I don't think so. Very few Quebecois move to other provinces. What benefits would I get by moving to another province? Social programs in Quebec are typically more extensive. Plus, the "French-Canadian" people in places like ON or NB are not really separatist. So no I don't think that is accurate at all.

He works for the Federal Government, the hub of which is in Ottawa. I'm guessing that he wouldn't be this, ummm, passionate about his language rights if he wasn't originally from Quebec, though.

Francophone Canadians can be passionate about their language rights regardless of their province of origin. This is quite distinct from the question of separatism.

Nonsense.

Lower taxes. Job transfers. Not everyone thinks in terms of "social programs" when desiring to move.

You are free to think what you like but having been on the designated representative and recipient end of over two hundred such transfers to Ontario from Ville La Salle, Ajax and Quebec City, I can assure you that of the whole, a predominant number were die hard separatists.

You need to open your mind to the fact that some make a financial decision to move based upon pension accruements achieved through years of service, among a host of other considerations people are faced with if their jobs are changing. Some may even do so for reasons of the economic uncertainty separatist nonsense causes only to still believe firmly in the concept.

Being hypocritical is not solely confined to les autres.

A very good point.

I said nothing about separatism and was just guessing that he was originally from Quebec. Someone upthread mentioned him living in a different province, and I discovered that he works for the Feds so I was guessing that he moved. Nothing more, nothing less. I suppose that I could dig a bit deeper and see if he's originally from Quebec but, honestly, I couldn't care less.

The auto default to separatist was introduced by the poster Quebec is my Country and I and ran with it in my response without pausing to consider the point A/J subsequently made.

Some may say it is just a buckle - but Air Canada has been in business for a loooong time. They have a long established relationship with the major aircraft manufacturers and this established requirement is nothing new. They are highly representative of the global image of Canada and they should in every possible way, ensure that all communication, especially public facing and related to safety, should be in both official languages. If it takes another 21K dollars for them to get it - so be it!

Some one on the forum recommended recognizing first nation languages as official languages. I can see how that would go out here in Manitoba. Businesses would be getting sued left and right.

Though my point (and therefore yours) is still valid. Which is that francophone militancy in Canada is not limited to Quebec or even to people originally from Quebec. Though it does sometimes manifest itself differently due to variable political and demographic realities on the ground.
