She had just declared her firm conviction that Quebec needs to be a sovereign country before she was pulled off the stage.

And people say that Canadian politics are boring.

Canada should trade Quebec for Texas before Quebec leaves via free agency.

jayhawk88: Canada should trade Quebec for Texas before Quebec leaves via free agency.


While Texas would be good as someplace to go in the winter, the politics of the region are less desirable. And let's not even get into trading with Florida.

How about North Carolina? Could we have that? I never hear anything bad about N.C.

The Outer Banks are nice, but the legislating against science and general anti-gay stance showcases their derpy nature in a most unfortunate fashion.

Teahead? I had to look that up, it's a follower of a Canadian rock band. Alright. Well:
1) Are followers of the rock band known to be violent?
2) Why are there references to the Lower 48 in this thread?

No way we trade NC. The derpiness will decline in the coming years, and we don't want to sell low.

Missouri would be a good trade. Alas, unless Canada elects Dan Snyder, it won't happen.

Maybe what's needed is a third country to help. We'll take Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador, send Florida and Puerto Rico to the UK, and Canada will get Ireland, Scotland, and an Isle To Be Named Later. Canada get some drinking buddies, England gets a nice vacation spot, and the US gets a nice big tract of land that we can all move to when summers in the Midwest are averaging 130 degrees in 10 years.

The night before the election, my partner and I were discussing how very "American" a news report on one of Montreal"s anglophone television stations sounded. He said it was "alarmist" and I told him to calm down , that's just the way they "get out the votes" these days.

On a midsummer day, in a certain slant of light, when the sun's going down and there's shadows on the mountainside, a sister awakes and, amid temptation and psychopomp, she runs to the bazaar with a fire in the head to turn the lamp down low, crying out, "Save me."

Canada would never give up Nfld and Labrador, but I'm sure they'd be willing to give up Quebec as long as they get to throw in Celine Dionne, Bryan Adams and Nickleback

netcentric: he was heard shouting in French, "The English are waking up!"

Pauline Marois' entire schtick is pretty much based around the idea that the English (Anglophones) are why Quebec isn't the fairy tale kingdom for the French (Francophones) that separatist politicians preach their farked up little province could be. She's a bigot whose platform included numerous proposals to restrict free speech in English.

Preach bigotry and intolerance, and people will react. In this case, someone's reaction was a hell of a lot crazier than one would have expected up here. Interesting that the police won't call it an assassination attempt, but haven't ruled it out yet either.

The appropriate trade for Quebec is Florida. Both filled with ignorant French Canadians 6 months of the year, both decide Federal politics for unknown reasons and on the Canadian website Farque (if it existed) there would be a Quebec tag.

I fit that bill. Despite this recent incident, US politics is still more interesting than Canadian politics and I maintain the run to stick my nose in US politics and make fun of you all.

We've already transferred Mrs. Dion. Adams we want to keep. As for Nickleback, make us an offer. Michael Bolton perhaps?

When was the last time a Tea Partier killed someone at a rally? These guys actually did something, the Tea idiots have never done anything.

I'm right here, and the fact that you're comparing this incident to the derp that your politicians are spewing shows just how stupid you are.

I know, "You're still in Canada". Hahaha, you're so witty!

No that's the Tragically Hip. The Tea Party is the band that sounds like Led Zeppelin with Jim Morrisson as a lead singer.

I can't stand this, this is the dumbest thing Quebec could have done. Thankfully, it's only a minority government.

1) Form Separatist Government
2) Drive even more business investment away from Quebec
3) Profit????

There's a reason why a lot the business HQs have moved from Montreal to Toronto (specifically Mississauga) since the 1970's. Right now they rely on farming and tourism, people are moving away in droves.

Quebec acts like they are the only francophones in Canada too, ignoring New Brunswick and the rest of Canada's francophone population.
 
2012-09-05 02:58:05 PM  
Standard comment of:
Quebec is already separate country from the rest of Canada. Check out their own law books and their various inbred, screw the rest of Canada, rules and regulations.
Natives are allowed to take their own land and stay in Canada. Which is quite a large area.
The Saint Larry seaway will continue to be part of Canada.
No farking way is the country of queerbec going to keep Canadian currency and they will not continue to receive tax money from the the rest of Canada.
Republican Harper can go and be their Sweater vest leader for life.

/Good riddance ya dead language pushing deadbeats.
//Queeerbec can have the Maritimes for free too. Welfare munching perverts.
///France came over many years ago and raped the cod from Canadian waters, causing fishing in the maritimes to be killed off. farking snail ass munchers.
////Ooooo, my latte is done. Hot hot hot hot...
