Why Justin's Comments Were Justified...

First off, let's get one thing clear: One would be crazy to think Justin meant what he didn't really even say the other day. I mean, who in their right mind would believe the opponents' claim that the hyper-patriotic Justin - growing up at 24 Sussex, whose father GAVE this country it's Charter of Rights, and who wept as he brilliantly eulogized his late father... WHAT sane person could possibly insinuate Trudeau was saying that he "wanted Quebec to separate"?
The FACT is that Justin - like many of us - is fed up with the knuckle-dragging policy created by this "government of stupid". They have NO social conscience - and in a Province where that is paramount, many, many are just as angry. He clearly indicated that it would take this bill and roughly "10,000 other things" that are part of the Harper agenda to make him that disconcerted - but also pretty much indicated, in stating this, that he would not consider it.
Another FACT that many don't want to discuss just yet... but is coming: Stephen Harper and most of his Western Reform Caucus talked about "Firewalls" and wanting an autonomous Alberta at the height of the Chretien years. Anybody in the group of critics probably didn't want to open THAT can of worms... but, believe me, it is open. The Reform/Conservative Western core caucus has a lot of former Western Separatists in it... Remember the old WCC Party (Western Canada Concept)? Guess who supported and funded them?
Firewall Harper is going to be discussed now - BECAUSE, Harper (if he wasn't serious) was simply expressing his anger at the Chretien Liberals not having policy that reflected the positions his rural Alberta voter base espoused. If we're going to discuss Justin's remarks, then Firewall Steve is also fair game.
Let's add one more point here: Justin's comments will stand him in good stead in his riding, and in Quebec, because he has clearly tied himself to the anger seething throughout Quebec against the Harper agenda. He has also done the Liberal Party a huge favor. Standing up and saying it like it is. Not a bad idea. His love - our love - for Canada is the driving factor behind these remarks. I think Quebecers will understand Justin's venting - and moxie - and quietly understand that "Les Rouges" stand shoulder to shoulder with them on matters of most all public policy.
Rogue MP? Doubt it... Justin walks proudly in his father's footsteps. He showed the cajones his father had, and stood up for socially conscious Canadians everywhere. P. E. T. was not some crusty old politico smoothed over by "political correctness" or held back by "poll numbers".... he had moxie and sharply criticized his detractors. Justin showed he has that hin him this past week. For that, we all thank him.

One thing is for sure. If Harper was PM during those referenda the country would not have Quebec in it.

Jaysus, but I'm glad to read someone of the centre/left not kowtowing to the media and Con hackwebbery.

All the whingeing and cringing and apologia emanating from the majority of the centre/left is truly nauseating.

If Harper wins another majority I will be considering finding a way to abandon this sad, benighted fractured country myself. Another 5 years beyond 2015 and there will be nothing left of the country I've loved and I wouldn't have the stomach to stay and watch it become more Kansas than Kansas. Especially when IT DIDN'T HAVE TO FUCKIN' HAPPEN BUT FOR THE IDIOTIC, ARROGANT STUBBORNNESS OF THE LEADERSHIP OF THE NDP AND LPC.

This is well written, and I agree with what you wrote about Justin..but the people should really know about 'The Northern Foundation' that Harper founded, and full of Nazis..would make one throw up!

I fully agree with the writer and also with Carmichael. What astonishes me is that so few immigrants speak out about Harper and the direction he is "leading" us in. Millions of us came to a rock-solid DEMOCRATIC country and not some incipient dictatorship; in fact, many of us came here to escape from one of those. Why is there no outcry?
