The separatists ARE socialists. All they had going for them was their independence stance, which helped them pick up a number of voters from socially conservative Quebecois who wanted to send a protest message against Ottawa's overbearing interference in Quebec's affairs. Remove that and the broad appeal of the PQ evaporates. Two of Quebec's parties (the Quebec Liberals and ADQ) represent a different approach: free markets, small government and Quebec autonomy within Canada. That is the right prescription for change and for Quebec's future.

My initial comment was intended to mock Lorne Gunter's - other than on matters fiscal - habitual red-Tory leanings.
That said his heart's mostly in the right place.
You may recall we worked together recently to tag-team Dion on his all round 'Milhouse' persona and Lorne invited me to join Civitas
during the year he was its Canadian president.
BTW, if appropriate, Passover greetings, FRiend.
