POLITICS AS USUAL: JEAN-DROPPING STATEMENT
Oh, how the worm turns.
This lovely quote appeared in today's Montreal Gazette:
“The government will do whatever it takes to stop the English language from gaining ground in the workplace, Premier Jean Charest said yesterday.
"We will always be very vigilant in Quebec on the issue of language," Charest said. "We will always be very rigorous in measuring how we're doing. ... That's the very essence of the mandate that any government of Quebec has."
You know what? He might be right. But he just eliminated his chances of becoming the leader of the Conservative Party or, in my opinion, becoming Prime Minister.
That might not be such a bad thing.
