Trudeau son Justin mulls possible separate Quebec [for abortion, gay marriage]

OTTAWA (Reuters) - The son of one of the greatest defenders of Canadian unity, former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, has stirred up a hornets' nest by speculating about backing Quebec separatism if the country moves too far right.

Trudeau's 40-year-old son, Justin, now a Liberal member of Parliament, said in an interview with the French-language service of the Canadian Broadcasting Corp on Sunday that he was enormously saddened by the direction of the country under Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

He said that at some point he might even back independence for his home province, French-speaking Quebec. Referendums in Quebec on independence in 1980 and 1995 both failed, the last one by a mere 1.2 percentage points.

"I always say, if at a certain point I thought that Canada was really the Canada of Stephen Harper - that we were going against abortion, and we were going against gay marriage and we were going backwards in 10,000 different ways - maybe I would think about wanting to make Quebec a country," he said.

KEYWORDS: abortion; gaymarriage
Says young Mr. Trudeau, "I know my values very well." Abortion and gay marriage seem to sum those "values" up pretty well. This nut did not drop far from the tree, it seems.

Won’t happen.
First Nations people (Canadian Indians) aren’t going anywhere.

Trudeau did more to damage Canada economically than anyone, from what I could see. Now his little boy wants to be another gilded troublemaker.

Ok...he may want to peel off Quebec from Canada as Canada gets a little too right wing for him and his issues dear to heart like abortion and homosexual marriage.

Quebec is 90% Catholic.

Since folks here always claim Catholics are conservative, how does that compute?

It would seem that would be a hard sell and that folks would be begging to create a French Canada to ban the very things he wants to preserve.

but...alas....perception is rarely reality anymore

The fraction of the Quebec population that observes Catholicism is miniscule. It is one of the most anti-religious places on the planet.

Canada would be better off ditching Quebec. Think of all they money they could save by not having to print everything in English and French anymore.

If abortion and gay marriage are the values of the “new” nation of Quebec, then it won’t be too long before the territory is returned to those First Nations people.

I do hope they separate. BC and the western provinces have long been screwed by the dirty little secret that actually is the foundation of canada...equalization payments. Meaning, canada’s provinces has a gun to it’s head and the equalization payments were a mafia tribute as to appease Quebec in staying since confederation. I was a kid in Sask when the QC referendum unfolded in 1995.

I pissed off a lot of my HS teachers when they were bragging “we are not Americans as we belong to the UK as part of Commonwealth.” My answer was “if we are, then why is French spoken as the national language?’

There was a series of articles about it when I was still in BC. It’s mandatory to have French as it is fed law but in western canada, no one really speaks it. The worst part if that French Tv channels and radio are required, and the reason why people watch it is because there show French movies where most of the women are nekkid’.

Kind of the same reason we watch the Spanish channels, although they aren't naked, but still, hot just the same.

You’re right! Justin probably could be the Canadian version of Barak Obama. May a beaver severely bite his ass before the door hits it on the way out.

Tell you what Justin, mon ami; You keep Quebec and we'll trade you everything north of Fredricksburg, VA and east of the I-95 corridor and throw in San Francisco and Southern California for Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan and the 3 NW Territories.

What say you , Great White North???

When Texas inevitably secedes, I would invite Alberta to join the new Republic of Texas.

There are more people living west of Ontario than east for the first time in Canadian history and this trend will continue. Quebec population growth is anemic and if you remove the immigrant component it is scary. i read an article that on quebec demographics that highlighted one scary number: 40% of quebecers in less than twenty-five yrs from now will be from non-traditional french quebec families (ie immigrants and their offspring). With a large percentage of them coming from the third world. Qubec willbe reduced to 10% or less of the overall population as these growth trends continue. Given that Quebec is the most socialist cradle to grave jurisdication outside of Cuba, you can see that it will be another greece in no time. I would hasard a guess that it will be English canada that will invitably expell Quebec from Canada and not the other way around. As to to the little marxist from the Papineau riding of Montreal, he is the product of the modern progressive movement that has a stranglehold on this province. Abortion and gay marriage is their religion and have no concern whatsoever what these policies will have on the very fabric of canadian society since their answer to everything is confiscatory taxes through the power of the state to be distributed according to their definition of entitlement. His father was another POS marxist that brought Canada to the edge of the abyss.

I might be moving out west much sooner than I expected!!

LOL! I presume you will either annex or negotiate a right of way for a corridor to promote travel and natural gas/petroleum pipelines.

Justina is every inch the turd, like his sorry bastard father.

I wish Canada would just boot Quebec’s ass out...after closing down their bases, taking all the equipment, and annexing a land corridor to the eastern provinces.
