I think we can agree with the separatists, this amounts to their single greatest achievement in 30 years. They were not so lucky turning back Paul McCartney, but a bunch of geeks in costumes? Crushed like bugs on a windshield.
And its a terrific message to send the world: here in Quebec, hatreds and humiliations linger for centuries. A man, born in 1974, can harbor resentments from events that happened over 400 years ago. Here in Quebec, we say that’s normal and healthy.
So, my Serbian, Kosovar, Bosnian friends: remember that battle 800 years ago? We agree! You should still be pissed.
And my friends in the middle east, remember the crusades? You should still be pissed.
Ukranians should still hate Mongolians. Hungarians should hate Turks. And the english still have every right to covet Brittany.
At least, that’s how we see it in vibrant, confident Quebec.
