The Bloc's Blackmail

Gilles Duceppe, leader of the Bloc Quebecois has stated his price for support of the budget that federal government is to present in March. He wants $5 billion.  It's nothing more that blackmail IMHO. 
QUEBEC — The Bloc Quebecois, with 47 seats in the House of Commons, has announced its price for supporting the Conservative minority government's new budget: The BQ wants $5 billion for Quebec, including $2.2 billion to compensate the province for harmonizing its provincial sales tax with the federal goods and services tax.
I say NO. They have extorted enough from the ROC already.  They are the spoiled child of confederation and it's about time the pandering stop.  If the government gives in and gives them this money, it still won't be enough.   It's never enough. The hands will still be out.  Besides the Conservatives would lose support in the ROC especially in the west here.

It's time to impose some tough love. Don't cave and let the chips fall where they may.  If the CPC loses seats in Quebec so be it.  They'll gain else where. If they comply with Gilles demands, they will lose seats in ROC.

Please PM Harper, Minister Flaherty, Minister of State for Finance, Ted Menzies, SAY NO!  Don't give in to the Bloc's demands! Enough is enough!
Makes you wonder what the Bloc's coalition partners have promised them.
