duceppe's farewell tour?

Well, I can always dream The bloc has little else when it comes to campaigning. duceppe is the party. I suspect it would die more quickly when he retires. He now understands that Quebeckers don't want his option, so now he is trying to get Canadians to embrace Quebec independence. He will have little success. When will Quebeckers realize the bloc does nothing for them and actually harms their interests.
Cutting political welfare is a first step. The pq and the bq share some offices etc and that is paid for by Canadian taxpayers. Tine to end Canad's funding of those who wish to destroy her.

MONTREAL — A deal like the Meech Lake accord, which would have recognized Quebec as a distinct society, wouldn't be enough today to convince Quebecers to reject sovereignty, says Gilles Duceppe.

"Certainly not," the Bloc Quebecois leader told The Canadian Press in an interview Monday. "We're no more a distinct society. We're a distinct nation." And even if any new constitutional offers were forthcoming, they just wouldn't be good enough, Duceppe said.

"The best thing is to have two sovereign countries collaborating in a large economic body and even political body, just like the countries did in Europe," he said.

Duceppe begins the first leg of a cross-country tour on Tuesday to get Canadians' opinions about Quebec sovereignty, starting with a meeting with university students in Frederiction, N.B.

He'll also talk to francophone organizations and visit the C.D. Howe Institute, a Toronto-based think-tank, as well as appear on a TV interview show.

After doing the Atlantic provinces and Toronto this week, he'll head to Calgary next week, where he'll meet with Tom Flanagan, a University of Calgary political scientist and former chief of staff to Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

The problem is that most grassroots Canadians would probably be quite glad to see Quebec leave. People with no financial interest in that province could care less.

The Bloc have no treaty rights in Quebec. They can board a plane, a train, a car, a ship and leave anytime they are no longer interested in this Confederation called Canada.
