Is Quebec seperation an election issue?

The Bloc's leader Gilles Duceppe has called for Quebec to have it's own national hockey team to compete in international events and more. The Bloc has already been very pro seperation, is Duceppe taking the attempts to the next level?

The choice of Quebec voters will be fairly important this election. If we see the Block take the majority of seats in Quebec, we may see another repeat of the seperation vote with millions of taxpayers dollars being spent selling Canada to Quebec - something that could lead to another sponsorship scandal.

Of course, if we see the Block take a major hit this election, we might see this crisis sent to the recycling bin.

So, we have two very opposite roads to choose from, this could go either way.

  • It should be. Canadians should ask themselves: "How on earth can we expect to beat the separatists in an upcoming referendum if the party that would be in power federally is the one that tried to buy Québec's votes with their own money and tarnished Québec's reputation across the country?" In the name of national, STAND UP FOR CHANGE! STAND UP FOR CANADA!

  • It is an issue. All around school people talk of how Quebec could actually have the power to seperate while others have snorted and said that would be impossible. Some have even gone as far as to say that Quebec could seperate for all we could care. Duceppe is causing trouble for the liberals but who's to blame for that? Obviously we're not making a good show of trying to keep Quebec.
