Quebec City— Globe and Mail Update
Published Saturday, May. 05, 2012 3:07PM EDT

Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s vision of Canada is leaving Quebec no other choice but to seek political independence, Parti Québécois leader Pauline Marois said

It has become “very risky” for the province to remain a part of Canada, she added in the speech to party faithful gathering to prepare for the next provincial election.

Because it was true under every Prime Minister since Trudeau?

Oh, I dunno, let me guess. Because that is what separatists do regardless of who is in power?

Harper has long been of the opinion that Canada would be better off without QC, and facilitating their departure has been one of his motivations for getting into federal politics from the start.

I don't think it will happen quickly, and if we can get rid of the Conservatives after one term, I think it may be possible for a federalist government to undo some of the damage.

How? By electing the NDP who promised last election to make it easier fro Quebec to leave?

The ND Party's Tom Mucair has vowed to demand more transparency in the House and the Federal Dippers are embarking on a drive to return to responsible governance and transparency.

The show begins with the latest on the so-called robocalls story.

We shall see if Our Glorious Leader and it's Tired Old Government®™© will soon be on the ropes.

Hate to point out the obvious but it is a solid majority. Sadly that means a few more years of corporations and power interests pushing bills like C-11 and C-30.

Sadly it probably also means Canada will not tell the US where to shove FATCA. Meaning an end to Canadian sovereignty. NOTE: The big five Canadian Banks have so little faith in this government standing up to the US on FACTA that they are now hiring people to try to figure out how best to "comply".

Also suspect we will see a big time drain on taxpayer dollars as Canada gets sucked into an invasion of Iran, probably followed by Pakistan. When that happens you can kiss the promised balanced budget goodbye.
