Craven short-sightedness alert. “Separatists in Quebec Seek Immigrant Votes,” from the New York Times:
To appeal to the growing Muslim vote, the Bloc has accepted an offer by Adil Charkaoui, a Moroccan-born man suspected of involvement in terrorist activities whom the government is trying to deport, to campaign for a local ethnic Armenian Bloc candidate who was born in Syria.
“It is a crucial vote,” the Bloc QuÃ©bÃ©cois leader, Gilles Duceppe, said of immigrants in an interview this week after making a campaign appearance with GÃ©rard Labelle, a Bloc candidate born in Mauritius. “It is important for the country that I want to build that these people consider themselves as full Quebecers.”
Here is an article touching on the allegations against Charkaoui.
