Canada is not a bad word
Quebec Premier Pauline Marois sent a 158158 authentic Hurricanes jersey
word press release last Sunday to congratulate Olympic men's hockey team without mentioning the word Canada or Canadian one single time. We only clued into the fact she was talking about Team Canada when she singled out the performances of Marc Vlasic, Patrice Bergeron, Roberto Luongo and Martin St Louis.
In other words, Marois only praised the Quebec wing of the team without mentioning the C word.
On behalf of a VERY, VERY strong majority of Quebecers, I wanted toto cheap Hurricanes jersey
offer our sincere apologies to all Canadians for the childish and shameful behaviour of our premier.
It might not be the first time a politician embarrasses us, but this one is reaching a new and historic low.
Olympics are a tough period for the most radical fringe of the separatist movement. No matter political partisanship,partisanship, Hurricanes jerseys china
almost all Quebecers are collectively proud of our Canadian Olympic athletes, starting obviously with our gold medallists.
Over the last two weeks, the Parti Qu minister of tourism, Pascal Berube, posted a medal count of a separate Quebec and a Canada without Quebec among all other countries on his Facebook page. PQ minister of higher education, Pierre Duchesne,Duchesne, Hurricanes jerseys cheap
was no better by retweeting a photoshopped picture of the Dufour Lapointe sisters in which their Canada mittens were replaced by blue and white mitts emblazoned with Quebec's fleur de lis.
If the separatists had to decide the date of the referendumreferendum cheap Hurricanes jerseys
on Quebec's constitutional future, they would certainly choose June 24, St. Jean Baptiste day, since we are all Qu first and foremost for those 24 hours. On the other hand, there can't be a better day for the federalists than when our hockey heroes of Team Canada win the gold medal at the Olympics.
But don't think that it has something to do with language. In her congratulations list, Marois also snubbed the guy who scored the winning goal, Jonathan Toews, even though his French is as good as mine or Marois'. You see, Toews has Quebec roots but was born in Manitoba. He therefore disqualified himself.
No matter whether you are a local hero, you speak perfect French, you move to Montreal or you pay taxes in Quebec, if you are not born and raised in belle province you're not worth a in the PQ's book.
Seriously, Marois needs to stop her disgusting game of dividing us needlessly right now. If Quebecers democratically decide to separate one day, Quebec will always need Canada as its closest neighbour, ally and partner.
