Harper's Gamble ...
Stephen Harper's declaration
that the Quebecois constitute a nation within the Dominion of Canada is certainly a gamble and one in keeping with his Reform Party roots and inclinations.
It is also a gamble with the very idea of Canada that Sir John A. Macdonald put forth 139 years ago.
The Foreign Press and News Services are confused and reporting the semantics a little differently
And now - of course - the separatists are moving quickly to stake out their spin
prior to resparking the idea of another Referendum on Sovereignty.
And of course, now the Aboriginals are asking appropriate and dangerous questions.
What of the legal implications inherent in the motion ? The Political implications?
Roy Romanow weighs in here.
What do Canadians think of this gamble - prior to it being played ? See here ...
I like what Historian Michael Bliss has to say about this nonsense.
And finally, my Friend Beaverbrook over at THE MONARCHIST
weaves in with his final and potent thoughts.
You will hear more from this old tory later on over the weekend.
Suffice it to say, Harper has really buggered-up this file ...
