right we go.

At a Provincial level yes. But there were Federal Conservative seats held in Quebec, there might even be some now, but I'm not positive on the exact number and I'm heading out for pizza.
