No, really…everything’s fine, just fine!

Fall session at the National Assembly finally begins today, but we’ve already been getting a deluge of political candy. I almost don’t know where to begin.

Well, since school is starting up, let’s talk about education. With the OUI option continuing to dwindle to its lowest point since gaining momentum in the late 60s, the separatists have decided it may be time to switch from preaching sovereignty…to teaching it.

This is not a new idea.

An attempt was made 10 years ago with a school book that drew nothing but ire from all directions. More recently, Marie Malavoy tried to pitch a formal sovereignist curriculum in public schools. That didn’t fly either.

This of course, will not deter Quebec’s own Richie Rich, monsieur PFK, from trying to launch a separatist school. 

This seppie school news also happens to be coupled with another event, namely a book launch, Le livre qui fait dire oui.

The irony of it all?

Yet, if you ask any hardcore separatist what’s up with the state of their movement and they’ll swear up-and-down that everything is peachy-keen and that “freedom” but is a couple of years away.

They’ll swear that most Quebeckers truly want to separate and deep down inside, they know what’s to be gained.

Then why do we need a research institute on sovereignty (this is another of PFK’s plans), a separatist school and that new book from Option Nationale?

Very weird.

***********************************

Things are going so well for the sovereignist movement that not only has Mario Beaulieu called on Gilles Duceppe to step in and take over the BQ ranks to help preserve hope for the dying political party, but this phenomenon is extending itself to the provincial level.

Sol Zanetti might have been smiling brightly for the cameras during the launch of his new book, but if things are going so well, why is he offering to pull a Mario and transfer leadership of Option Nationale back to his predecessor, Jean-Martin Aussant? 

I mean, take a look at how things went for the Bloc after Gilles reprised his role. We saw a momentary uptick in the polls, and then, in the time it takes throw back a pint of Boreale on a hot summer day, the Bloc went right back down to the basement.

Aussant is no Duceppe, so if Gilles can’t resurrect the BQ, Aussant will not accomplish much in breathing life into a political party that has never really had what we can call true life.

At least Sol had his book launch so he could feel important for a couple of hours.

You might think my using a picture of the Hitler Youth to contrast what PFK’s separatist schools are reminiscent of to be harsh, but in case you do, take a look at this design used by the makers of a sovereignist beer:

Quebec’s Provost Emerges

Bernard Drainville mesquinEver read the novel King Rat by James Clavell?

When PFK released details of his phantom cabinet yesterday, this book came to mind, especially as far as Bernie Drainville is concerned.

So here’s a little background on the premise for King Rat: it takes place in a Japanese POW camp situated in Singapore (WWII). This POW camp is the most populous of all the Japanese camps and contains prisoners from the US, UK, other parts of Europe.

The Rat King has two alpha males, one’s an American who’s taken to breeding rats whose meat he trades to fellow prisoners (hence why he’s King Rat).

The other is a Brit who follows rules like his life depends on it, because he’s the camp provost. Actually, the POW camp is actually good for the Brit, because he has a degree of status there, whereas back home in Britain, he’s an unaccomplished nobody.

These two alpha males don’t get along very well at all, with the Brit always looking for ways to screw the American.

In this reality, Quebec is the POW camp.

PFK the American.

Drainville the Brit (Hey, he loves Churchill!).

I don’t care what kind of smile PFK & Bernie plaster onto their faces when posing for cameras together.  Anyone with even an acute ability to read between the lines can pick up on the palpable loathing they have for each other.

Either way, in ceding his dream of becoming the PQ’s Don to PFK, Bernie has cemented a degree of future rule over the party.

How so?

Well, most Canadians have gotten very accustomed to seeing interim leaders as little more than seat-warmers until the new “real leader” takes the reigns.

The reality is that an interim leader CAN be ratified into the permanent leader of the party. 

Bernie knows this. 

In order for this to happen,  you’d require a party convention to approve it.

Bernie knows this too.

In order to get approval, you only have to make sure you get the right people on your side.

Yup, you guessed it – Bernie knows this.

Let’s take a look at the hard facts about the Parti Quebecois – they are a hard-scrabble group of men and women who will not hesitate in the least to stab each other in the back.

The PQ is well known for unceremoniously dumping its leaders after defeat. Pauline Marois has lodged a few knives in the backs of former colleagues much and that’s why she bailed before the jackals had the chance to stick their knives in her back.

Once PFK fails in his bid to lead Quebec (and believe me, he will), the PQ faithful will again start craving the familiar taste of blood and cast PFK out of their sect.

By that point, not only will Bernie be the interim leader, he’ll have four years of backroom seeding to cultivate.

Literal Phantom Cabinet

I’ve already made my predictions about PQ ministers bailing from the ship and now that the phantom cabinet has been announced, I think those bodies will be jumping ship.

