PQ leader-in-waiting Pauline Marois has a
campaign press release opinion piece in today’s Gazette, which I’m sure she wrote herself. In English.
How exactly is this not a waste of time and space? Does Marois really think Gazette readers will vote for the PQ in a general election, to say nothing about supporting her in a party leadership “race”?
Nevertheless, she makes her point:
First of all, the population isn’t ready to reopen a debate on the whole issue of Quebec sovereignty, nor does it want to get locked in a sterile discussion concerning the date, time, hour or mechanics of a referendum.
Holy crap. You mean voting against separation in two massive referendums has actually sunk in?
Marois goes on to make two
demands recommendations for the future: promote sovereignty like it’s a Virgin Mobile cellphone plan to gain popular support before putting it to another vote, and start updating their social democratic platform (read: swing more toward the centre-right like the Liberals and ADQ).
Well, good luck with that.
