A lesson in etymology for Jean Charest

Democracy: from the Greek: δημοκρατία (dēmokratía) “rule of the people”,[1] which was coined from δῆμος (dêmos) “people” and κράτος (kratos) “power”, circa 400 BC.

So Mr. Charest, I’d like to point out that when you try to demonize the people by calling them “la rue“, you are basically alienating, if not insulting, the very people who are in charge of electing you. Not entirely sure how you thought this might be a good idea…
