Actually, to many English Canadians, Quebecers are right-wing on religious issues.

To most Canadians English or otherwise Quebecers are predominantly Catholic, if English Canadians view this as rightwing does this mean French Quebecers view their stance on religious issues as left wing?

Most Quebecers are agnostic. There are Catholic traditions, but few attend church regularly.

Here i did it for you=
Pierre Karl Péladeau - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He is one powerful guy. The question is, will he be able to guide the people of Quebec to the big show? I think he has more in him than the previous lot. Except Rene Levesque he was the man. Parizeau was a fool.

I agree. I think this is a facade that convinces guys like PBeauchamp that staying in Canada is a good idea. They make it look like they are giving us something. In reality they are not giving us it. It is like one of those magicians tricks it is only a matter of finding out the secret.

I agree with you - you really need to do something about the Pbeau's in Quebec... Any suggestions? there's still a lot of them there.. Can the R.O.C help in any way?

Seems like Canadian government will keep Quebec on Status Quo forever, if Quebec wants any changes it will have to make them as the Canadian government just doesnt seem to care.
Only thing i can see the ROC doing is encourage Quebec to seek its own destiny and for those of us who live here in Quebec vote for separation when given the opportunity to vote.

What does right-wing mean in this context? Do you mean that English Canadians perceive francophone Quebecers as being Catholic and therefore right-wing, or that Quebecers' typical opposition to giving religion a large place in the public sphere is considered right-wing, since English Canadian left-wingers typically strongly value displays of religiosity (especially from ethnic minorities)?

As they say, the ball is in Québec's court. I strongly disagree with the line of thought that Canada needs to do something more for Québec.
