Hold your heads up

There's a lot of doom and gloom amongst my northern friends, with the decision by Belinda Stronach to cross the aisle and join the Libranos... and their subsequent failure to defeat the Librano government's budget.
Don't let it get you down.
Just keep some things in mind...
Quebec's election is two years away. If, by some miracle, the Martins hang on that long, or somehow manage to form another minority government in the meantime, the Quebecers will certainly be looking to punish someone... that being M. Charest, the current premier, who is... a Librano! Can you say Parti Quebecois sweep? Can you say separation vote a few months later? Can you say blame the Libranos when the separatists win? Gosh, Ontario will have such a cow.
"How did this happen?" the sheep will bleat.
"You caused it," the voices will call out. "You backed a cadre of crooks masquerading as a government."
They won't be too shaken if separatist parties make inroads out west. But Quebec? Merci.
Just remind every Librano sympathizer that you encounter that continuing the Martinite (reminds of kryptonite, doesn't it) regime increases the chances of disunity. Remind 'em every single day.
