Quebec sovereignists lack credibility
I came across this graphic from The Canadian Press which is very telling. It demonstrates one of many reason why Quebec's sovereignty movement has a long way to go before it can gain respect internationally.
You can read my more elaborate argument in The National Post, but from where I stand, Quebec's separation insecurity manifests itself in these silly, convoluted referendum questions, while the Scots keep things simple (paging Thomas Mulcair...don't touch the Clarity Act or you'll only boost separatists).
The Scots have more faith in their movement and, as a result, tried to distance themselves from Pauline Marois and Quebec this week. Why? Because we're sovereignty losers, and it's time we accept that.
