It appears once again Quebec once again is the butt of ridicule over their policies regarding language, immigration, and religion.
Quebec Premier Pauline Marios, looking more grandmother, than politician has once again stirred the pot au feu with Canadians over her governments decision making.
One wonders what we would say if another province dissatisfied with our respective governments decision, which voters demanded and affected solely ourselves.
If the majority of voters in Quebec are the ones who elected the Part Quebecois to power, who are we to lambast the decision of a province to change to our way of thinking, right or wrong?
Would it be right for Quebec to scream to the rafters over provincial government decisions which affect only Ontarians, British Columbians, Albertans etc? Cause sure as shootin, you would tell Quebec to mind their own business, and rightly so.
If a Quebecer feel so strongly about this issue, then those who feel hard done by should vote wisely for a different party in the next election if they want change.
Currently there are four provincial political parties in Quebec, certainly vote splitting amongst the other three political parties gave the PQ it's victory.
Choosing wisely does not seem to be priority for those who feel Quebec has pis.sed in their cornflakes, including the non voters since it is the PQ now running the show.
If the next election fails to give you the party you want, then the dissatisfied have a choice as a democracy, either abide or leave the province. After all, last time I checked, it is majority rule which runs the show.
The Quebec Liberals had their kick at the can and obviously failed miserably, if the PQ are in power. Perhaps those who once voted liberal pis.sed their votes away to other parties, including many who chose not to vote, otherwise we would not be having this conversation.
Granted, sometimes life ain't fair, and there are times you won't get what you want, and if you do get it, it is rarely handed to you without working for it.
There is a ancient 4th century phrase by Saint Ambrose " Si fueris Romae, Romano vivito more; si fueris alibi, vivito sicut ibi " Truer words ever uttered!
