The Fedaralist Sovereigntist Party?

Even though the current NDP leader does consider herself a federalist. recent events begs the Question is the NDP turning into the Bloc trying to look like the Bloc?

Some would be quick to say No, but consider this Jack Layton even said that Quebec only needs 50% +1 to be it's own country after the election. The NDP has moved much of it's policy towards pleasing Quebec while still calling itself a federalist party. The NDP even named a new leader from Quebec. Even though there are many other MP's in the party that come from other parts of the country (that by the way have loads of experience more than their current interim leader). The NDP are trying to hold on to their new found friend Quebec. Even though they will definitely lead to problems. They can't image themselves somewhat pro the idea of Quebec allowed to be it's own country or having more power, and be completely for federal unity and a central goverment. The Conservatives are going to have a field day. Being in Montreal I can hear the new ads being targeted at federalist in the island. If the NDP don't start to think as too what kind of party they would like to be seen by Quebec then Harper will do it for them. Which means Montreal could start to turn more red and blue with only a little orange on the side. The NDP may not be the Bloc, but if they keep trying to keep former sovereigntist to their campaign it may mean trouble in the other side's of the country. Which would be a good thing for the Liberals and Conservatives.

    So?

    I don't agree that 50% + 1 is enough of a majority vote on ANY issue, but if Layton or anyone else interprets democracy that way, that's their right.

    pleasing Quebec while still calling itself a federalist party. The NDP even named a new leader from Quebec.

    OH MY GOD!!! A NEW LEADER FROM - GASP! - QUEBEC!!!!!! How dare they call themselves a federalist party with a fucking QUEBECKER heading the team!!!??? WHAT THE F***?!

    Oh, you're just jealous because the Orange Team has Quebec and your own Red Team doesn't. So typical and so lame.


    Is it weird that Layton chose Nychole Turmel over, say, Mulcair? Sure, I agree - it's weird. Your post is nigh-illiterate and paranoid.


    The most popular G-G is on film toasting the separatist cause and the current PM would have joined the Bloc Alberta if there'd only been one.

  2. BTW I love "Two Montrealers and a Libertarian"... That's like saying "Two New Yorkers and a Communist" ie. it means and says nothing. Is one of the Montreals also a libertarian? Is it two Montrealers and a non-Montrealer who is a libertarian?

    I very much enjoyed your the comment, and the humor, but the point was to show that the NDP is making is trying to image itself like a Bloc federalist party (that supports representing Quebec and fighting for Quebec, but is against federalism while still supporting Quebec rights to be considered somewhat autonomous), by pushing their policies to be more Quebec friendly.

    I don't think that having a leader from Quebec is bad (Stephan Dion was the best), but the fact they took a rookie MP from Quebec and all the other things they have done shows that they are trying to continue to persuade Quebec to stay with the NDP. Which means they will have an Image problem on there hands being too much like a Sovereignty party.

    Also about the "Two Montrealers and a Libertarian" thing all three of us our Montrealer's .
