Noah Richler: Québeckers Don't Want Seperation, We Want Better
If ever it really did look like Québec was coming close to separation, I'd move back in a flash. There'd be no way I'd let the province secede and me be without my home and the Péquistes without the thorn of me in their side. I'd also be there because I like what Québeckers are demanding. But separation isn't going to happen. Québeckers want a better society, a better representation of their views. We could do worse than look for an example to a territory that, using whatever tools circumstances have placed in its reach, demands the change that elections can bring.
Conrad Black: Pauline Marois Is More Quebec's Prisoner Than its Leader
The brilliance of the result of the Quebec election is in the rejection of the government without any real endorsement of the Parti Quebecois or its program. The apparent, emergent premier, the desperately unimpressive Pauline Marois, a bag lady where some distinguished statesmen have preceded her, is, politically speaking, a prisoner in her own body. The PQ barely squeezed ahead of the Liberals, in votes and parliamentary strength, while fudging whether they would even hold a referendum on an ambiguous question. This is a cruel, vegetative state for Ms. Marois, a strident separatist. This brilliant election changed governments without breaking any furniture or burning any bridges.
Deborah Coyne: Hey Harper, Take the PQ Win as a Chance to Step it Up
The advent of a PQ government in Quebec is both a challenge and an opportunity for Canada. This is a time for renewed national leadership that reaches out to Canadians to offers an overarching vision for Canada in the 21st century -- one where a strong federal government works with the provinces. I look forward to working with Quebecers and all Canadians to build a 21st century Canada -- one Canada, for all Canadians.
J.J. McCullough: Media Bites: Auto-Tweets After a Shooting? Coverage Should Fit the Crime
2012-04-27-mediabitesreal.jpg As a man lay dead and Canadians sat glued to their social media feeds patiently awaiting updates on the appalling violence that struck Tuesday night's Parti Quebecois victory rally, the trickle of breaking news from the nation's top commentators was frequently interrupted by cryptically off-topic offerings from otherwise credible sources. If nothing else, it was a reminder of the perils of setting up one of those time-delayed auto-tweeters.
John Izzo: Romney and Harper Fiddle as Earth Burns
While evidence mounts that climate change and sustainability may be the security issue of our generation, both Romney and Canadian Prime Minister Harper seem completely unaware that it even matters. Ironically, Romney like Harper, is out of sync not only with the scientists but even with major corporations and the Pentagon.
