GUEST,Obie BS: Nation with-in Nation (145* d) RE: BS: Nation with-in Nation 27 Nov 06

Well Cape Breton is indeed a nation! We have a great leader in General John Cabot Trail and if we have to revert to terrorism we will blow up The Causeway. That should seperate us from youse! :-}
A more serious point to ponder though is:
If the first nations in Quebec want to remain in Canada along with their territory should they be allowed to do so? The seperatists say no, that Quebec is indivisable at the same time they claim Canada is divisable. They expect special status as a founding nation, but would not grant the same right to the nation that they found already on those shores.
There is an old expression that you can't spit and swallow ( suck and blow) at the same time.
Before there can be any truly democratic determination we need to answer such questions, but there will never be any political agreement between those who are playing the game.
There are many pressing issues in our country and our planet, but the damn fools that we elect ignore them to fight over nonsense. It is truly a pity and a disgrace!
