So, some people I know are prejudice against people from Quebec, who vacation in South Florida and can't drive. I just wonder, are any of the Canadians here from there? (I never paid attention) If so, or not, do you like them? Is it general knowledge that there is something wrong with them? I know they are mostly the French speaking ones.

Quebecois.

I've been to Florida, from what I observed, no one there can drive.

Google Rene Levesque, FLQ and come to your own bloody conclusions. I know I get damn well sick of hearing about them bitch about how the French Culture is under attack, when that is a fucking huge load of schlock...considering there is massive pockets of french speaking people in NS,NB, PEI, and Ontario.

Its the constant "we are gonna leave you guys" threat and its getting old. If I had my way the bloc and other seperatist partys would be barred from the hill but I guess that goes against rule of law and politics.

Plus some French are still bitter some jackass wasnt guarding the goat path and all of New France got routed by the British. And some are still bitter over some little "deportation" incident way back when.

I've yet to meet any Quebecois who are really all that different from any other Canadians, or anyone from anywhere else, for that matter.

My astrophysics prof was Quebecois; he was pretty cool.

But there's something kind of...off with all of them. And separatism really bugs me. An independent nation for extra special Canadians...that Canada pays for. I hope that if they do split off, we get to ditch those annoying bilingual laws. Always looking for instructions on food packages and getting the French side, seeing annoying double road signs, and having to learn French in school for nine years. It would make more sense to teach Chinese than French in some parts of Canada.

That would be the French's doing. If it were the English It would never have been named Quebec. I think it would have probably been named Cape Diamond & if the English named it the people would probably sound all Disney like "Cape Daimondneer's". What do you think 'eh?

Yea, people pretty much don't deserve to make their own nations and lead themselves... sorta like Southerners after the American Civil War. God knows that its better just to ram different groups together and paint lines on the map like Europeans did to the Middle East and reap the rewards of it later on!

You gave us the habs, poutine and St.Catherines Street , Montreal. If Quebec seperates Montreal is going to stay in Canada.

There's already a distinct French nation, it's called France, if the separatists want to hop a plane and move there I support them wholeheartedly.

The Nordiques Jersey's were pretty sick. Montreal was fun to visit. One of my friends lives a street over from St. Catherines while he attends McGill. It was really cool to be out at one in the morning, and to have Price Arthur Quest be flooded with people still.

So yeah.. you Quebecians, keep up the good work.

That's like saying Americans = English.

Seriously, why do only English speakers have the right of self-determination but French speakers don't?

Fuck they have been given the bloody chance to be there own country 5 fucking times now. Each result...they stay in Canada. It gets old and boring considering most people in Quebec vote PQ/Bloc whatever because they want to use the party as a Quebec Special interest group and have no desires to seperate from Canada.

Then again im sure we could just invade and take it all over again.

I don't see anything wrong with self-replicating referendums, actually. If this generation doesn't want to be independent, maybe the next one will, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Nationalism is stupid, but Canadian nationalism is not any less stupid than QuÚbÚcois nationalism.
