I don't trust any of those Quebec parties. Those people are all separatists more or less. The Quebec Liberals are a misnomer because they still are an anti-Canadian party that fights for disunity and chaos in Canada. The Liberal Quebec makes a mockery of the Canadian charter of human rights and freedoms. Those who are not ethnically pure laine are not represented by any major political party in Quebec.

If Quebec independence is a legitimate cause, then so would Western Canadian independence be to me.

Perhaps the PLQ of today is not as active in their anti-Canadianness as previous PLQ governments may have been. Nevertheless the Canada of today is one of the most decentralized federal countries (US, Germany, Russia, China being a lot more centralized, not sure about how centralized or not India is) and in most cases the visible face of government, in the day-to-day life of a "normal" citizen, is the provincial government more so than the Feds.

That said, I'm not sure where in anglo-Canada do provincial government seem to take up more media space than federal government, knowing that it is not the case in Ontario, where even in Toronto, which is the provincial capital of all cities, the Feds take up a lot more media space than the provincial government despite Queen's Park still having a greater day-to-day impact on the population than the Feds. (Ottawa, however, has an excuse) In Quebec the media focuses on the provincial government a lot more except maybe in Gatineau (if so was the case it would be for the same reason as the Ontario side of the Ottawa region)

Yet the PLQ holds the majority of non-pure-laine voters, even if all major parties have a share of non-pure-laine people. And it was historically such a large majority that previous PLQ governments took the non-pure-laine for granted, even though they don't seem to do so as much anymore.

Never mind that our first Black governor general was Québecoise, and the second Black person to sit in the Académie Française was a Black writer from Quebec as well.

I mean there's plenty of racism in Québec..but there isn't any more there than in the rest of Canada.

Funny that probably 95% of the discussions I have had in the past 10 years where the expression "pure laine" was used have been in English on online forums such as this one.

.
Even in Gatineau, if I think of my Facebook and the issues people tend to discuss, the majority of them are provincial Quebec issues: schools, health care, Rona bought by Lowe's, Péladeau and tax shelters, Guy Turcotte's trial(s), teenage runaways from youth homes and pimps, funding for daycare centres, etc.
