French President Knifes Sovereignists

Last summer President Sarkozy's gave a speech in Quebec city that seemed to support Canadian federalism. It was seen as a betrayal by most sovereignists , but was explained as being ambiguous by others.
In a speech in Paris, at a ceremony honouring Quebec Premier Jean Charest, he dispelled any illusions that Quebec sovereignists might have had.
In no uncertain terms he came out in support of a united Canada, so much so that according to LE DEVOIR, "it overshadowed the ceremony."
It seems that sovereignists will have another 'humiliation' to suffer and I'm sure we will soon see a vitriolic attack on the French president reminding him to mind his own business.
For anglophone Quebeckers, it will be delicious entertainment
