Caution: Philippe Couillard May Contain Traces of Pauline Marois' Ideals

Premier Marois sought to achieve her goals in spectacularly absurd fashion -- a separate country for French-Canadians and a ban on religious headgear for everyone else -- and on Monday, her extremism was rejected. Hardly definitively, however. The Parti Quebecois remains Quebec's official opposition, and the rise of new nationalist parties, coupled with a sharp split in the popular vote, suggests much of the Marois agenda has merely scattered elsewhere. More than a trace can even be found in Mr. Couillard.

Dear Madame Marois: You Are Wrong About the People of Quebec

I can't help but suspect your motives, Mme. Marois. It seems that you are trying to turn nous inside-out by cynically using the trust that we have in our leaders against us. The Charter seems to be an effort to convince the majority of Québécois who do not live in Montréal or Québec, where cultural and religious diversity is the quiet background to our daily lives, that they have something to fear from those who are different. You seem to be telling them that they have special privileges and that the only way to preserve them is to deny the rights of others.
