Globe reporter states Harper “breathed life into Parti Québécois”

An astounding first paragraph by the Globe and Mail’s Rheal Seguin:

Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s move to transform Canada has breathed new life into the Parti Québécois, which after being battered for weeks by internal divisions is now rallying behind Leader Pauline Marois’ opposition to Ottawa’s conservative agenda. (see here)

Notice that there are no quotations used or reference that it was spoken by someone else.  It is written as a statement of fact by Seguin with no evidence to back up the assertion and is in Globe’s News/Politics section and not Opinion.

Curious to see if this will be the Globe’s new public editor’s first chance to show us readers “how decisions are made” at her newspaper?

    Yeah, well good luck with that. The Globe ALWAYS publishes opinion in ALL of its sections, and considers that to be ‘fair and balanced’. So therefore no need for any explanations to the vile publc. The Public Editor today was busy explaining why the Globe missed catching a dubious ad before running it. Like anyone cared.
    The Globe is NOT a newspaper, any longer, any more than the Star is a newspaper. And if conservatives ran a newspaper, it would NOT be a newspaper either. Just a propaganda outlet. The fact that the propaganda is usually not overt, makes no difference whatsoever.
    So it’s a mindset, not an ideology which causes this problem.

    “breathed life into the Parti Quebecois”
    I have a lot of respect for HM PM Harpers ability
    But I really don’t believe even he could breath any life into that particular corpse. It’s so over, so Trudeau era it comes with a disco ball, platform shoes and bell bottoms.
    Cheers Bubba

    What a frickin’ joke!

    Sounds like someone (Seguin) longing for the “good old days” when french speaking Quebecers were gonna destroy the country, unless the rest of the country payed up and started imposing french upon themselves, the costs be damned. As for the Glob@Plop, it’s business as usual, a little “culture war” a little unfounded accusations and assertions and welcome back Trudopia.

    The Parti Quebecois and Pauline Marois are so desperate I am awaiting their attack on Newt Gringrich.

    Has Seguin been under a rock for the last five years?
    When the money finally runs out is the day socialists start figuring out why their way doesn’t work.
    The Chretien political subsidy to parties did more to feed separtists, the reason closet separatists like Seguin never said so was because you never bite the liberal hand that feeds you.

  7. Liz J Says:

    Wonder how the NDPQ leadership convention choice will affect the Separatist’s chances or excuses to make a rebound? The Dippers will have to play to whatever made their popularity sore in Quebec. Maybe we’ll get some idea of just exactly what Jack Layton promised them, if anything beyond seats with power in an ASSUMED coalition.
