The above title is for the CPC supporters who have been having the darndest of times trying to understand even the most basic facts involved in the census discussion.
For the rest of you, I present a quote from Reynold's exercise in stupidity from today's Globe:
"Le stat, to paraphrase Louis XIV, c’est moi."
First off, the horrible pun doesn't even make sense. Stats, er stat, is Louis XIV? I'm sure this had Reynolds chuckling to himself at his typewriter, but it's gibberish.
Nonetheless, there is some value in the quote. The irony is fantastic. Tell me, what reminds you more of Louis XIV: Collecting information about the population for the purposes of developing and running public programs and municipal planning, or the Prime Minister making a decision of national importance without consulting anyone, with no debate, on an issue outside his political mandate? L'etat, c'est lui.
