There was an election in Quebec?

6 Sep

Apparently the separatists are in charge again in Quebec….

An Ipsos Reid poll published in June reported that 49 per cent of Canadians living outside Quebec “don’t really care” if Quebec separates from the country.

The “traditional” animosity Quebec held for the rest of Canada was largely the result of Trudeau-esque Liberal policies of ignoring the Canadian constitution, imposing the federal government in areas clearly enumerated as provincial powers.

Under Harper, who seems to have a more literal understanding of the separation of federal and provincial powers, Quebec (and Alberta) appear to be content to pursue their own agendas….

And Harper doesn’t need Quebec to retain power — so if they want to leave, most Canadians would be just as happy.
