Prime Minister Paul Martin hammered on the theme of national unity as his campaign swept through Quebec on Wednesday, but couldn't put the sponsorship scandal behind him.
"National unity is an issue in this election," said the Liberal leader. "(Bloc Leader) Gilles Duceppe formed a pact with [new Parti Quebecois Leader] Andrew Boisclair. They said this election is the first step on the way to a referendum. Gilles Duceppe will put it on the table. What we're saying (is), we're going to defend Canada.Give me strength. The Liberals, with their corruption in the sponsorship scandal, have done extreme damage to the federalist cause in Quebec. If today, we have a resurgence of the Parti Quebecois and the Bloc Quebecois, we can thank the political party Paul Martin leads. Quebecers are outraged, and for the first time in some time, I agree with them.
"I can tell you right now we're not going to allow the separatists to divide Quebec families," added Martin. "We're not going to allow separatists to divide this country."
To see the Liberals now posturing as defenders of this federation in this campaign is so contrary to the truth I think I'll need to travel with a barf bag in hand for the next two months. Good grief. He is completely shameless.
