Awesome! Definitely drop me a pm if you want any suggestions on places to see, etc. I hope you'll go to Dogon!

No worries, J I wasn't necessarily making a declaration, I was playing on the fact that you assumed I'm NOT Québécoise based on where I currently live and my accent. For what it's worth, I am one generation removed from pure laine on one side, first generation Canadian on the other (a Brit parent).

He's also already managed to completely ostracize Albertans with talk of taxing the oil fields.

No, Alberta's attempt passed, the issue was that Marriage and Divorce fall under federal jurisdiction. It may sound like semantics but it isn't. A good way of seeing the difference between this and an actual failed attempt is to look at Alberta's 1998 effort to override shield legislation.
I think you're picking for a snowball fight.

It is partly semantics, Anitram. The critical point is that the notwithstanding clause has not been used, thankfully, to the extent that was once predicted 26 years ago. I think this fact speaks volumes on the overwhelming sense of social values that Canadians (including Quebeckers) share.

I keep replaying it to see the reactions of the members behind Layton. __________________
