The Bloc Quebecois resorting to blackmail?

I try not to discuss issues of “culture” too much – mostly because my thoughts aren’t politically correct – but once in a while something happens that really can’t be ignored.  This time, it’s Gilles Duceppe’s threat to topple the government unless Quebec is a $5-billion package. Yes – straight-up blackmail.

That’s $ 5,000,000,000.00 he wants to be spent solely on Quebec, or the Bloc will attempt to bring down Harper’s minority.

As far as I am concerned, Mr. Duceppe is welcome to force an election.  I would like the opportunity for the rest of Canada to show him exactly what we think of his threats.
