I Have Faith in Quebec. So Should You.

Earlier this week, Premier Pauline Marois unveiled her government's much-anticipated plan to legislate values in Quebec. I categorically oppose it. But I have great faith in the people of my home province. My message to Canadians outside Quebec is simple and important: So should you. Resist the temptation to indulge in easy stereotypes and reactive characterizations of Quebec and Quebeckers. The PQ government's plan is divisive, negative and emotional. It is designed to be that way. Quebeckers will reject it. Simply put, this plan does not represent who we are.
