As I explained on this forum a couple of years ago, the best route for the nation of Quebec is to stay part of Canada for the time being, whilst reaping the benefits Canada makes available for us. This is the way for Quebec until the the time to toss Canada arrives.

I am thrilled that this vision has come closer to light!

The CAQ advocates strengthening Quebec for the time being, without the need for immediate independence; however, the party refuses to identify as Canadian, but instead as the Quebecois nationality. Greater power is being demanded for Quebec (and rightfully so!).

The party leader's refusal to identify as a proud Canadian has led to a strong disdain from the anglo Quebecer community.

Personally, I think it is a step in the right direction. More power for Quebec, more autonomy for Quebec, and a focus on building our nation to be as strong as possible.

How is this viewed in Canada?

So when is this separation going to take place? the rest of Canada couldnt care less if Quebec separates as at the moment it contributes nothing to Canada and takes much basically a welfare bum.

Sorry, I may have missed something. Am I, as a western Canadian, supposed to care about Quebec?

P/B ….. where ya been keeping yourself? Hope wherever it was you were sequestered there voluntarily.

Your absence, along with the huge spoon you used to use with abandonment of anything akin to the normal considerations for social discourse to stir up acrimony was noted some time ago.

Your return to these boards signals the commencement of another round of entertaining to and fro's and should liven things up a tad.

My thoughts on the CAQ would probably be best summed up by merely verbally saying their acronym and having the expressed phonetics do the job for me.

Let the contests begin.

Jambo101, perhaps you forget that I am not a separatiste, but instead a proud Canadian federalist. It's unfortunate that I am forced to pledge my allegiance to Canada and prove I'm "one of the good ones".

I'm sorry Jambo, what is racist about the CAQ?

I would argue that the ROC is far more racist with the faux-outrage and constant categorization of people's ethnic groups followed by the obligatory feeling sorry for them.

One thinks of Justin Trudeau sporting his ridiculous Indian sherwani which achieved the dual outcomes of both offending the Indians and humiliating Canada (once again) on the world stage.

A now infamous meme of typical Canadian-style racist blundering.

Bill 21 = No religious symbols involved in the government.

How is that racist?

Bill 9 = Quebec needs less immigration.

Similarly, how is that "racist"?

You really are stretching, Jambo.

Also, I don't consider pointing out poor treatment of our First Nations people, or the lack of culture in Ontario to be "trashing" Canada. I do see that there is a deep-seated inferiority complex in anglo Canadian culture, as vividly displayed above, but that is hardly trashing Canada anymore than claiming that Americans have a superiority complex.

Ironically non-white newcomers in Quebec assimilate far better than in anglo Canada, where defacto self-segregation and identity politics tends to be the norm. This is because ethnicity in Quebecois culture is very much about the French language, while in anglo Canada ethnicity fixates on colour.

Yet when uncomfortable facts come to light, you resort to the claim that your adopted home, Quebec, is "racist".
