I am a Quebecer.. I am half Quebecois and British.. I was born in Quebec and I love it.. I dont let the PQ or the Bloc or Mario bother me..I think that for unilingual people it is hard to live there.. Quebecers both french and english and the other nationalities there dont want to separate from Canada... we are Canadian.. the PQ would be wise to drop that issue and move on to important things that concern all Quebecers.. I am living in Ontario at the moment and I love it.. I came here to university and stayed... but I feel at home in Quebec...

Sometimes I get tired of the separatist bullshit so much that I too think about moving to Ontario. But I wouldn't be able to speak French as often there and my French would end up suffering a lot.

But aside from that, I am a bona fide Angerphone. I am an English Quebecker, and the anti-Canadian streak in Quebec nationalism pisses me the fuck off.

I also think about how after university I'll have to pay a shitload of taxes to the provincial government so that they can blow all the money on their bullshit identity schemes. That would make me even angrier.

I think I'll give living in MTL a fair try after uni, but if it doesn't work out, I'm off to somewhere else. I love Montreal, it's my favourite city in the world and it's my father's hometown. It's also federalist territory for the most part. So I think I'll feel more like on my own turf down there.

Where I live now is the cradle of separatism. But even here there are plenty of federalists. The problem with them is they don't have the balls to stand up to the separatists.

So will I then, so will I...

As long as they live in a United Canada and the fret of separation is not serious I say they wont stand up. But if a time comes, who knows?

on and on it goes

Marois rekindles PQ spirit
'we want a country' Defends sovereignty with attacks against Charest, Dumont
KEVIN DOUGHERTY, The Gazette
Published: 11 hours ago

Pauline Marois led about 500 delegates at a weekend meeting of her Parti Québécois in a chorus of "We want a country" last night, as she concluded a feisty speech attacking her adversaries.

When Marois was acclaimed leader last June, she pledged to take the PQ off its suicidal course of promising a new referendum few Quebecers seem to want.

But last night Marois left no doubt she still believes in the PQ goal of making Quebec an independent country.

"We are sovereignists and we will govern as sovereignists," she said, winning a standing ovation, She added no one contests that Premier Jean Charest governs as a federalist.

Marois has proposed a "national conversation" to allow a new PQ government to explain its case for sovereignty.

Last weekend, at a Quebec Liberal Party convention where his members gave him a 97.23-per-cent confidence vote, Charest dismissed the "national conversation," as "national confusion." Marois replied last night.

"Tell me, Mr. Charest, what is so confusing about wanting to talk about a country? "What is confusing about wanting to defend our language with more than wishful thinking?" Marois noted that at the Liberal convention last week, delegates put off until September discussion of the status of French in the province.

"They are even afraid to talk about it," she said.

She also renewed the PQ attack on Charest's $75,000 second paycheque, paid by his party on top of his $168,250 salary as premier, calling on him to explain the arrangement.

Turning to Mario Dumont, whose Action démocratique du Québec displaced the PQ in last year's election as the official opposition in the National Assembly, Marois said Dumont showed his "true colours" this week when he supported the Charest government's budget.

"Mario Dumont has just denied 15 years of principles and convictions in saying yes to a budget that will plunge Quebec into a deficit for the next four years," she said. The PQ proposed a one-percentage-point increase in Quebec's sales tax.

Delegates to the weekend meeting will debate resolutions defining the terms of the "national conversation." "We are going to talk to Quebecers," the PQ leader said, explaining her intentions.

"No referendum, but the reasons pushing us to want our own country. That seems clear to me." But Marc Laviolette, who heads SPQ Libre, a left-wing group within the PQ, wants to add a new way to call a referendum.

He said last night his proposal would complete the Marois plan, which he finds vague.

Laviolette's proposal would set in motion the referendum process once 10 per cent of eligible Quebec voters, about 500,000 people, sign a petition calling for a new referendum.

"It (the national conversation) should have a conclusion," Laviolette said.

"I think the membership needs to know how it will be done and the population must know that if the Parti Québécois is elected there will be a bill that will allow them to say we want a referendum."

Mario is one to talk about Charest extra income. She didn't get the money as a simple MP to afford the castle she lives in now.
Oh and her partner/ spouse being an ex president of the Caisse populaire , some national bank here, wasn't on the up and up in his dealings there, probably gave a few lessons to the Norembourg Investment persident thats on trail now.
