Let them in Cake in Montreal

April 24, 2012 at 9:45 pm (Uncategorized)

There’s a moment in Dr. Zhivago where a large workers demonstration is passing a venue where the wealthy are eating. Their songs are overheard by the revellers within: “Maybe after the revolution, they will be better singers” quips the speaker.

Jean Charest’s comments on Friday had that feeling. As crowds demonstrated against Charest’s polices, he joked, “We could offer them a job … in the North, as far (north) as possible. ” The audience laughed.

Oh very droll. Very witty. Let them eat cake didn’t go over too well last time either.
