Merci, Charles

Those who remember Charles de Gaulle's
1967 announcement of "Vive Le Quebec Libre!" at Montreal's City Hall
may be dismayed to learn that it is a T-shirt slogan now.

At Bang On, a hip clothing and accessories store in Burnaby's Metrotown Mall, I spotted a T-shirt graphic of le grand Charles, with arms upraised. It includes the slogan Vive Le Quebec Libre!

The evil that men do lives after them...on the fronts of T-shirts anyways. I am sure that it will sell well to the thousands of local teenagers who happen to be Quebec nationalists. :)
