If I was a woman in Trudeau's cabinet, and he's posing for a selfie in front of another bus, I'd be pretty damn unnerved as the last time he posed in front of a bus shortly afterwords he threw Raybould/Wilson under it.
That move alone just clinched his utter corruption.

BREAKING: Trudeau agrees Quebec can unilaterally change constitution


Trudeau’s comment had Calgary MP Michelle Rempel Garner immediately asking if Alberta can now change the constitution for its own good.

Quebec can change the Canadian constitution all by itself, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Tuesday after an initial assessment by the federal government.
Premier François Legault told Trudeau in a letter on the weekend that was Quebec’s goal.
Legault said it has to be done after his government introduced massive changes to provincial language laws.
The letter said Quebec has the power to unilaterally change the constitution to affirm Quebec is a nation and that French is its official language.

The new law includes tougher sign laws and stronger language requirements for businesses governments and schools.
Trudeau’s comment had Calgary MP Michelle Rempel Garner immediately asking if Alberta can now change the constitution for its own good.
“So … by the same token, Alberta should be able to unilaterally amend Section 36 of the Constitution Act?,” Garner tweeted minutes after Trudeau’s comment.
“I mean if we’re going to play this game let’s do it up right.”

Section 36 guarantees equal opportunity in economic development.
Legault said the use of French was declining in Quebec and tough laws are needed to protect the language.
“When I think of all the generations that have succeeded and managed to keep French alive on a massively English-speaking continent, I realize the great responsibility I have,” he said in a Facebook post.
“French in Quebec will always be threatened. And every generation has a responsibility to ensure their survival. It’s our turn to carry the torch, our turn to protect our tongue with pride. As the prime minister of Quebec, my first duty, my first duty is to protect our language.

Legault said, “This law will be the strongest action to protect our language,” since the passage of Law 101 in 1977.
“Our language is at the heart of what we are as a nation. Let’s be proud of our history! Let’s be proud to live in Quebec in French!”
The letter also notes former prime minister Stephen Harper’s government adopted a motion in 2006 recognizing Quebec as a nation.
Legault’s letter said Quebec will use all available means, including the notwithstanding clause, to support the bill.

… more to come
Yes, if Quebec can "unilaterally change the constitution" Alberta should also be able to "change" the way transfer payments are made from our Province as we need the funds much more than Quebec, that's for sure. We should be able to determine what, if any, transfer payments can be made to other areas of the country. If change is good for one; then change is good for all!!!

Not to mention that Quebec’s discriminatory and racist language policies stifle investment in the province. Alberta is left footing the transfer payment bill to accommodate Quebec’s language policies. This is grossly unfair. Alberta should not have to foot the bill!!!

Hah! Good luck with that.

Quebec had refused to sign the constitution. No way can a Province unilaterally change the constitution, let alone a province that had refused to sign the document. It’s not going to happen.
Never say Never. Justin needs/wants a majority in Parliament, & will promise anything he needs to in order to make that happen, & if the Bloc backs him on this in exchange for anything they want....well....never say never. http://nationalpost.com/opinion/joh...rs-trudeaus-focus-remains-on-project-majority

For Justin Trudeau, every situation is viewed through the lens: “How does this affect my chances of being re-elected with a majority.” Nothing can be allowed to get in the way of Project Majority. The impact on the nation’s governance, finances and now its Constitution are subordinate considerations.

The shortcomings of various ministers have been well-documented. For his dereliction in the sexual misconduct in the military case alone, Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan should have been replaced. Yet the removal of a prominent Sikh might not play well in that influential community just months before a general election is expected.

Health Minister Patty Hajdu has had a checkered pandemic, to put it mildly. The prime minister is given regular briefings by the Public Health Agency of Canada, meetings from which Hajdu is said to be excluded, despite her requests to be involved. It appears Trudeau doesn’t trust the input of his health minister during a health emergency but insists she remain as the government’s chief spokesperson on vaccines, rapid testing and all other life and death issues, rather than he be forced to shuffle a female minister (Beware of Selfies & Photo-Op's near buses).

(For the record, Cameron Ahmad, the prime minister’s communications director, said there are many briefings and Trudeau speaks to Hajdu all the time).

The buggaring of the nation’s finances in the recent budget were neatly summarized by former deputy minister of finance, Kevin Lynch, and his co-author Paul Deegan in the Financial Post. “It favours short-term consumption over private sector investment, sprinkles spending initiatives far and wide, adds heavily to the national debt and misses an urgent opportunity to rebuild our longer-term growth post-pandemic,” they wrote. “(But) as a political statement, it should yield political dividends.”

It is very much in this vein that the prime minister said on Tuesday that Quebec can unilaterally rewrite certain sections of the Constitution to insert new provisions establishing the province as a “nation.” The rest of the story is at the First LINK above.....but the punchline of it is that the immediate reaction of constitutional experts in English Canada is that Quebec cannot make unilateral changes without getting consent outside the province.

I know, they likely don't understand "Quebec" French. When hubby was in the military, he spent some time in France on Leave. Several of his buddies were from Quebec and when they went into French restaurants/shops, the Quebecers would start talking to the people who worked there and none of them could understand them. Hubby said it was hilarious because the guys from Quebec got really "steamed" that they couldn't be understood. It was rather embarrassing for them. So there's no doubt in my mind that even tho' the West Africans spoke French, that no Frenchmen here will actually understand what they're saying and vice versa.
