If it ain’t bolted down...

An ‘dey wanted der own Olympic Team, too. It’s a sort of “but I support our troops” style of Canadian Patriotism where they’re all for unity in Canada as long as you pay them off. At the end of the day, do they want to be Canadian or don’t they? Stephen Harper took the right attitude last week – he refused to court the crypto-separatists for votes - period.
Quebec’s ‘separatist lite’ types have been forcing themselves into government overrepresentation through language law, constantly threatening the collapse of the state for more money, and then managing the federal government with the kind of nihilism that only a leftist can summon up. Look out, world, here come their loony ideas now!

In fact if this little episode doest have the look and feel of Gorbachev’s hiding out in his dacha during a putsch, I don’t know what does.
