I'm certainly not "dissing" you insomuch as i'm taking the moronic, bigoted separatist revisionist cowards to task for being a bunch of anti-intellectual crybabies.

The best way to handle the separatists is ignore them..they feed on negative backlash and hype.. truth is the majority of Quebecers are more concerned about the economy and jobs like the rest of the country.. and Pauline Marois... well shes just a delusional flaming idiot.

No, I disagree the best was to handle separatists is to call them on every stupid complaint. Then publicly show them how small minded and narcissistic they really are, then people would not want to be like them. Make them into the KKK of Canada.

Tell the National Post where to get off
Quote:

I have a bunch of friends at the National Post. Some of them are even on the editorial board, where I used to work. I generally avoid taking gratuitous shots; they do what they do, their base likes it, and when you pry the writers away from their editorials they're normally smart and rational people.

This, though, has to be the one of the stupidest and most irresponsible editorials we've seen in this country, which is undoubtedly saying something.

Because a goofy historical re-enactment - possibly the most beside-the-point controversy imaginable in the midst of an economic crisis - was cancelled, the Post's editorialists are basically asking the federal government to reignite the sovereignty movement.

And because the Conservatives didn't win many seats in Quebec in the last campaign, and might win even fewer there next time, those editorialists can't see any reason why our national governing party would want to avoid reigniting the sovereignty movement.

Thankfully, even Stephen Harper isn't that partisan. Granted, the Prime Minister did go slightly in this direction in December, alienating anyone who supports the Bloc Quebecois in order to save his government. But he's probably not going to actively try to tear apart the country in retaliation for low polling numbers - or in retaliation for a bunch of history buffs not being allowed to run around in costumes.

Also cause for thanks is that the National Post is not exactly required reading for francophone Quebecers, so its ability to create the backlash it's so eager for is limited. But that's not to say that the editorial has passed totally unnoticed.

The “official tabloid for the hyper-militant faction of a movement," as Chantal Hebert describes it, is a little harsh. Like I said, I have a lot of friends there, and the vast majority of them couldn't care less about historical re-enactments. But you're begging for that kind of reaction when you run an editorial like this.

I know guy from another forum who does military re-enactments for WWII. He's been in contact with a few of those who were to participate in Quebec City and says they're quite surprised and disappointed in this. Here's a reply he sent me.
"This event, I know as a fact, has been re-enacted on the Plains of Abraham on at least 4 other occasions in recent years with great respect and success. Some of the folks I re-enact with also do this historical period and have been there ... no problems before this!
Even the separatist re-enactors are p***ed-off apparently! Had coffee at Tim's this a.m. with a teacher friend - a buddy/re-enactor vet - who is in touch with the community often - he indicated that The Plains of Abraham battle was going to be a huge event ... with day 2 of the battle scenario dedicated to the battle at Ste Foy where French forces kicked English asses!"


Ignorant morons.............

Those extremists at the centre of the controversy are pretty much a joke. :lol:

A bit off the thread topic in itself but relevant is Patrick Bourgeois and the RRQ. Those are simply ridiculous and embarrasing to their own cause. They have a site in French. Journal Le Quebecois
