A tweet I read

@RemiFrancoeur1: latest CROP-La Press poll released this week shows Quebec support for sovereignty on the rise with those for independence at 40%. #Qcpol


If they seceded, how would the maritimes be connected?
If they seceded, they would have a hell of a fight on their hands with Quebec's Aboriginal tribes and the Mohawk Warriors Society who are well armed and have absolutely no intention of leaving Canada. Remember the Oka Crisis? Just think how that would have ended without the Canadian Armed Forces showing up to keep the peace.

On another note, Quebec independence would be very short lived considering America would never stand to have a civil war occur on its border. It is highly likely the Americans would immediately occupy Quebec if they attempted to secede in the name of national security.

I don't even have to make this stuff up. See posts 97 and 98.

From my perspective and in my opinion everyone gets along just fine in Quebec the people are nice and Anglo and Franco get along well with each other,the problem comes in with the government and its ridiculous and unneeded language and secular legislation, basically laying out laws that have no point, as an example a recent banning of kids wearing turbans if they play soccer.

goofy legislation like this just serves to irritate people and makes the Quebec government look stupid..

Merci acajak..I'm a happy man. See? I still have optimism too, you know? I think I was in the pix in #2.....;-)....I heard the lilt of old French whispering from the stones and the air. I made alot of French 'friends' who walked that street and others back in the 17th and 18th!

and jambo...

Well I have to tell you I am a pretty interested football fan...Andl I think i'm rational too...;-)..... I don't throw bottles or coins or other stuff at guys when they score goals! What can you do about what the Quebec football organziers did? People don't think. One day perhaps a Sikh from Quebec will be up there in the top echelons of international football. When they do that bio, Quebec will be glad they retrieved there 'football' sense when it comes to the kids learning and playing the game.

I hope they will separate ... They don't deserve to be Canadian.
Canada will be better without Quebec. No more bilingualisme, No more cash for Quebec, No more French Canadian prime minister, No more separatist idiots, No more referendum...

A slight problem with this logic is that Québécois are basically the original Canadians.

They certainly threw that cultural heritage under the bus as Francophone Quebeckers these days dont like or identify with Canada and most Francophones arent that crazy about Anglos. While the likely hood of separation seems unlikely in the near future we cant forget a separatist government is the current ruling party of Quebec,their main objective is to separate Quebec from Canada.
Also i think the indigenous native Indians might have trumped the French as the rightful first inhabitants of this area of the world.
Some good reading on the chain of events.

No Quebec, no bilingualism!



I'm curious, are you an anglophone Canadian? Are you Canadian? I'm sure you aren't French. My curiosity is peaked by your poorly-written English.

Aliss if Quebec separated from Canada do you really think the ROC would continue to strive for some measure of bilingualism? what would be the point?