While many believe that Stéphane Bédard will be leaving after being relieved of his role as leader, I think he’ll be around for as long as the electorate keeps voting him in. 

Jean-François Lisée still tops my list. The only reason he wasn’t shit-canned was to maintain appearances.

Martine Ouellet will certainly butt heads with  PFK. This is just plain inevitable. I don’t know when she’ll bail, after all, she stayed in the leadership race despite having no chance of winning, but count on her either sitting as an independent or quitting politics altogether. No, she will not go to QS. I see the same outcome for Véronique Hivon.

I seriously François Gendron will run again as he’s almost 71 now and certainly in line for a posh retirement.

You can also kiss Hochelaga MAN Carole Poirier goodbye. In 2014, Quebec Solidaire missed her by only 4%. 

What this means for the PQ’s Rat King:

  1. A party that is losing more and more sitting members with each passing election
  2. A party that continues to decline in the polls with each passing year

By the time Bernie finally accomplish his goal of becoming the PQ’s commander, he’ll be leading little more than shell of party which will likely be little more than 2nd opposition come 2018…but at least he’ll be king!

Bonus Round:

Found this comment from a separatist who voted “Yes” in 1995 and what turned him away from the movement once and for all:

Drainville est probablement le politicien le plus vil au Québec, et ils sont nombreux. En fait j’avais voté oui en 1995, malgré tous les problèmes qui seraient arrivés, inévitablement après une indépendance. Je connais très bien la Canada anglophone, peuplé en grande partie de gens sensés, démocrates, mais je jugeais à ce moment que l’indépendance était une solution préférable.

Ce qui m’a fait changer, pour toujours, c’est la charte, ou la société québécoise sans retenue aucune, a montré sa xénophobie, voir un racisme écoeurant, encouragé sciemment par le PQ, des gens sans foi ni loi comme MBC chauffant la foule, hurlant à la disparition des québécois francophones, des menaces imaginaires, la dénonciation de gens qui ne demandent qu’a vivre en paix…

La dérive se poursuit quand on voit les jeunes du PQ qui désiraient se rapprocher du Front National en France.

Derrière ceci, cette charte, un politicien sans scrupule, sans honneur, mettant sur le même pied, dans une commission parlementaire, des druides, les recteurs des universités, manipulant des gens faibles et incultes comme les malheureux Pineault-Caron, ridiculant l’institution ou doit se dérouler le débat public, ou nous sommes tous représentés, s’il ne s’était s’agit que de lui, passe encore, mais ce qui se mettait un place c’était une xénophobie d’état, sur le dos de communautés instrumentées sans vergogne…

Ajoutons les mensonges sur les hommes et les femmes qui n’auraient pas perdu leurs emplois, madame Marois ayant finalement concédés que ceci n’était pas vrai.

Ensuite notre populiste au grand coeur se précipite pour diriger les forces vives de la nation et sentant la possibilitée de terminer en quatrième position, toute honte bue, alors qu’il vomissait sur le prétendant numéro 1, annonce piteusement son ralliement, sentant que là se situait sa seule chance de retrouver ses fesses dans le siège d’une limousine ministérielle.

On peut l’imaginer ministre de la propagande et des basses oeuvres, il a déjà des modèles à copier..

Cet homme est un laquais servile, sans honneur, sans principes, la main du maître vient de caresser son encolure, il se sent suffisament méprisé pour se justifier immédiatement..la honte de la charte le poursuivra pour toujours..je considère que les sbires comme Drainville sont des dangers pour la démocratie, pour notre vivre ensemble.

It only takes a dead 3 year old…

bebe syrien mort

The world has been rocked by the image of the 3-year-old Syrian refugee who washed up on shore in a failed attempt to escape the barbaric warfare that’s enveloped Syria.

While regular people are saddened and shocked, not only by the boy’s death, but the greater tragedy it symbolises, it also opened the door to anonymous separatists showing us once again, more clearly than ever what drives their movement.

If you’re already upset at the story, you might want to hold off on reading the comments below, which  will no doubt enrage you.

For years, separatists have tried to argue that their movement is not rooted in hatred, isolationism, racism and ignorance.

For years they’ve tried arguing that their movement has legitimacy.

After reading the comments below, you’ll see more clearly than ever, once and for all what Quebec’s separatists are all about:

“On en a eu plein d’enfant nous aussi et ce,  ici même dans notre beau pays qui est le notre et qui aussi n’ont pas vécu assez vieux.

Personne ne les pleure eux,  aujourd’hui…”

“Avant de faire entrer des réfugier, ont devrait s’occuper mettre l’argent pour nos personnes agées, et nous aussi beaucoup de personne dans le besoin”

“Le Canada (y compris le Québec) va se « ghettoïser » encore plus… Toronto est assise sur une poudrière de multiculturalisme dangereuse et tout l’monde ferme les yeux… Bah, on fera de la gestion de crise au moment opportun je présume.”

