Stephen Harper's Quebec Problem....
I'd like to hear more from Stephen Harper about Quebec. It seems clear that if the Conservatives win the next election, they will have NO seats from Quebec. This situation plays right into the hands of Boisclair in two ways.
First, he can rant and rave (with conviction) about a Federal Government with no representation from Quebec.
Second, who exactly will champion the Federalist cause in Quebec? Jean Charest? I don't think so. And, this is not just a problem for the Conservatives - the Liberals have no champion either.
The last think we need is a constitutional crisis over Quebec. The Liberals have taken an important issue and used it for partisan financial purposes. This is their biggest crime. In fact, I don't really mind if they steal a few million here and there - but the fact that they played loose with our Federation is really scandalous. I can't vote for them because of it.
But, a Stephen Harper government will have to face up to its own serious Quebec problem, and I have yet to hear any serious talk about it.
