“A guy like Chrétien don’t like separatists very much, whoever they are.”

The words of former PM Jean Chretien, Nov 2007: “A guy like Chrétien don’t like separatists very much, whoever they are.”

Forget for a minute that he is eerily speaking in the third person and then think back to his role in negotiating the coalition involving the separatist Bloc Quebecois and contrast that to the above statement.

How very typical of a Liberal politician, say one thing and do another. He doesn't like separatists, even if that separatist is the Dalai Lama, but he is more that willing to overlook that and deal with Canadian separatists if that helps the Liberal Party of Canada fulfill its goal of power in this country no matter the cost.

Is anyone surprised?

Speaking of JC; it would seem that he forgot to destroy the photos of his meeting with the Dalai Lama before denying that he had met with him.

Again, is anyone really surprised?

Dahlai Lama ...a separatist. Okay, then you obviously believe in the oppressive rule of a one party state. Wait a're an Alberta Tory. Now I get why you don't like democracy. One party rule is bad for a democracy. I don't care how much patronage you and your cronies get. A competetive democracy is good for citizens.

You're a buffoon.

"One party rule is bad for a democracy."

So Anony, I guess you are for a three party rule huh.

And what is all this about do realize that even with 18 appointments to the senate; the Liberals will still have a more seats.

And speaking of buffoons - maybe you can tell us your opinion about the Liberals literally taking money out of your pockets in the EI scam. Shows what great fiscal managers they are.

So how come it was only a one day story, Anony....don't you think the Libs stealing more money should make the news?

JC called him a separatist not me.

"“I respect him as a great religious leader, but for the Chinese, he is a separatist leader,” Chrétien said at the time. “A guy like Chrétien don’t like separatists very much, whoever they are.”"

I guess the voters of Alberta, you know the ones that have chosen a PC government since the 1970s, are just bad for democracy.

Hey ANON 1, Why don't you READ the link before throwing out all of the slanderous misery, that you call a comment. It was your beloved Chretien that said it....

It would appear that POWER trumps SEPERATISTS with, JC?
That integrity and principles thing got lost rather often in 13 years.

Who cares if Chretien doesn't like separatists. He didn't like Albertans in the first place.
