If we desire a majority, eliminate Bloc Quebecois

I can’t help but think that the only way to get a majority in this country is to eliminate the Bloc Quebecois.

I can’t help but think that the only way to get a majority in this country is to eliminate the Bloc Quebecois.

To do that, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has to announce that in the next federal election, all parties must have a candidate running in at least 50 per cent of the federal ridings across Canada. If they can’t or do not run in 50 per cent, they would not be qualified for party status and all the goodies that go with that. Not having party status they would have to sit as Independents. (They have to go.)

Why are we paying 48 separatists approximately $100,000 each year and their only agenda is to break apart the country?

I know Harper won’t get many votes in Quebec.

The Quebecois say we pay taxes, too. Well, I say pick a federal party. They represent all of Canada, including Quebec. The federal government is giving you millions to fix your bridges in Montreal and many other projects (Bombardier is an example of hundreds of millions).

Maybe we should splinter the Canadian federation a little more and start the Bloc Alberta Party and not vote on anything good for Canada, just good for Alberta. Gee, what a novel idea. Does that sound familiar?

If the Liberals had their way, we would be flying biplanes and dropping hand grenades in Libya. I don’t think the Bloc would help fix bridges in Red Deer.

We really do need a majority. Come on over you people on the wrong side of the fence. Please tell me how wrong I am. Sock it to me, sock it to me (if you’re old enough to remember what that is). Go Harper!
