Queens and Separatists

No, the two are not interchangeable…

Gilles Duceppe is offended that the Queen of England would want to attend a ceremony honoring the 400th anniversary of the founding of Quebec City. We could always invite the French Monarch, but oh wait, never mind…

Newsflash Duceppe

Read your license plate, do you remember who won?

Ok good…

Who is the Canadian head of state? Queen Elizabeth II

Yes, Ca-Na-Da the country Quebec joined in 1867 and the province that voted twice to stay in Canada. I know it’s a foreign concept to you Gilles, but Canada still exists and if the head of state wants to come to a big celebration of our country’s history, she can come, and the people will love her…

I guess good old Duceppe is just sharpening the knives, he’ll have to stab some Queen in the back soon enough…

She is, in fact, also the Queen of Canada.

Gérald Larose is also going bonkers over this. Him and Duceppe remind me of a John Cleese joke, circa Clinton scandal era 'When we, monarchists, kneel in front of our Queen, we do it on one knee'. Duceppe and Larose have no problem whatsoever with a visit from the President of France - indeed why not the Queen of Canada.

LOL! You're too funny. But seriously, if they don't want her there, then she doesn't have to get an invite. Why stir the pot? Just send Michaelle there, to show them how grace and honour can be one.
