"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.

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.

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.

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.

The idea of Quebec seceeding from Canada is particularly attractive to the US because once it occurs, Canada will break apart and guess who will be therre to pick up the pieces...you're too smart for me...right...Uncle Sam and we will have new states in the union and new sources of natural resources to plunder. It was believed that the parts of Canada would not be strong enough to make a go of it on their own and would go into negotiations with the US to unite with us. It might take a few years to happen but eventually it would. Just think of all the oil, iron, etc that would be available around our new northern border on the Arctic Circle. And we wouldn't have to fire a single shot to make it happen.
 
2012-08-28 02:11:03 PM
I bet Canada would be far better off without Quebec, assuming we drop the official bilingualism crap the moment Quebec separates (or the rest of Canada kicks them out). Having to produce bilingual packaging for the Canadian market is part of the reason why Canadian prices are higher than US prices for identical items. Not having to pay for French-speaking bureaucrats that serve a staggeringly small minority outside of Quebec, plus all the time producing all legislation, regulations, etc. in both languages.

Nobody has done a study to quantify this, because that might hurt Quebec's little feelings.
Plus we'd have to pay to write it in "Quebecois French" too.

Oh, and by the way, we'll redesign our currency immediately too, getting rid of the French, to discourage the Quebeggers from continuing to use the CANADIAN dollar.

The rest of Cananda no longer cares. Like the article says "there will be no repeat of the unity rally". The rest of Canada varies between wishing you would take your anchor on the economy, and begone, to just sighing at your obvious bluff.

2012-08-28 02:13:56 PM
These dipshiats make me ashamed to be 1/2 Quebecois.

What a bunch of self-deluded fools. You see, most separatists call for "sovereignty-association", in other words, independence from Ottawa but still keeping all the benefits of confederation. Problem: That's not up to them, it's up to us, and they're kidding themselves if they think they're going to be allowed to choose anyting other than "you're in or you're out".

What separatists don't realize is that public opinion would turn the tide very quickly into something like this:

-When they left they'd have to pay off their entire per-capita share of the national debt.
-A vote for separation would trigger massive federal granting of all pending Indian land claims prior to secession, cutting the size of Quebec by about 75%.
-All federal assets, including infrastructure, that aren't removed would have to be purchased by the province.
-Quebec would be left completely wihtout a military force of any kind, as all personnel and equipment would be removed.
-Quebec would have to join NAFTA or negotiate a separate trade deal with Canada, otherwise their status would be no different than, say, Botswana.
-Quebec would no longer be entitled to any current federal funding of any programs or projects.
-Any person who wished to retain Canadian citizenship would have the legal right to do so, creating a sub-community with divided loyalties within the province.
-Industries would be given huge tax and other incentives to relocate out of Quebec and remain in Canada proper.
-The federal government would freeze any Quebec assets under its control until all monies owed were paid in full.
-Quebec would not be able to use Canadian currency, throwing their financial markets into utter chaos.
-Their tax base of well under 10 million people is simply not big neough to sustain all the new responsibilities a "federal" Quebec government would suddenly have.

There are others, but perhaps the biggest consequence of separation would be this: Once Quebecers are flat broke, out of work, and desperately beginning to realize what a foolish decision they've made, they can't just reverse it. The shoe would be on the other foot, since it would be the rest of the country that's now voting on whether or not to even let them back in!

Quebeckers should ask the Southern U.S. states how they enjoyed Reconstruction and having the terms of re-admittance dictated to them.

The good news in all of this is that, regardless of media hype and separatist spin, there simply isn't anywhere near the popular vote support for a separation referendum to pass. They might be able to elect people, but with a multi-party system you only need about 35% of the popular vote to make it look like you ran away with the election. In a simple yes/no referendum It wouldn't even be close.

News flash to all the deluded separatists: It's not the 1980's anymore.

clevershark: Why do half the Canadians in Fark end up on my ignore list? Oh yeah, Quebec threads. Oh well, nothing of value is lost.


