I’m changing Quebec’s motto

- September 20th, 2012

It's not the same!
Yep. I’ve decided it shouldn’t be “Je me souviens” any more. It should be “It’s not the same!”

Why? Because:

OTTAWA – NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair said it’s not his job to chew out separatist Quebec Premier Pauline Marois after she twice hid the Canadian flag during swearing-in ceremonies for her new government this week.

“When was the last time you saw someone in the federal government call out a provincial government on an internal issue like that?” he said on Wednesday.

However, Mulcair has intervened recently in other provincial issues.

He campaigned for Ontario’s NDP in a provincial byelection this month, urging voters to deny the Liberals a majority.

Mulcair has also criticized Alberta’s oilsands, saying their “model for development is Nigeria.”

Meanwhile, the Conservative MP from Toronto who wrapped himself in the flag with a private member’s bill to defend the right to fly it wouldn’t go near the Maple Leaf on Wednesday.

John Carmichael’s office abruptly cancelled an interview on Sun News Network to talk about Marois’ actions and his bill.

After Sun News Network reported the cancellation, Carmichael’s staff claimed no interview was ever agreed to and demanded the station withdraw the story.

Sun News Network stands by its reporting.

    Apparently the national legislative assembly of Quebec where mps gather every day to discuss issuess of the day, does not have a ‘canadian flag’ at the side of the speaker’s chair.
