An article today in the Chronicle Herald tells us how the Parti Quebecois removed the Canadian flag from its spot in the legislature: Begin Quote -
as mem­bers of the pro-independence Parti Quebecois took the oath of office Monday.

The removal of the Maple Leaf was part of a long-standing see­saw ritual: it had been long ab­sent in the legislature but was restored nine years ago when Jean Charest’s Liberals took office and placed it next to the Quebec flag at the Speaker’s chair in the building’s cere­monial chamber.

It was gone again Monday as the PQ’s 54-member caucus took the oath of office in the ornate old upper chamber, known as the Red Room, where the Quebec Fleur-de-lis was once again standing alone. End Quote...

As much as I love this country, as much as I have family ties to Quebec, as much as I want to see our country united, perhaps it is time that the rest of Canada vote on whether or not we want to keep Quebec as a part of Canada.

In so many ways Canada would be better off without the bully that is the PQ. We would be poorer for loosing the beauty that is Quebec but the nasty politics of that province do so much to hurt our pride and unity that perhaps it is time to give up the dream of a united Canada...

I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this topic...

Should the rest of Canada ask Quebec to either join us properly in being Canadian or simply ask them to leave?
