(Dis-)Honour the Queen!
Diamond Jubilee medals are out, so naturally some have to make a stink:
Some Quebec MPs are returning their Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medals in protest of the federal government’s spending on monarchy celebrations.
At least six Quebec MPs — all four Bloc Quebecois members, along with two New Democrats — are reportedly refusing to accept the jubilee medals going to all 308 members of the House of Commons.
I get that the Bloc MPs would say no — although apparently Lucien Bouchard accepted a Golden Jubilee medal in 2002, so who knows? — but the two NDP MPs surprised me.
Seriously, guys? Maybe the rumours are right, and you ARE crypto-separatists?
