Since its inception in 1993, Quebecers have elected Bloc MPs and those MPs have gone to parliament and assume their duties. They argue causes, just as other parties do. They serve on committees and follow the rules while they participate in parliament. They have supported (or not supported) governments in vote after vote.
Now, suddenly, the government is saying that Bloc MPs are dangerous and irresponsible, and their votes should not count in the House. Worse, a poll in the Globe & Mail yesterday suggests that the majority of Anglophone Canadians support the government.
Either the government of Canada has to take this back and assert the equality of Quebec in the parliament of Canada, or we have to open up negotiations in Quebec to allow them to adopt some form of independent (sovereigntist) government. We can't leave it both ways. I'm not happy about this (to say the least), but I refuse to sit by while one quarter of the population is treated as unequal.
