Dammit Justin, can’t you get anything right? You were supposed to trash the Bloc’s Blanchet in the French-language debate. In the English-language debate your targets were conservative Erin O’Toole and NDP Jagmeet Singh. To give Blanchet and Quebec premier Legault reason to attack you for what you did not say in English is ridiculous.
And to give Legault an opportunity to endorse O’Toole could be both good and bad. The federal liberal deal with Quebec on daycare was supposed to lay the groundwork for a stronger liberal showing in Quebec in this election.
And let’s not blame the wrangle about Quebec bigotry the other night on the English-debate moderator. She called it as many across Canada perceive the Quebec City bullies. Bill 21 and the newer Bill 96 are part of a growing menace to the unity of Canada. They use bigotry, secularism and distrust to try to widen the gulf between Quebec and the rest of Canada. And it all is in aid of ongoing attempts for Quebec elitists to belittle and separate from Ottawa.
If Bill 21, the secularism bill, was not bigoted, why did the Quebec assembly need to invoke the not-withstanding clause in our constitution? Sorry folks but bigotry begins when we want everyone to be “just like us.” And what do you think Bill 96 is but another unneeded barrier to put down the use of the English language in Quebec?
Mind you, the picture of the Quebec premier endorsing O’Toole shows us just how stupid he thinks the conservative leader might be. We should not forget that O’Toole is the tool of premier Jason Kenney in Alberta and the close friend of premier Doug Ford in Ontario. These gentlemen have tried to stay out of the limelight lately but it goes against their nature. Like the scorpion riding across the river on the back of the gullible dog, their sting is just their nature. Both have lost their fight to withhold vaccine passports from their provinces.
But if anyone has a clearer idea of how this federal election will end, I, for one, would like to hear about it.
