Well, I think we can officially say that Ottawa has stopped this fall's flirtation with decorum and raised levels of debate. Today, in response to questions from the Bloc Quebecois, Government House Leader John Baird had this to say (see below.) Yes, the "coalition" is no longer a mere band of pirates -- they're terrorists! Scary terrorists from the 1970s!
Hon. John Baird (Leader of the Government in the House of Commons, CPC) Hon. John Baird (Leader of the Government in the House of Commons, CPC): Mr. Speaker, I will do no such thing.
But let us look at the facts. The Bloc Québécois member of Parliament for Brome—Missisquoi is openly promoting, Réseau de résistance du Québecois on his blog.
Members of the House will know what the manifesto of the RRQ says. The RRQ aims to support the commands of the Front du Liberation due Quebec.
I really want to know how possibly could the Liberal Party of Canada join in a coalition government with people who want to promote the record of the FLQ?
