Yolande Thibeault, the former (Liberal) MP for Saint-Lambert...despaired at the treatment given Mr. Dion by his fellow Quebecers. "For some reason, Quebecers, we do not like each other," she said. "It is not only in politics. It is in many other domains. If a businessman is very successful, he will be pulled down by our people. It seems to be the mentality of Quebecers."
So it's not that the people of Quebec don't like Dion because of his weak leadership, and his actions as the bespectacled bully of confederation, no, it's because he is so successful. What?
If what this Liberal says is true, why aren't they at the gates of Celine Dion's mansion, with the pitchforks, tar, etc?
Because it's not true. Thibeault is throwing out excuses and slurs to cover the fact that Stephane Dion just is not an attractive option. Rather, he is the Montreal Mistake.
Free advice to the Liberal Party: Next time, perhaps don't let the booze flow quite so freely at your leadership convention. When people drink, accidents happen.
