Like most anglophones outside Quebec, and maybe some within in, I think Gilles Duceppe is the bee's knees. But I find his recent attack on Michael Ignatieff more than a little amusing:
The Bloc doesn't mention that Mr. Ignatieff's ancestors were part of the czarist regime in Russia. Mr. Duceppe nonetheless attacks Mr. Ignatieff for treating Quebeckers with “aristocratic scorn” when he recognizes the Quebec nation, all the while “stamping all over our differences and our choices.”Because if anyone knows an aristocrat when he sees one it's Gilles Duceppe, god love him.
I mean, with polls showing the Ignatieff-led Liberals either neck-in-neck with the BQ in Quebec, or even ahead of them, mon ami Gilles needs to do something to blunt the growing Liberal momentum in Quebec. But Gilles calling Michael aristocratic would be like Jack Layton making fun of someone's mustache. Recommend this Post on Progressive Bloggers
