I thought for a moment they meant Jacques Parizeau. This would be odd but not a surprise, as like most English Canadian-haters, he just adores everything really English. Jock, darling: bite me! (Not that some French Canadian-haters don't reciprocate fully by loving every French provided it stays on the other side of the Atlantic. They can bite me, too!)

Instead, they meant some guy I never heard of. This is a surprise, but it is not odd.

It is, kind of.  He thought the PQ was too weak, so he decided to go full derp and make a radical separatist party.  And won no seats, and lost his own riding for pity's sake.  Now he's abandoning the country he claimed to hold so dear, while firing one last salvo over his shoulder about how he hopes it's not because he was for Quebec Independence.

Pathetic, really.

And as for Quebec seceding... I say we should let them, but only if they agree that they can't apply for foreign aid from Canada for at least 100 years.

Maybe he moved purely for the cuisine?

What's ironic about that?

What's "nuit poutine"?

On second thought, maybe I don't want to know.

He looks like Keith Olbermann.

Boy Jean Martin Asshat sure knows wheres the poutine is the most monetary beneficial.

/The lowly country of Quebec won't not separate without continuing to receive Canadians tax payer money, the use of Canadian money, plus theres that new east/west tar sands pipeline coming in a few years to their port if sweatervest can get it going to make his $billions in undisclosed investments.

//Real Canadians will cut Queebecs land up so that the Northern half is kept as the road to the Welfare-a-times and then the Seaway and its southern lands are a protected Canadian corridor.

///The land known as Native Indian territory will either stay with Canada or join its U.S. Native brothers who have an open border Native policy.

Also provided that they leave with what they came with, and honour all Native land claims. Basically they get a 200 mile strip along the St. Lawrence that's about 100 miles thick. No untouched wilderness for you!

As they say: "Love it or leave it". He left it.

What's with the Fark Hate for Quebec?

Those frogs were the victims of the English and fought with the Indians instead of against them. They should be on the right side of history.

England is not a "real" country: It is part of the UK.  Scotland, apparently wants to become a "real" country.

Maybe he is going there to help them out.

Cheese curds and gravy on your partner.  Not such a big deal.

M. Aussant,
Ne retournez pas, s'il te plaît. Nous ne voulons pas de vous. Amenez vos amis.

I hate to be this guy but being a separatist doesn't mean you have to be a nativist or ignore opportunities outside the community.  It is possible to have earnest beliefs but still have a pragmatic approach to your working life.

A sawbuck to a stale Timbit says that the guy moved for tax reasons.  He's a financial expert; QC has high taxes on just about everything.

They intermarried with the Indians, too.  Some friends and I were mooching around the Eastern Townships the other week and got lost.  We stopped to ask directions; the fellow who put us on the right road could have walked onto any Indian reservation anywhere and not drawn a second glance.

I'm probably wrong, but I think the Huron were with the French and the Iroquois with the English.
I'm told that when you buy cigarettes at any of the Native tobacco shops near Montreal, they speak English, At the ones around Quebec City, they speak French.

Quebec Sovereignists, whether you like them or not, are NOT Teabaggers; as such they have no need to prove how "authentic", or "uncorrupted" they are from other cultures to their constituency.

Well, tabarnak, Jean-Martin, what did you expect would happen? You found out yourself how much interest anybody really has in a government that means business about taking Quebec out of Canada and driving another generation of Quebec's best and brightest down the 401. Zero. That includes, as you may have gathered, pretty much everybody with any real influence in the PQ. They know a sovereign Quebec would be a basketcase à la grecque by now.

Asshats like you are the reason all of Canada's banks have long since moved headquarters to Toronto. And you really don't know why nobody in what remains of Montreal's financial industry will return your calls?

Goodbye, Jean-Martin. Next lifetime don't shiat where you eat.

If Qubec every secedes, I suggest we offer them statehood, as they'd held balance out the Deep South.

Go right ahead. And when their economy collapses and the refugee problem becomes intense, you'll be giving them aid just to keep their poor from immigrating. Or they'll end up a dependency of the US.

Not to mention the huge tolls they could impose on traffic between eastern and western Canada if that were to happen. It's not like you can go around them.

Stupid frogs. Be sure to maintain the purity of your language...with all the importance of the 19th-most spoken language on the planet.

I am sure France would have collapsed had they allowed people to call a Walkman a Walkman.

Oh yes, you do. Poutine is fries with cheese and gravy. Yummy.

As for Bleu Nuit:

In Quebec, many of the soft-core porn movies shown late night on Cinemax and Showtime in the States in the boyhood of many a Farker were, for many years, shown on broadcast television late night by the low-budget network TQS as part of their "Bleu Nuit" series. It was something of a TV institution in its day, and ad sales in that time slot probably did more than their share to keep TQS, perpetually one step ahead of bankruptcy and hobbled by a lack of cable coverage outside Quebec enjoyed by its competitors, above water.

Of course, those days are over. These days the V network, as TQS is now known after a long-delayed bankruptcy in 2007, fills late-night dead air with infomercials.

"MikeyFuccon":  +1 for your fine explanation.

Another Quebec separatist who got educated in English and/or sent their kids to English schools.  Jacques Parizeau did both, by jove!
