No, I am not slagging Hispanics or Francophones. What I am saying is that the United States and English Canada have been a model of good government, prosperity and relative harmony. And through Wilfred Laurier French Canada as well. I believe in "e pluribus unum" or "out of many, one." Emphasizing discord and differences is not conducive to peace, order and good government.

Hopefully Liberals gain another majority mandate in 2018.

Well, it's totally unrelated to the position on the unity issue, but the Quebec Liberals have not exactly been a smashing success in this mandate so far.

It will get worse with Alberta and Saskatchewan no longer kicking in billions to the equalization pot.

At this point their heavy budget cuts arent making them very popular.Not much in the way of options if you dont like the Liberals in Quebec.Separatist party still in second place.
From a recent leger poll=
Quote:
Liberals with the most support, at 36 per cent, while the PQ is at 29 per cent, followed by 21 per cent for the Coalition Avenir Québec and Québec solidaire with 10 per cent.

Geez man. What did Quebec do to you?


Was it a pretty girl in Montreal named Marie-Josée who broke your heart?


I mean, you live in a country where you have been unable to amass enough gumption to bring real changes in response to the senseless massacre of 20 little six-year-old children...


To me this is a far greater failing than any of the (perceived) sins of Quebec that you and others are always raising on here, and yet I (and other Québécois people) don't go on American forums to constantly point this out.


So, what gives? Was Marie-Josée really *that* hot? Do you have a picture of her you can post so we can judge?

I wasn't even implying that equalization was unfair, just that the pot is going to be a lot smaller this year, and Quebec's budget relies in part on that funding coming in.

Oh, my post wasn't addressed to you. I think your points are valid on this one BTW.


And I am glad you had fun with Marie-Claude!
