[...]Public Works Minister Michael Fortier, who was at the same reception as Dion and Duceppe, said the Liberal leader is addressing a matter that was settled months ago.Think they know exactly what they're doing by continuously using the term "Quebecois"...it's called pandering, footsie, nodding to the nationalist sentiment in Quebec...insert your favourite term.
But when asked to define the Quebecois nation himself, Fortier said Quebecers know what it means.
"Today the people who are celebrating the Fete nationale, on June 24th, are Quebecois, they are people in Quebec," he said.
"There are people who are celebrating outside Quebec but it is in Quebec where the Fete nationale is celebrated. I think this debate was settled in November."
