UPDATE: Voters not happy with Lib "nation" idea
In a telephone survey of 1,000 people conducted this week, respondents were more than twice as likely - 40.4% versus 16.3% - not to vote Liberal in the next election if the party symbolically recognized Quebec as a nation.**********
"I think the fact of the matter is, outside Quebec, it's just not on," said SES Research president Nik Nanos.
There has been much brouhaha over Michael Ignatieff saying he recognized the “nation” of Quebec. But maybe Iggy just really likes the idea of nations.
After all, his youth web site is www.iggynation.ca. This all raises some serious questions that may wreak havoc on our constitution.
Can someone be part of the Iggynation, but keep Canada as their country? Martha Hall Findlay will ask how many women are in Iggynation. If there are simply a lot of men in Iggynation, then Scott Brison might be interested in coming over.
