Charest to Harper: We're Done

The level of animosity between the two has reached a new high

Toronto Star national affairs columnist Chantal Hébert charts out the political fallout of Quebec Premier Jean Charest’s quick change from diehard federalist to Bourassa quasi-nationalist, and how this transformation has
helped him at home but hurt him in Ottawa.”To make a long story short, the level of animosity between the two governments has reached a new high,” Hébert writes. “Bad blood had been accumulating between Charest and Harper for a while and it was probably inevitable that some would spill out in public.” Though left unmentioned in the column, Charest’s gambit might yet pay off should the federal Liberals, lead by Michael “Quebec Nation” Ignatieff return to power.
