[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.
