Prince Philip quote[edit]

Perhaps the anon can take time out of removing maintenance tags to explain here why it's worthwhile and encyclopaedic to have in the article a quote with absolutely zero context. Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information and quotes should not be used in place of the more neutral, dispassionate tone preferred for encyclopedias, as doing otherwise can be a backdoor method of inserting a non-neutral treatment of a subject into Wikipedia's narrative. --Ħ MIESIANIACAL 15:43, 10 April 2014 (UTC)

Don't lecture me. The quote is both notable and pertinent to this article. Sorry if you don't like it. (talk) 18:08, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm afraid you'll have to do better than that. Try addressing the issues, for a start, rather than throwing out red herrings. Why do you insist on the article containing a quote completely out of context; why this when it's contrary to Wikipedia guidelines? --Ħ MIESIANIACAL 18:26, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
I am here from WP:3O. I have to say that I agree with Miesianiacal. According to WP:Quote "A quotation that does not directly relate to the topic of the article or directly support the information as it is presented should not be used, to avoid original research." I would say that this applies as the article is not directly about Prince Philips's opinion of Canada and there isn't even any information provided for it to support, but rather it is "used in place of the more neutral, dispassionate tone preferred for encyclopedias."
