Mr. Speaker, in a speech yesterday to the Foreign Policy Association in New York, the separatist premier of Quebec reiterated that his priority will be to focus on public finances and economic development in Quebec.
We are happy to see that the pequiste leader has finally seen the light in deciding to look at the economy rather than continuing to waste money and energy to promote a separatist dream.
People in Canada and in Quebec want their governments to work on economic recovery, job creation and putting their fiscal house in order.
If he wants to be taken seriously by investors both on Wall Street and in Quebec and Canada, the separatist leader must put an end to
the separatist threat looming over Quebec. This is a necessary step to economic recovery in Quebec.
