Ever Heard This One?

A French politician makes a vague, disinterested remark in support of Quebec sovereignty and federalist Canadian politicians issue stern response exhorting said French leader to stay out of our business. It seems to have been happening off and on ever since de Gaulle.

I think the hype about Mme. Royal's remarks, along with all the server space spent on Wajid Khan indicates that we are in a lull in Canadian politics. Big things are going to happen this year, including elections in Ontario and Quebec as well as possibly a federal vote. In the meantime, we'll content ourselves with these sorts of tales I suppose.
