While many francophones can embrace the concept of a franco/Anglo partnership that forms a strong bi cultural Canada from your posts you dont seem to represent that concept,You've made it abundantly clear that you dont like Canada or its Anglo majority and are just in the game to suck Canada dry before separating.Sorry PB but as far as the concept of being fellow Canadians we aint partners dude.

It's not up to you. In Quebec we have voted to be part of Canada so we are partners. Notice that you live in Quebec and we are a Canadian province. As much as you may want those dreams of a separate Quebec to come true, they aren't anytime soon.

Unlike other PQ leaders who have traditionally been socialist, he is the first to shift the party to a more business-oriented platform.

Peladeau has also affirmed that Canada's bilingual-bicultural model is a myth that exists only in imagination. "So, if there's an imaginary country, it's the one that the premier had so much hoped for and we know that it is an optical illusion...it's the famous co-operative federalism,".

Is this man who will achieve Quebec's independence?
I wouldn't be surprised if Quebec pulls it off this time around. I just hope we handle this like mature adults. Good luck to Quebec in making the decision that is best for them.

Theres no doubt PKP is a very rich and charismatic character who makes no bones about what his objectives are.Can he pull it off? he has much support and conveniently owns the lionshare of Quebecs media. IMO if any one can lead Quebec to nationhood PKP has all the tools needed ,now can he convince the voters.

My take on PKP is all the best to him. I don't see the breakup of Canada being the best course of action for Quebec at the moment so as it stands I do not support him. As for English in Quebec I am comfortable with the current level of English in Quebec. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect the working language of 90% to be the lingua franca in Quebec. Most anglos I know are equally content with their treatment in Quebec.

These Anglos you know must be in the final stages of assimilation into the francophone culture as all the Anglophones i know are in no way content with the linguistic rules and regulations they are expected to abide by here in Quebec.

Most of the Anglos i socialize with couldnt care less what Quebec does in the future ,they are fed up with Quebec and are unanimous on their wish to leave Quebec but for now are tied down by job/financial or family issues.
My own reasons for advocating Quebec separation is coming from a logical perspective,Quebec has made itself into its own distinct country within Canada over the last 60 years, A franco demographic that for the most part doesnt identify as Canadian except for the financial stability Canada brings, For them Canada is just a safety net .
The logical course of action IMO is to now give birth to this new country instead of remaining a subservient minority to the mother country Canada and being subjected to the whims, vagaries, rules and regulations of what in essence is a foreign country. The door is open,walk through it.
