That's an 18% gratuity tacked on now, buddy boy...

"The Parti Quebecois (PQ) complains that Quebec does not make enough from rich reserves of iron, zinc, nickel, copper and gold and wants to force mining firms to pay higher royalties. It also plans to make it harder for foreign firms to take over Quebec companies.
It will strengthen already tough language laws to ensure French dominates, and promises a third referendum on splitting off from Canada when the time is right.
"

Good luck with that profitability thing

The last time separatism was big here I was a kid. In my young mind I didn't understand what people meant by "separate". I looked at a map and thought that people will dynamite the province away from the rest of Canada...

On the one hand I'm rather annoyed at how the media is freaking out and making this out to be a bigger deal than it really is. On the other hand I'm rather pleased that this means we can still make the rest of Canada shiat itself in panic, although I'm not sure why they want us to stick around since they have nothing better to do the rest of the time than biatch and whine about us.

You and me both


On my earlier comment. If the PQ wants businesses to embrace the French language in Quebec, then incentives (tax breaks, etc) on hiring francophones would do more to both invite business and get French used than banning English would

The amusing thing this time around is that the prime minister of the country is not from Quebec, and in fact is extremely unpopular here (as in, "I wouldn't give the motherfarker a glass of water if he were on fire"), as is the rest of his party. So in the event of a referendum the RoC can put on a big show of so-called "love", but I think it's much less likely to "stick" this time around.

As an Algonquin, I'm amused at the bruhaha over the border.
Now, if they want my money they can ask for it politely.
I speak English as my first foreign language and French as my third.
I prefer to begin conversations in Quebec in a native tongue, just to get theirs wagging.
Then I remind them who is spending their money.

Good. Split. Leave. Then slowly sink into poverty as your mineral resources are exploited to exhaustion, leaving Quebec with nothing more than an over-inflated sense of self-worth.

Is there something inherent in the French language that makes native speakers insist on preeminence regardless of their fundamental irrelevance?

They do not own the land thus they can not separate as per vudukungfu and company

Our impression is that the separatists are like a kid running away from home. Most of it is just attention-whoring. Especially in the West, we see them (rightly or wrongly) as entitled whiners who get the lion's share of attention and funding from Ottawa, yet are never bloody satisfied. Add to that the fact they can't win a referendum without cheating, and even if they did manage to be their own country they think they can still benefit from Confederation without shouldering their share of the debt, and you get a topic that the rest of us are sick and tired of hearing about. Even the Franco-Ontariens and Acadiens can't stand the Quebecois (according to the two or three people I've talked to).

Yes, Quebec is so brutally oppressed, with your* dumptrucks of federal cash and your draconian language laws and your absolute intolerance of non-francophones.

Finally, a lot of us Anglos think Canada is a pretty neat country, and I guess some of us get a little miffed that anyone would want to leave it.

Would they use the CAD$ or the € or a new "Quebec franc" or what?
 
2012-08-28 01:53:30 PM
As a former Quebec resident and a fluent Acadian francophone, I say good riddance.

The victim culture in Quebec is like nothing I've ever seen.

There is nothing in the world that a hard-lined quebecer likes better than to blame someone else for their woes.

If they actually separate, and force all the anglos out, then they'll have no one left to blame. Only once this happens might they actually develop a culture worth saving.

madcan34: Why doesn't the rest of the country have a vote to see if they can stay?


Because it is none of their farking business.

As a québécois, I hope the referendum will succeed and we will become a sovereign and prosperous nation, while all the foreigners and the rest of Canada can go suck cock.

I don't understand the opposition to separation. The RoC obviously likes Stephen Harper's authoritarian right-wing ways, we clearly don't. Us leaving would leave the path for the RoC to accomplish its goal of becoming as retarded as the USA, while we do our own thing.

Probably, but if it means the Cup comes back to Canada even for one year I think I'd be alright with it.

Them Quebecois are a proud folk. Very family oriented. They often post their family name on signs on their front lawn.

Just the other day I drove through the West Island of Montreal.

Seems like every other house had a sign that said A VENDRE

That's one big family!