“Pourquoi n’est ce pas un pays musulman qui les accueille ? Il serait beaucoup plus facile à intégrer.”

“Ouin encore plus au Québec. C’est PET qui serait content lui qui voulait noyer le Québec dans l’immigration. Les problèmes doivent être regler là bas et pas déplacer le problème . Charité bien ordonné commence par soi même. Ensuite d’ici une vingtaine d’années ont braillera qu’on a des problèmes avec la langue la religion et que sais-je encore. C’est déjà commencé.”

“Achetez-vous du pop corn et regardez-les mourir.”

Next time a separatist tries to convince you that the movement is open in spirit and that they want Quebec to be its own country on account that it’s more ‘about the people’ you can show them these comments.

OMG – Is Quebec Finally Evolving?

quebec fonctionnaires paresseuxIt’s like my biggest political wetdream is finally becoming vividly true.

The crosshairs are finally set on two of the state’s biggest bloated rip-offs: The SAQ and Revenu Quebec.

I almost cannot believe the abolition of these two “societes” might well see the business end of the proverbial political shotgun.

Then again, maybe I shouldn’t be too surprised. To date Couillard has shown himself to be a very determined leader and completely unlike his sac-less predecessor, Jean Charest.

Let’s begin with Revenu Quebec.

Know what I love about separatists? They always clamour that a sovereign Quebec would be cheaper because we’d “no longer have duplicate government services”.

They love citing Revenu Quebec as one of these such examples. Speaks volumes about their utter lack of travel, otherwise, they’d understand that Quebec is the only province in Canada to have these “double-ups”.

Maurice DuPlessis claimed Ottawa was ‘stealing’ from Quebec and that was the M.O. for bringing this government entity into existence. Odd picture isn’t it? Of all the provinces and territories that make up the federation, Quebec’s the only one that needs its own auditor.

Here’s the real deal with Revenu Quebec – it’s nothing more than a shameless cras-grab. I’ve lived all over Canada and seen the different income tax rates and Quebec’s was always the worst.

I’ll never forget how,  many moons ago, I went to live in Toronto and got a job at a warehouse. $13 an hour. That was actually more than what similar jobs were paying in Quebec, so I was already off to a better start.

When my first pay came, my jaw nearly hit the floor. I had about $60 or $70 more on my cheque than I would’ve have had for the same pay in Quebec.

And that’s what I love about the separatists sticking up for RQ – they claim it’s a measure to protect the people of Quebec when it is in fact, it’s a license to sodomize the taxpayer without any trace of mercy.

When you bring this point up to separatists, they gleefully regurgitate canned separatist excuse #76.5:

But the cost of living in Quebec is cheaper than other parts of Canada!

Vraiment?

Son, didn’t you hear me when I said I’ve lived in other parts of Canada?

You might want to try it some time. That way you’d understand that the lowest cost of living in a large Canadian city belongs to Winnipeg.

Actually, this is where we drag the SAQ into the cost of living argument.

One of my favourite red wines is a bottle with the Fleur Du Cap label on it.

Know how much an Ontarian drinker of Fleur Du Cap pays for his bottle? About $5 less than the guy in Quebec.

And why is it this way?

Because the state handed the SAQ the right to do this.

This monopoly has helped foster the corrupt union culture that has robbed Quebec of its work ethic and integrity for almost two generations now. People are being paid $25 fucking dollars an hour to stack bottles on a shelf.

Already, the good ol’ separatist/union boys club has come out swinging right away…doing whatever they can to preserve their $60K/year pay for minimum-wage job lifestyles:

The SAQ cries foul

If you click on that link you’ll see how the union bosses quickly collaborated with the directors of the SAQ to do whatever they could to preserve their monopoly.

Revenu Quebec did much the same. Actually, both organizations pushed their counter arguments out before the government was to deliver its scheduled report.

I’m telling you folks, this kind of shit ONLY happens in Quebec. This is the only state in North America, where an organization would not only contradict the boss in public, but go the extra step and preemptively “show them up”.

The directors of the SAQ and Revenu Quebec responsible for these press releases are lucky I’m not in power. They would be fired in a heartbeat for this kind of behavior.

Of course, they can’t be entirely blamed for the temptation of doing what they did, because PKP’s newspapers have featured about 8 articles on the subject in 24 hours and you can pretty much guess which side they lean towards.

Like I said, Couillard is living up to his last name and holding his ground and hasn’t even reached year two of his mandate yet, so time is on his side.

Sorry to all the unionist seps that may be reading this, but this time around, it truly is the end of the line with the way things have been up to now and the age of living artificially is about to take its place in the history books.
