Albert911emt: Quantum Apostrophe: 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...

Could we try the dynamite thing with the southwest US, from Texas to Arizona? I betcha the rest of the US would be glad to see them off into oblivion.


It would be better to give it back to Mexico. How much fun would it be to watch that Arizona sheriff become a minority in his own state?

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.

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.

Quebeckers are like the 30-year old guy living in his parent's basement paying no rent and complaining he doesn't get enough respect as an independent hard-working.... oh, have you got my allowance??

Oh, who cares what the hell Canadians do up there. It's, like, freaking five miles away from freaking elf village in the North Pole. Come out of the snow; move down south to a real country, you cold, cold, french-speaking freaks.

clevershark: 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 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.

Vas y. Personne t'arrete.
 
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.

subsetzero: 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!

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).

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.
