So hear tell that there’s gonna be provincial election in Quebec on Monday, April 7th. God help us if Marois gets the majority government that the most recent polls appear to be predicting she will. I personally don’t believe that the sovereignty option is a possibility even if Marois gets the majority that she says she needs to bring Quebec forward, not yet anyway, but one cannot always accurately predict what will happen at some future point in time.
 I say this due to recent polls which see that support for the separatist option has evened out at around thirty-five percent (35%). This may change depending on the quality of the job that Marois and the PQ do, should they ever achieve majority government status in the National Assembly.
Besides there is plenty of other damage that the Parti Quebecois government majority government can do, short of a a third referenda on the separation of Quebec.
Remember Bill 14? This proposed piece of legislation died on the order paper due to the fact that Marois realized that there was no way to get that Bill through with the PQ in a minority.
But with a majority, they can simply pass the bill into law.
Just to refresh our memories Bill 14 would have limited access to English CEGEP’s in the same way that Bill 101 denies entry to the English school system in Quebec to those whose parents (or parent) were not educated in the anglophone sector.
This travesty of justice, Bill 14, would also deny access to English schooling to members of the Canadian military and their families which they do have access to now. The government has the gall to suggest that people enter the military so that their kids can be educated in the English language. Is justice simply what the majority says it is? I highly doubt that.
Bill 14 would have also restricted access to bilingual status for any municipality which does not contain a majority of Anglophones. Cote-St.-Luc would even be denied bilingual status if Bill 14 becomes law because, believe it or not, the majority of CSL’s citizenry is not Anglophone.
Pity poor Quebec if the PQ becomes a majority government as a result of the next election. We need to fix our economy and our health care system and do not want to get bogged down playing the “identity politics” game. I wonder what the Lev Tahor sect thinks of all this. I hear they’re making plans to hit the road – or already have – headed for Mexico.
I find Francophones, some of them anyway, to be racists; I am fairly certain that this characterization can be applied to some Anglophones too. Up until recently, their cartooning of Afro-Canadians and Afro-Canadians had a decidedly racist quality to it and because I don’t quite know how to say this I’ll just leave it for now. Too bad Couillard and the CAQ are not up to the task of defeating the PQ and assuming the mantle of leadership. Let’s hope that they are competent enough to deny Marois the majority government she so badly wants.
There’s lots of damage that Marois can do short of sovereignty with a majority government. The above-mentioned Bill 14 is merely one example. Let’s not forget Bill 60, the Chartre des valeurs. What the fuck.
Vanek comes to Montreal! When was the last time the Canadiens traded for a player of Vanek’s quality? Have a look at the scoring race amongst the Habs? Where does Vanek fit in? Number one? … Nah couldn’t be … Or could it?
Am keeping my eyes on the difficulties in the Ukraine.
