In a democracy you have choice. You are free to choose which political party you want to support, who you vote for, what you believe in, your values and beliefs. However to allow yourself to be used to promote wedge issues, under the guise of secularism, is ignorance masquerading as choice.
The so-called "values charter" is a PQ stalking horse, clearly meant to appeal to and consolidate the Quebecois(e) base, to drive a wedge between cultural communities. This takes away from the real issues of jobs (25,000 lost last month) and the economy (stagnant and declining), as a whole.
If Marois was serious about getting support from the " cultural communities", she would have placed these candidates in safe ridings. Instead she is using them and sacrificing them in unwinnable ones. This is a slap in their face. This is blatant insult. This is " i AM GOING TO USE YOU TO COVER ME AGAINST CHARGES THAT i AM IGNORING THESE CVOMMUNITIES, THAT i AM ISOLATING THEM." Such gall and these " sacrificial ewes" are oblivious.
