Canadian Dissolution?

According to Captain Ed (see link above), our neighbors to the north are having some problems on their side of the border. Anyone who has been following the Adscam scandal should know about this (if you don't know, you'd do well to read the litany of posts concerning this over at Captain's Quarters).

Apparently, though, the scandal has represented the possibility that Quebec would separate from Canada in a strong way. Interesting. I'm not sure how much such an event would destabilize Canada, but Ed is right in saying that it will be bad news if Canada does become unstable. We have a long, unmilitarized border with them. Unstable Canada = Bad.

Edit - Apparently I don't know how this "Trackback" thing works. The link is fixed.
