A buncha Newfoundlanders seem to be a bit riled, and it’s an interesting riled. Kate at Roadkill Diaries quotes a politician:
A recent proverb states that “eagles may soar, but weasels don’t get sucked into jet engines.” Unfortunately, in Canada, since 1945, it is the weasels who are the most successful in getting into power and are there now. The PM and his colleagues weasel to the discredit of the reputation of Canada — equivocating, quibbling, defaulting on and getting out of obligations.”
The issue, as I understand it (help me out Candepundit!), is that Paul Martin went to go have a “friendly” visit to see Khadafi, and the Newfoundland leaders are so mad they took the Maple Leaf flags off the buildings! N.B.: This ain’t Quebec we’re talking about, either.
A Newfoundlander named CPT Craig (former aviator) is one angry man about the flap.
Wouldn’t that be a hoot, a coup in Canada? Imagine this Globe and Mail headline. â€The Salvation Army seizes power and federal forces are holed up in the Diefenbunker and suing for peace.â€ What a pathetic and global embarrassment. Know what? Newfoundland could declare independence and Ottawa couldn’t do a damn thing about it. All federal facilities could be taken over in a matter of hours and then what would Ottawa do? Call the UN for help?
He’s got more ranting about it here.
