This is the reason why they think that Q mistreats Anglos and therefore they want Q to get out of C.


"Jambo's opinion is much more representative because he lives on the West Island and the West Island has the highest concentration of contacts with Anglo-Canada, so he knows what Anglo-Canadians think of Q"


As long as these Anglos are in Q, of course they want Canada to be united for exactly the same reasons as you listed, but they do not want it to be united for the sake of loving Canada's bilingual culture, but for their very own selfish reasons...They want C to be united, as you said, because they want to continue to have ther special exclusive Anglos rights protected by Ottawa - because they have no intention to ever truly live in a real French environment which compromises the actual idea of unity.
For them Canadian unity simply is = living as anglo in Q as in Ontario.

That doesn't change the fact that they dislike Q and once they leave Q, they also want to kick out Q out of C just like the ROC also wants.


+ Jambo is not unique in this. Whenever I read the comment section of the Anglo press, 80% are negative atittudes towards Québec and support throwing them out of Canada. What Jambo writes is representative for all of Anglo-Canada.





They don't like Q but unlike the ROC they do not want to throw Québec out because it will have negative implications for them, such as the possibility of moving the capital to another city in Central ROC which would turn Ottawa into an irrelevant city. Ottawa anglos only support the idea of Canadian unity, so that they can feel as the role model centre of Canada...




how many wifes do you have?







Ottawa-Gatineau is BY FAR and by a large margin the MOST PRO-CANADIAN UNITY region in all of Canada and the only one!

Here you have a scientific source from Univeristé Montréal:


https://pum.umontreal.ca/apqc/95_96/...y/drouilly.htm


NO WHERE ELSE IN QUÉBEC DID FRANCOPHONES VOTE MORE AGAINST INDEPENDENCE THAN IN THE GATINEAU REGION (OUTAOUAIS)! A Gatineau francophone is even TWICE as likely to be in against independence than a Montréal francophone!!!!

Gatineau is BY far the most pro-Canadian city! And all people from there have a high probability to support Canadian unity just like you! But it is very different from the rest of Q! As you can see, Gatineau is the only region in all of Q where only a minority of francophones supports Québec independence!

Without Gatineau, Québec would have become independent!

Gatineau betrayed and destroyed all of Québec dreams..

Please tell me something I don't know already.


One thing to keep in mind about Gatineau is that the francophone population is about 25% comprised of francophones from outside Quebec (mostly Franco-Ontarians, but also a decent number of Acadians). These people generally do not have the same socio-political upbringing as Québécois and they often pass this mindset on to their kids. (Though of course I do know Franco-Ontarians, Acadians and people from other provinces who live in Gatineau and who support the PQ/BQ and independence. My former MP Richard Nadeau was a Franco-Ontarian from Hawkesbury who represented the Bloc Québécois.)


So while these people on the surface in everyday life are basically indistinguishable from Québécois, live their lives in French and have names like Mylène Gagnon and François Tremblay, in the ballot box their behaviour can be quite different.

Are you Selena? Did you clean the floor correctly?

These Franco-Ontarians should form their own province, they would still have more inhabitants than some of the smallest provinces. Considering that West Virginia segregated form Virginia, it is time for Outouais to separate from Québec because as you wrote, your socio-political mindset is too different for the real Québec... So please make your own province
and I don't say that you should fusion with Ottawa - just make Ouatouais an own province and don't bother with Ottawa.

There is no real appetite for making the Outaouais its own province or even for creating a federal district with Ottawa.


Quebec is big and as such has regional diversity within it.


The Outaouais is definitely Québécois in its own way just like the Beauce is Québécois in its own independent-minded entrepreneurial way, and other regions are as well.


If you spent time with my kids and their friends you certainly wouldn't come away with the idea that the Outaouais is not Québécois.

Well, I asked you last year, whether I can come to you and use your swimming pool but you didn't say yes...... which is unforgiveable because when QO asks you for a favor it is your moral duty to reply with yes... which makes me think that you have something to hide, like a dirty swimming pool or that you are a Hollywood All-American dynasty.

I would have thought that such an eminent personnage as yourself would already have your own swimming pool, behind your datcha!

It's дача (dacha) in Russian.

OK, I guess I transliterated into French.


"Dacha" in French sounds exactly the same as "dasha"


In order to get the "ch" sound in French you need to add the T.

Where I grew up in Montréal, I did neither have a swimming pool nor a garden...
...a few kids on the outskirts had a pool, so I made friends with them and ditched the ones with the same fate as mine... All I saw were buldings and the birds high above in the sky were airplanes, diminishing in size after a while just like our hopes diminish.

There were shops that sold flowers and I wondered, where do these flowers come from?
The florist told me the flowers come from a place called "nature" ...I asked her which metro station I had to take to get to this place. She said "Better try to go to the zoo".
And when I was in the zoo, all these animals were imprisoned...and they reminded me of how us city-dwellers are also caged up
If your swimming pool will ever be empty, I'll fill it up with tears of tar...
