I just heard a neat idea, Jean Charest calls a referendum on a question of his choice (one that all Canadians would agree to). Can just see Whacky Jacky Parizeau leaving his vineyard in France to stump for a Charest referendum. Only in Canada!!!!!

<br /> <br /> <b>If Quebec Joined the United States</b><br /> <br /> If Quebec were to become a State within the United States of America they would have to join with the understanding that they would not be catered to, or treated specially; they would be equal members in a strong and united Union, nothing more, and nothing less.<br /> <br /> The fact remains that Quebec stands to gain as much as the rest of Canada does in joining with the United States. Quebec, with its high unemployment, high debt and high taxes would see all these negatives shrink within a larger Union. Quebec often boasts how it does more trade with the United States than with the rest of Canada, and obvious benefits would arise from not having to deal with trade barriers that exist at international boundaries. <br /> <br /> Economically, Quebec stands to gain as much as the rest of Canada. However, what about Quebec's special needs? What about the French language? What about protecting Quebec's distinct culture? These are obviously issues that would need to be dealt with between the US and Quebec governments. However, it is not unprecedented for individual US states to protect their cultures. When the Louisiana Territory was divided and Louisiana was admitted as a state in 1812, it was given special rights to protect its French heritage (See CODOFIL). When the Republic of Texas joined the Union in 1845, being its own country, it was given many liberties, and special rights to protect its culture (See THC). When Hawaii entered the Union in 1959, it was also given special rights to protect its distinct and different culture (See HCPA). Surely, Quebec would be free to protect their own culture and heritage within the confines of the US Constitution, which provides liberty and equality for all.<br /> <br /> In the end, what we have in common is far greater than what differs between us. If Hawaii with its different culture, ethnic groups, traditions, values and completely different original language could grow and prosper within the United States, then so can Quebec. <br />

This was about one quarter of the entire population of New France, but a significant portion of these forces was made up of inexperienced militia, whereas most of the British force had fought in the American colonies earlier in the Seven Years' War. About 100 <u>Canadian</u> militia defended the top of the cliff above Anse au Folon, but 385 <u>British troops</u> were able to scale the cliff and capture the cannons and the militia's camp. By the September 13 almost 5,000 British had made it up the cliff to the plains. Throughout the length of the siege the <u>British</u> had suffered 270 deaths and 1,220 wounded; French casualties prior to the battle are unknown, but the British bombardment of the town, from ships and batteries set at Sainte-Petronille and Lévis, had been severe."[/QUOTE]<br /> <br /> Hmmm...

<br /> If Québec separates... what its fierce opponents will do ? Leave, promote partitionism or stay in peace ? I hope they will choose the third option.<br /> <br /> How come we don't hear you Dino, Calumny, Dr Caleb on that partionism thing ? Would you dare to promote it (even if it's worthless) after un OUI vote... even if you don't live in Québec ? You support Robert view ? Really... <br /> <br /> Another fear argument ! Come on Robert leave us our country. It's yours too. English-speaking America is big... we're not asking the moon. Leave that partitionism. Join Québec country, help us built together at last.

It might make me a citiznen but that does not make me European. Canadian is symbolic of an Identity, as American is an Identity, as European is an Identity, as japanese is, as Australian is, as Brazilian is, as....etc..Where you are born is irrevalent as to your origins. Canadian is more than mere Citizenship to Canada, it represents the Quebecois who fell under British Rule. British Rule is no more. What we are left with Robert is your empty threats of partition but you have failed to illustrate who is going to carry out your threats. <br /> <br /> Canada has humilated itself before the world with it VE day celebrations. The media and the politicians go on about how the Canadian's liberated the Netherlands and parade about Europe like a bunch of A-holes. Technically and in actual fact the Canadians did not liberate the Netherlands. Those who fought from Canada were doing so as British Subjects not Canadians. Europe knows Canada belonged to France at one time, the United States Knows Canada belonged to France at one time. The United States and Europe also knows the Quebecois are in fact the Canadians not the imposters showcasing themselves as spectacles before Europe and the media. A dead give away is the Anglais spoken <img align=absmiddle src='images/smilies/wink.gif' alt='Wink'> Can anyone say jackass!!<br /> <br /> Robert the Canadians are occupied people and we will be liberated or we will gain Sovereignty by Association. It appears you are for Canada being annexed by the United States and You believe Quebec would be fine in the United States union. You also stated Quebec would receive no special treatment in the Union. That statement is actually incorrect. Quebec would receive special treatment in the Union of the United States.<br /> <br /> <a href="http://lcweb2.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/D?hlaw:4:./temp/~ammem_wGbV::">http://lcweb2.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/D?hlaw:4:./temp/~ammem_wGbV::</a><br /> <br /> [QUOTE]</b>Montmorin wrote on October 15, 1778, to Vergennes that Florida-Blanca proposed to the English minister (Grantham) the following settlement:<br /> <br /> (1) Absolute independence of the Colonies. <br /> (2) <b>Preservation of Canada and Acadia</b> by England.[/QUOTE]<br /> <br /> Obviously Quebec (Canada) has had to fight to preserve itself under British Rule, and is still fighting with Canada to achieve that. This is actually why Canada may ultimately be Annexed by the United States or Europe. The British and Canada have failed to respect Quebec (Canada) by empowering it to preserve itself. Under the Union of the United States the United States Congress would respect the right of Quebec (Canada) to preserve itself as per request of Spain in this document. The Quebecois (Canadians) would be able to use this document as a legal shield as enshrined Constitutional rights under the Union of the United States of America. Therefor Quebec (Canada) would receive favored or preferential treatment in relation to other states in the Union. <br /> <br /> So guess what Canada, Quebec (Canada) would indeed have distinct society under the banner of the United States. One way or another Quebec will reach Liberation or distinct society. <img align=absmiddle src='images/smilies/biggrin.gif' alt='Big Grin'> <img align=absmiddle src='images/smilies/cool.gif' alt='Cool'> <img align=absmiddle src='images/smilies/lol.gif' alt='Laughing Out Loud'> <img align=absmiddle src='images/smilies/lol.gif' alt='Laughing Out Loud'> <br /> <br /> Because Quebec will receive distinct Society under the banner of the Union of the United States once Canada is annexed anything less than Sovereignty by Association in present Canada is unacceptable. <br /> <br /> What is it going to be?? Sovereignty by Association or Annexation by Europe or the United States!!
