CFN – So I was sampling some Maple syrup at my friends sugar shack today near Ormstown Quebec realizing that I might in fact be a bit of a hypocrite.
I’m a flawed human. I like to think that some of those flaws can make me special at times, but a flaw is a flaw.
I’m adult enough to admit when I’m wrong though and last month I wrote a piece suggesting that we Boycott Quebec this summer to make a statement about Bill 14 and that nasty piece of work known as Pauline Marois and her merry band of misery makers.
Driving into Montreal today and then back through some of the prettiest country side around and then sampling some rich late season Maple syrup, when the Maple flavour is richest, got me thinking that I got it wrong.
That’s the problem with many boycotts. They just aren’t thought out enough. So I’m going to apologize to any that I’ve offended. I’m going to ask anyone that I asked to boycott Quebec to not boycott Quebec, or anything really.
I’ll still pick and choose who I support and where I shop; but I’m not going to ask anyone to follow suit at an organizational level such as a boycott.
Quebec really does have a lot to offer even of some there make it hard for outsiders to appreciate it.
There are services and smoked meat to appreciate. There is Maple syrup, awesome poutine and Spruce beer to think about…and the Habs just might go deep in the play offs.
No, no Quebec boycott for this boy; not today.
