Quebec politician Amir Khadir is not pleased the royal newlyweds will be visiting Montreal and Quebec City during their upcoming 9-day Canadian tour.I don't find myself often in agreement with Gerard Deltell, the leader of Quebec's little conservative/separatist party, the ADQ, but he's right when he says that regardless of your feelings towards the monarchy, it is tradition, you are in a country that is part of the monarchy, and those two haven't said anything bad about you, though in Khadir's case, maybe they should. Being against the monarchy is one thing; calling pretty folks "parasites" is another.
Khadir, who is a member of Quebec's national assembly (MNA) and co-leader of Quebec Solidaire, referred to the royals as "parasites" in an interview with the Journal de Québec newspaper.
"What a waste of public money. All this to welcome those parasites," Khadir is quoted as saying in the article.
But the fun with Amir Khadir doesn't stop there. Cue the blog No Dogs or Anglophones:

And on and on it goes. Where this guy ends up, nobody knows (though Fred Rose might).