Every Quebecois I've met as an individual has been cool and easy to get along with (except that one tete de merde in the Laurentians). It's when they gather together in large numbers shouting slogans that they get irritating.

Granted, most of those meetings have been outside La Belle Province, meaning those people took the stick out of their ass long enough to visit the ROC. I think all the separatists should come pick fruit in BC for a summer so they can see we're not actually assholes (and vice versa).

madcan34: Tomfoolery Rules Over Logical Living: GoldDude: I bet Canada would be far better off without Quebec, assuming we drop the official bilingualism crap the moment Quebec separates (or the rest of Canada kicks them out). Having to produce bilingual packaging for the Canadian market is part of the reason why Canadian prices are higher than US prices for identical items. Not having to pay for French-speaking bureaucrats that serve a staggeringly small minority outside of Quebec, plus all the time producing all legislation, regulations, etc. in both languages.

Nobody has done a study to quantify this, because that might hurt Quebec's little feelings.
Plus we'd have to pay to write it in "Quebecois French" too.

Oh, and by the way, we'll redesign our currency immediately too, getting rid of the French, to discourage the Quebeggers from continuing to use the CANADIAN dollar.

That word made me laugh... and to keep with the US comparisons made earlier, it made me think that a good term for the Quebec separatists is Quebaggers.

/Isn't it clear that Quebec is the Florida of Canada? Complete with the hot women in the major cities, too....

Yeah, good luck with that, Quebec. Go ahead and "separate" in the middle of a country the size of the US, and be your own nation with no coasts, no independent exports, no trade that comes in over your own airspace, and your neighbor to the south hates Frenchies. You go ahead and be your own country, but first do some research on how landlocked non-producing nations actually fare in the global economy. (Hint: They're all grindingly poor and full of angry people)

I appreciate that you don't like being marginalized by Canada and want some independence; but there is a REASON the flyover states in the US haven't actually seceded yet, and it's not because they secretly really like the government. It's because with no port cities and no independent airspace, they're as stuck with the coasts as we are with them.

The St. Lawrence is navigable all the way through the province (Montreal's been a port since forever), and depending on where the sea boundaries end up in the Gulf of St. Lawerence, they'd probably have clear access to international waters.

I don't eat Pepsi and Mae West for breakfast
I don't watch da hockey game doing it doggie-style
And no, I don't know Claude, Manon, or François in Abitibi-Témiscamingue
But I'm sure they all have nice teeth

I smoke in church
I speak "Québecois" and "joual", not "French" or "Hanglish"
I pronounce it "tird", not third
And eating French fries with cheese makes sense, mon ostie,
I believe in a distinct society, as long as someone else pays for it
I believe in language-police, not equal rights
And, calisse, I believe that Club Super-Sex is an appropriate place
for my wife and me to celebrate our anniversaire
What the hell, she goes on at ten anyway

In Québec, the Stanley Cup actually comes around more often than
Halley's comet
I can get beer at the dépanneur, not the convenience store
And maybe I can't turn right on a red light
But tabarnac, I can go right through it
Because Québec is the world's largest producer of maple syrup

Which is odd, because he first got elected on the strength of the Quebec vote in 2006.

Quebec gave us Mulroney, then they gave us the Bloc, then they gave us Harper's minority, then they gave us a whole raft of unqualified NDPers. If they're not going to vote like grown-ups, maybe they should leave and stop farking it up for the rest of us.

At least they want to protect their natural resources from outside exploitation, unlike here in BC where we seem to want to be a province of China. We don't want our gold, or other valuable commodities, nor do we want our people working in the mines, so we'll just give it away. Quebec apparently wants an economy and some sort of self-sufficiency, which Harper isn't interested in for any Canadian but his cronies. Bush v2.0.1.

As a life long Quebecer, I can say 2 things with absolute certainty.

You're more than likely to meet a young, french speaking Quebecer who is dying to learn English than a hardcore francophone who wants English abolished.

2) There is nothing quite like sleeping with a french girl. I wouldn't marry one, but yeah...

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


That and Quebec totally farked Newfoundland by buying out their power plans and totally jacked them hard. Then they went and got some phone lines so that anyone building anything on those lines pays big.

