Prime Minister Stephen Harper dropped a political bombshell November 22nd, introducing a motion in the Commons recognizing that Quebecers form a nation within Canada. The surprise move came in response to a Bloc Quebecois motion calling for Quebecers to be recognized as a nation -- but not within Canada. Harper said his motion recognized Quebec's history, without allowing for separation. (Liberal leader Bill Graham spoke in support of the government motion and said the Bloc Quebecois was blind to the greatness available for Quebecers within Canada.)
