[QUOTE BY= sebastien] [QUOTE BY= jesse] [QUOTE]<br /> The Québécois are more different than the Canadians are different than the Americans !!! And still you hold to your country vs USA !<br /> <br /> Why<br /> [/QUOTE]<br /> <br /> This has been answered many times in these forums, by various people. For one thing, Canada is *not* just anglophones and francophones; the vast majority of immigrants in the past century have not had english or french as a first language. Canada is a multicultural country, a collection of nationalities within a common territory. If Canada can peacefully have a large Chinese population, then it can have a large quebecois population and still remain as a complete country. As for holding onto Canada vs the USA, that is mainly economic, not cultural. [/QUOTE]<br /> <br /> <br /> Let's answer another time...<br /> Québécois don't want to be an "ethnic population" ... we want to be a people... we want immigrants to be called Québécois like you want newcomers in Canada to be willing to get called Canadians !<br /> <br /> "Separatists want to brake the country" ???<br /> We will not brake the Constitution 'cause Québec hasn't sign it.<br /> We will only brake the illusion of that country my friend.<br /> We will only brake the country in two on geographic map.<br /> That's it !<br /> If Canada cannot exists without Québec it has a problem in the first place.[/QUOTE]<br /> <br /> Sebastien I agree with you, if Canada can't exist without Quebec it does have a problem. But the thing you forget to mention is that the majority of Quebecers don't want separation. That's why your still here and why federalists in english Canada don't have any intention of "letting Quebec go."<br /> <br /> In my opinion the federal government has no intention of ending this issue of separation because it keeps them in power. The only purpose of the Liberal PArty of Canada is to stay in power. If they really hated separatists they would have gotten rid of the Bloc Quebecois a along time ago but they have come to realise that the BLoc keeps them in power. When you look at the metis, aboriginals and inuit they are a distinctive people but they are also Canadian I look at Quebecers as a people but that doesn't mean you are not Canadian. Perphaps instead of wasting your time on separation you should be focusing on getting a new party in power that will actually listen to people in Quebec and english Canada about changing the constitution.<br /> <br /> The type of approach in 1990 with the meech lake was decentralize the country.If Quebec is happy the rest of Canada will be happy! <img align=absmiddle src='images/smilies/rolleyes.gif' alt='Rolling Eyes'> (That logic has never worked and never will. example: NAFTA.) If french Canada and english Canada were to meet half way I bet we could get a new constitution. The only way that's going to happen is if people choose to be open minded and that will be tough for our separatist minded Quebecers and our intolerant bunch in Alberta but since I'm an optimist I think there will be a new constitution soon if the Liberals get booted out of office next year and people make the issue of "change" and elections issue. <img align=absmiddle src='images/smilies/wink.gif' alt='Wink'> <br /> <br />

The october 28th , canada spend over 20 million in one day. I dont know how many they put for all referendum period but ... and this is not a majority .. this is civil war 50% 50%



Devant la situation ainsi créée, il y a lieu de réaffirmer le principe fondamental en vertu duquel le peuple québécois est libre d'assumer son destin.
