Oppose the Québécois Motion

This is the part I missed [Andrew Coyne, Opposed]:

[W]hatever the precise technicalities of the wording, the idea that will enter the political bloodstream is that "Quebec" has been so recognized.

My argument that I could support the Québécois motion got wrapped up in that very question of semantics, and less of what the "semantics" actually signifies.

I'm convinced I was wrong, and this motion must be defeated. Let the Bloc pass these types of divisive motions, and be soundly defeated.

Updated: I'm surrounded by smart people. Go read Wayne's take at Progressive Bloggers.

Jim,

I made the very same mistake, almost identical, and the very same recantation, almost identical.

Ah well, live and learn.
