Campaign Diary, Day 12.8: L'Ontario aux Québécois

A friend passed on a link to the Bloc Québécois de l'Ontario, who propose to annex Ontario to Quebec and then separate:
Ontario must undergo radical changes to become part of Québec. We are all aware of Ontario's current cultural deficiencies: puritcanical tendencies, a common law tradition, support for Confederation, etc.
A Bloc québécois government in Ontario will promote the following policies:
-- Lowering the legal drinking age to 18.
-- Lower the de facto drinking age to 14.
-- Implement a Civil Code of Québec (Ontario).
-- Introduce land use planning reform to limit the density of establishments serving primarily donoughts as its principal activity.
-- Reduce spending on roads.
-- Eliminate excessive regulation on minimum apparel requirements in drinking establishments.
-- Reduce university tuition rates to the national average, and once the national average has been readjusted to reflect this, reduce tuition rates to the national average.
It's a spoof, of course, but I'm tempted...
