Bloc Quebecois Leader Gille Duceppe urged parliamentarians to reject the prime minister's "partisan" tactics as they consider his amended motion declaring that Quebecers form a nation "that is currently within Canada."Because apparently believing that Quebec is part of a united Canada is a "partisan condition."
"We're tabling a motion that respects all sides without subjecting the recognition of a Quebec nation to partisan conditions. Yesterday the prime minister did exactly the opposite. He tabled a motion that recognizes a Quebec nation with a condition attached -- a partisan string attached," Bloc leader Gilles Duceppe said in the House of Commons.
For a minority government, this is going to be a pretty lopsided vote.
