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!!
