It seems Quebec’s cultural rhetoric machine is in full swing again.
This week coming out with their charter of Quebec values sure to flap the feathers of just about everyone in the province except those that are French and white.
It lists restrictions on all kinds of head gear and other religious symbols worn by those with public sector jobs, complete with a chart of what’s acceptable and what is not.
Sounds like something out of Hitler’s day.
What is really fascinating in all of this is the PQ have a minority government and there isn’t a snowballs chance in hell this will see the light of day.
Federally, it’s even a bigger can of worms.
Not to mention the cost of the policing such an act and the litigation from those fired from jobs for not complying.
It’s a labour lawyers dream case!
So why raise a ruckus for another exercise in cultural futility?
Because it’s an emotional issue that takes attention away from things like the corruption, lack of efficiency, job loss, and the general distain Quebecers have with what their province has become.
A shadow of its former self.
You can keep your distinct society.
I don’t want any part of it.
I’m Scott Thompson.
