CFN – Quebec’s new Charter of Shame has been condemned loudly outside of the province. It’s also be loudly rejected within by the opposition parties, by labour, by Mayoralty candidates in Montreal, Quebec’s largest union federation, the mayors of the 15 other municipalities on the island of Montreal, a prominent Bloc Québécois MP (expelled from the tiny BQ caucus Thursday), a major teachers’ union, the Fédération des femmes du Québec have all come out publicly against that part of the charter, and even a group of prominent separatist intellectuals.
Quebec has a minority government. Isn’t it about time for the other two parties to end this farce and allow the voters of Quebec to send the rest of Canada and the World a clear message?
Either Quebecers support this utter racist and faux “pure laine” rhetoric or they don’t. With roads crumbling, sinkholes appearing, and its economy moving in the wrong direction the PQ clearly shows that it isn’t capable of leading the province when its solutions are to come up with policies like this that only divide a province that doesn’t need division.
