Sugar Sammy poster hits raw nerve with Quebec nationalists

Many Quebec nationalists are upset with a post on comedian Sugar Sammy's Facebook page.

The post — which has since been taken down — is a poster advertising some upcoming shows in Montreal. It shows premier Pauline Marois and Toronto mayor Rob Ford side-by-side, with the caption, "Who would you choose as your leader, Marois or Rob Ford? I actually trust the crackhead more."

Ford admitted to having smoked crack cocaine in the past week.

The post didn't go over very well with many who took to Twitter today, many of whom saw the post in bad taste, and others saw it as another example of 'Quebec bashing'.

Others, however, suggested that former premier Jean Charest was treated just as badly, if not worse, by the same people.

    I'll trust Rob Ford over Marois any day of the week. I actually cannot think of anyone who I would trust less than Marois now that I think of it.

    Most Quebecor's see the Charter of no values as bad taste and immigrant bashing too.

    On a day when we remember those who gave their lives for the freedoms we all enjoy here it is a shameful time for all Quebecor's to even have such a devisive bill on the floor of our National Assembly.

    People need to learn take a joke.I think the individuals that didnt see the humour would support Marois no matter what she does.I bet if you take the fact that she french canadian out of the equation Quebecers would see that economically speaking she's doing a horrible job, just look at the numbers.In no way did it ever mention anything about Quebec or French Canadians

    Good on you Sammy. And Pauline, it's called freedom of speech a foreign concept to you and your clique.

    The Nationalist are upset with this? I don't think they have any ideas how the minorities feeling about the charter bill less alone the Anglos. It comes with the territory.

    He should NEVER have taken the post down. He's a comedian joking about clowns. The people who get upset over stuff like that are the same people who walk around with a chip on their shoulders and think the whole world is against them. Grow up already!

    Here is proof that the nationalist can't handle the truth.

    I hope the comedians who will be performing at next year's Just For Laughs festival are paying attention to Sugar Sammy and Super Marois's Charter of PQ Values. There is and will be SO much to write about and Sugar Sammy is just getting the ball rolling.
    Thank you Sammy.

    Queen Pauline hits a raw nerve with me every day

    ....but most of us would trust the Crackhead more. Even Trudeau, who also admitted to smoking drugs, did so on his time and hurt no one in the process. Aunt Pauline is roughing us up and we're paying her to do so.
    Good for you Sammy! I believe I can live with the Nationalists being upset.

    The French media trashes the English all the time and there is no problem . When the English say something negative it is quebec bashing. The more upset the nationalists get the happier I am. This pq ship of fools are impersonating a government and ruining the future of all quebeckers. This government should be arrested and thrown in jail once and for good.

    I'll take Ford any day. You've got to love his straight forwardness. Ok, the guy is a fruitcake, but at least he is only hurting himself. Marois is hurting an entire province.
