WAR: D'Oh Canada

Austin Bay (link via Instapundit) thinks Canada is a failed state that could collapse and splinter . . . I understand why Bay thinks Quebec could and probably should secede from Canada, and while it may or may not be true that the current scandals engulfing the ruling Liberal Party could provide an impetus for Quebec's separatists to gain power and demand secession, I don't really follow the logic of why this would result in Anglophone Canada crumbling into bits as a result. It's certainly true that the Canadian West is politically a poor fit with Ontario, but no moreso - and for many of the same reasons - than America's red and blue states are at odds. Thus, even if we do finally see Quebec go its own way, there's no reason why the rest of Canada shouldn't remain intact.
