Oh, Nicholas. Don't be so ridiculous !

RIMOUSKI — Parti Québécois Leader Pierre Karl Péladeau says an independent Quebec would seek to recover its share of federal assets such as CF-18 fighter-bombers.
Péladeau suggested Tuesday that Quebec would also want its share of other assets such asCanada Post outlets, Canadian Coast Guard ships and other federal infrastructure including bridges.
The PQ leader added that an independent Quebec would also assume its portion of the Canadian debt.
His comments came as the PQ caucus gathers for a two-day conference in Rimouski to plan for the resumption of activities at the provincial legislature in mid-September.
The PQ leader was continuing on a theme put forth by Bloc Québécois Leader Gilles Duceppe, who he recently campaigned with.
Péladeau said much of the federal infrastructure was funded by contributions by Quebecers over the course of many years.
"So, yes, these are contributions that were made by Quebecers throughout the federation in the hundreds of billions of dollars, so it belongs to us," Péladeau said Tuesday.
