QUESTIONS

        Jason as usual asks a question to which a response will be forthcoming.

        Others have sent responses to "The term NATION: A primer.

        Having spent 6 hours on the road to-day and five or so slapping what follows together no responses -  mine or others tonight.

        Two questions though:

        Whose view of what was accepted last night is your view, that of Lawrence Cannon or the other person?;

        Which of the "competing conservative visions " would you support were you an Albertan PC Card hoolder voting this week end?

        Subject: Re: The term NATION: A Primer

        Joe:

        Assuming that you supported Meech and C-town in the 80's / 90's (if that assumption's wrong, please correct me), do you - and other DD readers who claim to be  "progressive conservatives" - still think that Quebec is a "distinct society"?
 
        I'll be interested in the response to that question, as well as responses to the motion intro'd yesterday, once the DD resumes its regular broadcast special.
 
        Best,
 
        - Jason.

         Harper's Quebec lieutenant, Lawrence Cannon, didn't clear matters up when he alternately referred to Quebecers and Quebecois, and said any      "taxpayer" who cast a vote in the last Quebec referendum is part of the definition of nation.    http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Canada/2006/11/23/2461197-cp.html

        It's important to distinguish that the motion refers to recognizing the Quebecois, the people, as a nation within Canada, which is not the same as      recognizing Quebec, the province, as a nation within Canada. Further, the key is that it refers to a united Canada, and does not require another        unwanted round of constitutional restructuring negotiations.     http://www.therecord.com/NASApp/cs/ContentServer?pagename=record/Layout/Article_Type1&c=Article&cid=1164581414280&call_pageid=1024322168441&col=1024322597709
