Does Mr. Ignatieff actually believe that a statement like "Being equal as Canadians doesn't mean being the same" is actually a revelation? Isn't that multiculturalism? Yes Quebec has a unique history but so does every other province. He notes “Quebec entered the federation on the understanding that its distinguishing features would receive protection.” But how can he seriously suggest that Quebeckers do not already "stand equal before the trials of life" and "benefit equally from life's opportunities"?
Completely agreed... this whole Quebec as a nation notion is intended to grow his support in quebec, and nothing more. He's playing politics with it. This is pretty scary really.. I liked the Ignatieff that supported israel, supported iraq and Afghanistan.
This new "I'll do what makes me popular" attitude is chretien/martin style.. and exactly what Canada DOESN'T need...
But his hipocricy might be a major benefit should the left force an election with him at their helm.