Highroller48: These dipshiats make me ashamed to be 1/2 Quebecois.

What a bunch of self-deluded fools. You see, most separatists call for "sovereignty-association", in other words, independence from Ottawa but still keeping all the benefits of confederation. Problem: That's not up to them, it's up to us, and they're kidding themselves if they think they're going to be allowed to choose anyting other than "you're in or you're out".

What separatists don't realize is that public opinion would turn the tide very quickly into something like this:

-When they left they'd have to pay off their entire per-capita share of the national debt.
-A vote for separation would trigger massive federal granting of all pending Indian land claims prior to secession, cutting the size of Quebec by about 75%.
-All federal assets, including infrastructure, that aren't removed would have to be purchased by the province.
-Quebec would be left completely wihtout a military force of any kind, as all personnel and equipment would be removed.
-Quebec would have to join NAFTA or negotiate a separate trade deal with Canada, otherwise their status would be no different than, say, Botswana.
-Quebec would no longer be entitled to any current federal funding of any programs or projects.
-Any person who wished to retain Canadian citizenship would have the legal right to do so, creating a sub-community with divided loyalties within the province.
-Industries would be given huge tax and other incentives to relocate out of Quebec and remain in Canada proper.
-The federal government would freeze any Quebec assets under its control until all monies owed were paid in full.
-Quebec would not be able to use Canadian currency, throwing their financial markets into utter chaos.
-Their tax base of well under 10 million people is simply not big neough to sustain all the new responsibilities a "federal" Quebec government would suddenly have.

There are others, but perhaps the biggest consequence of separation would be this: O ...


SO MUCH THIS. Please, let them try on their own for say a decade, and when they got nothing, let them come crawling back to HUGE penalties?

It has nothing to do with separatism and everything to do with the student strike. Really, none of you know about it? Repeated quarter million -turnout rallies, classes canceled, thousands of people fighting police (and sometimes winning)? Yes? No?

There are signs up on campus here promoting solidarity. Fortunately nobody's personally asked me to support the strike, so I haven't had to swear at anyone.

Tellingly, the anglophone universities have gone back, but the francophone ones are still out.

Quitcherbloody whining and get your entitled asses back in the classroom. $300 and this is the response? It's a good thing the poor little dears weren't in BC when the tuition freeze came off. The shock and apoplexy might have killed them.

Yes. Sounded staggeringly stupid--the fight was over a small fee rise or something. And they actually had "student unions" who prevented students who wanted to go to class from doing so.

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.

HAHAHAHH!!! HAHAHHA!!! HAHAHA !!! Wait is this for reals?


Considering a good chunk of my tax dollars goes into Quebec's pockets, it is my goddamn business. When you stop sucking up billions of our tax dollars and actually take some goddamn responsibility for yourselves, I will stay out of your business. Until then, TS!

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.

There is some souverainiste sentiment among the student strikers (how's that for alliteration?), but I don't sense that the students' demands are what this election is being fought about. Furthermore, the student strikes are winding down now that the new school year is beginning.

I think that whoever wrote the Yahoo article is being alarmist. It doesn't necessarily follow that a PQ win will generate a referendum. After the 1995 referendum resulted in a win for the "Non," the PQ governed for eight years without calling for a new referendum. Even now, Marois is talking much more about the economy, social services, and strengthening Bill 101 than about plans for a referendum.

What *is* clear to me is that some Canadian commenters here get their balls in an uproar every time this subject is mentioned.

It would seem like a lot if you had the balls to fight for your own well-being instead of rolling over like you always do. It's only $300 because this is the response. These students aren't so stupid that they think it will stop there! So, are you going to emulate them and maybe upgrade your own standard of living (or at least stop its deterioration) or complain about people who are actually willing to fight because it's easier and you're a lazy piece of shiat?

Exactly.

