Editorial: PQ picks a suspicious time to raise royal objection
Whatever else the PQ administration might feel about the monarchy, it comes off as unseemly and churlish for a province with a female premier and a Catholic heritage to oppose this change.
In the parliamentary vote, even the Bloc Québécois backed the legislation. That was back in March, and it is curious that the Quebec government uttered not a peep of protest at the time, but chose the day of the royal birth to voice an objection.
The likely explanation would seem to be that it could not resist injecting a sour note into an otherwise joyous royal occasion.
