A Little Gallic Foot In Mouth

Something happens to Quebec politicians when they get to the old colonial homeland. They open their mouths and promptly stick their foot in it.

Charest said in a television interview in Paris on Friday that the province had the means to separate, but that it wasn't in Quebec's interests to do so.

Of course the shoe has been on the other foot when the Leader of Free France visited Quebec. It's the Gallic charm.

it is almost four decades since the late French president Charles de Gaulle gave courage to the separatists by uttering these four words at the (1967) St. Jean-Baptiste Day festival: "Vive le Quebec libre."