For god's sake, people, us Quebecers voted the Bloc (which only short-sighted separatists voted for anyway) right off the freakin' map and opted to back a party that actually wants to do something on a national rather than provincial scale for a change. Do you honestly think that the PQ, which will have a minority government if it manages to come out ahead at all, will call for a referendum the next day? Or even on the short-term? Hells no, and if you do think that, you are one paranoid anglo. Marois will tackle education, money and corruption issues right off the bat to "get the house in order", and will be blocked every step of the way by the Liberal Party and Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ), which will most likely comprise the opposition, as they wait for their shot at re-election. Hell, maybe even Québec Solidaire, the left-leaning party who also has independence on its platform (thought not as vehemently touted as the PQ), will probably impeded any delusions the PQ has of actually governing this province.

Quebecers are tired of the Liberals, but look at the choices they have: PQ (yay separatism! again!), the CAQ (yay cutting social programs and limiting immigration for the sake of cultural integrity!), Québec Solidaire (yay even more taxes 'cuz what the hell let's hike post-retirement payments for the elderly even though the aging population will soon have an insufficient taxpayer base to support it!) or the little known Option Nationale (yay underdog with no exposure that also wants to separate!). What's more, all the newly-minted voters are balls-deep in the student protest, so no way are they tossing their support to Charest or the CAQ. In a way, the protest is a boon to the PQ. If it hadn't happen, the Libs would've been unceremoniously sworn back in.

In essence, the reason the separatists have any sort of traction again is due to an event that is making people want to choose what they perceive as the lesser of two evils. It's deeply sad and unfortunate, but trust me, there will be no more referendums. The only positive thing I can attribute to the PQ is its desire to keep natural resources in Québec, thereby strengthening the economy, instead of just letting anyone waltz in and profit. Unfortunately, that's very much eclipsed by their incessant separatist rant.

We've been farked in the ass by the Liberals for the last ten years...

What people tend to forget is that, before that, we got farked in the ass by the PQ for nearly a decade before that.

Prior to that? Bourassa. Let's be honest, a semi-intelligent mould, or a slightly retarded pidgeon would have been better than Bourassa.

People, Quebec needs actual goddamned leadership, not the professional graft-artists we've had for the last 20 years.

And to the Rest of Canada, as an Anglo, a staunch federalist and someone with the brainpower to manage TWO (that's 2) languages: Yes, Quebec sponges money. Yes, Quebec whines a lot. But Ontario is broke as fark too. So are most of the Maratime Provinces, and if it wasn't for Montreal industry a hundred years ago, Alberta would still be a wasteland. So fark off a bit, yeah? Let us, real patriots who live here and love Canada and have stayed for generations, fight the fight we have to. You can biatch and moan to yourselves, but we deal with this shiat every goddamned day, and we don't need the static.

Let's lay off the anti-French comments, try to understand one another, and at least pretend like Canadians have all the big-boy words we need to make our country work and maybe, maybe I won't have to frig off to another province in the next five years.

If the PQ has a referendum early in their term, they will lose. They aren't ahead because of their separatism but in spite of it. If the Charest Liberals were less corrupt and incompetent, the PQ would be losing.

Later in the term is different. Some prominent separatists (Pierre Lisée among them) have basically admitted that the fact that the Supreme Court is going to smack down the blatantly unconstitutional legislation they're proposing that would ban public servants from wearing "ostentatious" religious symbols (Turbans, Hijabs, yarmulkes are out, but a cross on a chain is ok, as are the giant crucifix in the National Assembly and the municipalities that open council meetings with a Christian prayer) is a feature, not a bug. Then they can rile everyone up about the 'foreign' court striking down Québec law based on a Charter Québec didn't sign. Of course the Québec Court of Appeal will probably strike it down too, but never mind.

It's too bad the English let them keep the French language after the The Battle of The Plains of Abraham.

The French victim culture up there is nauseating. Those idiots wouldn't know true victimhood if it ran up and bit them in their butts. Maybe they feel like victims because they're trapped in a dying language and have to learn English to get any decent jobs above McDonald's.

French is a slave language that traps those who aren't bilingual in one province without any chance of true upward mobility, since they cannot communicate with the rest of Canada or any Americans.
