QotD: Working with the PQ

Filed under: Cancon, Government, Humour, Politics — Tags: , , , — Nicholas @ 13:44

For some reason it is being treated as news that the Prime Minister said he would work with a Parti Quebecois government in the unfortunate circumstance of a PQ victory.

What else was he supposed to say? The PQ has held power several times since Rene Levesque’s first victory in 1976. It’s a democratic country, and provinces can elect whoever they want. Ottawa doesn’t have a choice whether it wants to work with the victor or not. Harper worked with Danny Williams — well, he tried, anyway — when the Newfoundland caudillo declared himself the supreme power of El Rocko Independanto and waged a personal war against his Canadian oppressors. Pauline Marois, the PQ leader (at least until the next revolt) can’t be half as annoying as Danny was.

  1. Unfortunately the National Post is now the recipient of Canadian Press news feeds. The Canadian Press is owned partially by TorStar and partially by the Globe and Mail. They are also partners with the Associated Press. All progressive, all the time. The current Canadian Press website has pictures of cute polar bears on it and the Associated Press was renown for global warming alarmist pieces by Seth Bornstein. The minute you see a piece of news feed by either CP or AP, ignore it. It is propaganda.
