Quebec - The REAL Election 2006 Question

We're going to be going into an election early next year. I've been doing some thinking lately, and I've come to realize something that I don't think anyone else has yet realized. There is going to be a much larger question posed to the Canadian people than the average federal election. This time, it's going to be a national referendum on a single, all important question. It's not simply going to be a choice of your preferred political party, be it NDP, Liberal, or Conservative. It's going to be a single, national question, that each of us will will be voting on.

And the single, unavoidable question will be this;

"Should Quebec seperate?"

Now, you are thinking, "Where on earth does he get that idea from?" And I don't blame you, because I've heard nothing of the sort either; I think I'm the first one to propse the question. But I've been thinking long and hard about it, and I'm convinced that when we go to the polls, that's the question that we will be answering that day. When we place our "X" on the ballot, we will be pronouncing our verdict on the makeup the nation of Canada.

And a vote for the Liberal Party will be a vote for Quebec soverignty.

When you take the time to truely consider what has been going on in politics these last few years, my last statement will make perfectly logical sense. It is Justice Gomery who has shed some light on this situation for us.

When the Sponsorship program was implemented in 1995, its stated goal was to raise the profile of Canada in the province of Quebec. While I think this was in fact a noble goal, as we're all well aware, something went awry. We all know how money was misused, and the fallout that has occured in the province of Quebec. But I want to propose to you a new train of thought that to me, will be the defining question of the next election.

First of all, the Liberal Party of Canada, in power as the Government of Canada, made the decision to fund the Sponsorship program. They, in essence, thought that the province of Quebec could be bought. And that's why there is such an outcry in that province, that's why there is so much anger against the Liberals. That's why some are predicting that the Liberal Party might even be wiped out in the province of Quebec, save for Paul Martin's seat in Montreal. (that may even be at risk... watch for him to run elsewhere, like Ontario)

Secondly, the stronghold of the Liberal Party of Canada has always been Ontario. With 106 seats, and the most urban areas of the nation, it is the Holy Grail of the federal parties. No party can form a government without vote rich Ontario. Each party leader spends more time here than any other region of the country. And it's Ontario that has the decades old love affair with the Liberal Party.

So, Ontario, the heart of central Canada, supports the Liberal Party. The very same Liberal Party that has slapped the face of the province of Quebec. If Ontario once again supports a corrupt party that has slapped them in the face, do you really think they will have any desire whatsoever stick around with the rest of us?

Make no mistake, there will be another referendum in the next 5-10 years. And if once again, Canadians have on mass displayed their support of the party that has insulted them, they will, without hesitation, vote "Oui" to the question of soverinty next time around. And it will be, in large part, because Ontario has supported the Liberal Party of Canada in the next election.

When you go to the ballot box in 2006, remember that you will be making a momentous choice regarding the future of Canada. Remember that you will be sending a message to the province of Quebec. Remember that you will be voting not only for a party, but for the very makeup of our nation as we know it today.

If you lean left, vote NDP. If you lean right, vote Conservative. If you are on the fence... don't vote. If you choose to vote Liberal, you are voting to destroy Canada as we know it.

    I have often thought of this strategy: make the Liberals responsible for the alienation of Quebec. However, I don't believe that we've been hammering home this message (if at all). Without proper messaging and time, Ontario voters will not be able to connect these pieces together.

    The Liberals are cynical. Might they be tempted to use a Quebec alienation strategy to try and win support in English speaking Canada or am I living in the past regarding attitudes to Quebec.

    I know it goes against everything they were supposed to stand for, but these guys will be history within the next 10-20 years and they will do anything to cling on to their even diminishing hold on power.

    Another Liberal will also boost Alberta's Independance movement.
    Alberta may separate before Quebec does.
