You Can't Have it Both Ways, Part II

(Part I is here.
Somehow I suspect this will turn into a lengthy series.)

News report (scroll down for this bit):

In a visit to Gatineau, Que., Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe complained the Quebec side of the National Capital Region doesn't get its share of the jobs.

"Same thing with research centres. There's 31 in the federal capital area and only one on this side of the river," he said.

Gee I wonder WHY the government jobs are kept in a province that hasn't been in an uproar for forty years about seceding from Canada and forming its own country.

Could be just a sensible decision to avoid MOVING COSTS down the road? Not to mention a question of loyalty and lots of other questions that would probably come to mind if I thought about it some more?

And furthermore, WHY would an independent Quebec (the country!) want Canadian government jobs in the first place!

Mixed messages, anybody?
