The CBC didn't show Duceppe's speech, but you guys should have watched it because he unofficially confirmed what I was fearing the most. Nearly 20 years after the last referendum on Quebec sovereignty, the next campaign for Quebec independence just started. Duceppe appealed for unity of all the different provincial separatist clans (Option Nationale, Parti Québecois, Québec Solidaire, etc) and was acclaimed loudly as he said: "Better to be a country in this world, than a province within Canada".

In case people start talking about the brand-new study saying that Canada under Harper was the MOST FREEST country in the world, I'd like to remind them to question exactly what the Legatum Institute is - which is a right-wing think-tank whose motto is literally "free markets, free minds, free peoples", and is funded by a private group of investors in Dubai. I mean, I'm not saying the elites in the UAE are biased towards neocons and their ilk, but I guess that's exactly what I'm saying.
