What if Oliver Stone made a movie about Legault?


As you know, American director Oliver Stone will be attending the Quebec City Film Festival this week.

Known for his political films (jfk, w, Nixon), Oliver Stone is a fan of conspiracy theories.

Friend of Vladimir Putin and admirer of Hugo Chavez, a socialist so inept as to bankrupt Venezuela (the country with the largest oil reserves in the world), director of cult films Platoon And Wall Street he has a penchant for conspiracies of all kinds and likes to believe that reality is never what it seems.

I imagine him making a film about François Legault …


Scene 1.

The scene takes place a few days after the CAQ elections in 2018.

In a dark office, two shadows talk to each other. They are François Legault and Simon Jolin-Barrette.

“Mr. Prime Minister, your strategy worked! You managed to make everyone believe you were a federalist!

“The Liberals voted for us too, can you believe it?” “

Both men laugh.

“Now that you are elected, Prime Minister, you must take advantage of your majority to open the doors! What are we doing ? We unilaterally declare independence, are we preparing for a third referendum?

“Woah, Woah, Simon, calm down… No, I have a better plan. A Machiavellian plan, which will put people on our side and allow us to do what Bourassa did not dare to do …

– What ?

“We’ll take it easy …

“But … why, Mr. Legalault?” You have free rein, the opposition is disorganized, people love you! On the contrary, you have to work twice as much, hit the accelerator!

– No, no, you are too young, Simon, too impulsive … You will invent two laws for us, one on language and one on secularism.

– OK …

“But make sure they are timid laws, not too harsh. For example, for secularism, he proposes a law that goes less than the Drainville Charter of Values.

– That is ?

“Did the PQ want all civil servants to remove their religious sign?” Let’s say our own law will only apply to officials in positions of authority. And add a grandfather clause …

– OK.

– And for the language, he reassures the British by saying that we will not apply law 101 to cegeps.

– But you see, Mr. Legalault, it makes no sense! This is…

“Tssssssssss, Simone! Do what I tell you …

“But what’s the plan?”

– You’ll see, even if our laws don’t go very far, Canadians will fall apart. They will tear their shirts, insult us, threaten to fight our laws in court.

– Yes is… ?

– And there we can say to the Quebeckers: “Look, even with hyperthymide laws, there is nothing to be done, Canada does not want to know anything! There is only one way: separation!

Simon Jolin-Barrette’s face lights up.

“But … But that’s fantastic, Mr. Prime Minister!”

– Isn’t that it? Serve me a gin and tonic … “
