Quote - Maxime Bernier

"The federal government today intervenes massively in provincial jurisdictions, and in particular in health and education, two areas where it has no constitutional legitimacy whatsoever. This is not what the Fathers of Confederation had intended."

Maxime Bernier is no Ron Paul, but the language of this statement certainly demonstrates he is paying attention to the political scene south of the border.

I've honestly not read the entire constitution act of 1867. Its on my list.

BTW, i didn't say he was right, i was just commenting on the similarity of the quote compared with the rhetoric used in the US.

What common good is and which parts of it are provided for by government is Congress' choice.
