Mr. Speaker, yesterday, in Montreal, the president of the Council for Canadian Unity embarked upon the referendum campaign trail, stating he entirely approved of the absence of any new federal offers.
For the Council, unity is tied to the status quo. The renewal of the Canadian federation is not longer an option.
After 30 years of lamentable failure, in this show of honesty the Council is revealing its true colours.
The Council for Canadian Unity which-let us not forget-is subsidized by Ottawa, confirms that Quebecers are to expect nothing better from Ottawa than more duplication, more overlapping and more squandering of their tax dollars. In other words, more of the same.
