“Mutantism on the March” Chapter 88 “The Toronto Insult”

Closing time at Farwin’s on Stanley Street in Montreal drove the gang to Jillie’s a lesbian bar up the street but the straight gang tired quickly of the novelty and headed for some Metaxa brandy and Greek coffee at Squid’s mountain retreat in his hollowed home in Mount Royal. The party broke up in the early morning hours with Montenez spending the night in the guest suite. After a refreshing repose Montenez and Squid shared an exquisite breakfast of sausages, eggs, milk and griddle cakes. Montenez remarked that the hijacking incident had made a deep impression on him and he would like to stay awhile in Montreal to see if he could help the population of the province. After Squid had a long talk with him over the dangers of nationalism Montenez was resolved to create some political grouping to monitor the utterances of nationalist leaders. Montenez’s only experience with nationalism had been in Romania where communist charlatans had ruled the country through clever manipulation of nationalism. He saw no reason why the same type of nationalism could not thrive in Quebec. The conditions for its flourishing were growing.

The new organization contemplated by Montenez would attempt to fight destructive nationalism and its big swindle and it was to called Quebecois Contre Déception (CDQ). It would establish its own media centre and warn the street of the scalping antics of nationalists. Nationalism could be beneficial to a degree when it cleaned the parasitical filth from the nation but when it extended its boundaries it could lead to a new class of internal bloodsuckers. The Russian experience, amongst many others, served as a prime example.

The hijacking antics experienced by Montenez soon became known as the “Toronto Insult” and it inflamed the population of Quebec. Several homes in the Montreal Anglo enclave of Westmount were vandalized. Thousands boycotted Ontario controlled businesses doing business in Quebec. Police forces stood by doing nothing. When residents of Ontario were threatened and property belonging to them was destroyed such as automobiles bearing Ontario license plates the federal government led by Liberal Pester Mommyboy threatened dire reaction such as sending the Canadian army in to “restore peace and order”. He swore that the hijackers would receive swift justice and so far that was not encouraging as after a ten minute hearing they received suspended sentences for “disturbing the peace”. Mommyboy promised Quebecers this wasn’t enough and promised the hijacking decision would be sent to a higher court for appeal assuming of course the hijackers could be located. But they were so busy campaigning on behalf of The Conservative Party they couldn’t be found. The head of The Conservative Party, Johnny Difenfarter, praised the hijackers as national heroes. The premier of the province of Quebec Robert Poorassa getting caught up in the political turmoil suffered a heart attack while touring a hydro electric plant in Northern Quebec. Jiber, aka René Hecklevesque, was propelled forward by the political hotplate. His credibility skyrocketed with his vague nationalistic statements. Hostile encirclement by Canada was an undeniable fact. He cast himself in the role of a great saviour who would defend the virginity of the Province of Quebec harping on the injured feelings of the crowd. At one of his numerous public appearances, he summed up his theories and made it quite clear to the CDQ and mutants how lethal he could be if unchecked. He said, “We must fight to the death all those who are fighting to eradicate the Quebec nation. We face a strong and hostile federal government that is ready to oppress our sacred nation and they are bolstered by Quebec fifth columnists in their ranks fearful of losing their Parliamentarian pensions. We must labour to clear these fleas from our body politic. They should have no say in the matters that concern the province of Quebec. Those who must be listened to in this conflict are strong, native and honest Quebecers like myself. We can only build a free and independent Quebec with our own sweat and blood. This means my friends we must do it without the fetters that Canada imposes upon us and dominates our culture and economic development. I stress culture for without our own spirit we will never be free and this is one of the first steps required to cleanse and build. Let not foreigners and their alien culture dominate us. They are job stealing backstabbers full of Anglos. Beware of the enemy within.”
