Charter more fuel for the separation fire

It wants to prove that Quebec is not like the other provinces and should be its own country.

Re: “Quebec charter a dirty political trick,” Letters, The Leader, Sept. 17.

The Quebec Charter of Values is in conflict of, and in opposition to, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and is designed to create as much controversy and animosity as possible between the province of Quebec and the rest of Canada in order to prove that Quebec is not like the other provinces and should be its own country.

You can add the charter of Quebec to Bill 101, the language bill, as well as the Quebec Pension Plan and the Quebec health care plan (versus the Canada health care plan) as paving the road to separation for Quebec.

There is a lot of opposition in Quebec to the Quebec Charter of Values; Quebec would have the economy of Greece if it wasn’t for equalization payments. Without Canada, Quebec would have to accept foreign aid.

Quebec is a long way from winning a referendum on separation. That does not mean they will not keep trying.
