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!

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??

Well, we used that time to keep black folks out of the polls and schools, then on re-admittance we foisted such folks as Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter on the nation. Meanwhile, we were grooming guys like New Gingrich and John Edwards for leadership roles in the Senate.

phojo1946: 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.


Hey, hey, keep that Manifest Destiny talk out of here or we'll burn down your White House again.

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).


I've often thought "foreign exchange programs" within the US would be a good idea. Have kids from New York City live in the sticks in Nebraska for a year--and vice versa.

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.


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.
