    Post Re: Question for canadians

    As a member of a French-speaking group outside of Quebec who is fighting to preserve it's culture, I feel that if Quebec separates, it will be an enormous major blow to our civil rights (or the little civil rights we do have). Around the time of the last referendum in Quebec, there was much violence towards Acadians in this province because a lot of English people (ignorent ones, I might add) felt that we were involved in this "conspiracy" to break up Canada, and that we should leave too. heh.

    The Acadian population in Nova Scotia is dropping due to intermarrying, English influence, and media influence. Many Acadians have very limited ability in written French, not only because of these outside influences, but also because of the fact that many of us were *forcefully* educated in English. Many Acadian teenagers refuse to speak French or study in French because they think it is "geeky" or "uncool". I am guilty of this myself, I can articulate better in English than in French, but I must say truthfully that it is not by choice. We look to Quebecers as role models. The government of Quebec has helped us out, we wouldn't have University of St. Anne or bilingual signs if it wasn't for you guys, Queen Elizabeth wouldn't have acknowledged us if it wasn't for Quebec. We need you here to help us in our fight, because at 3.6% of the population and falling, we can't do it alone.

    Remember that the Acadians were the founders of New France.

    Post Re: Question for canadians

    The problem with what you're saying is that Quebec could do so much more as a nation, rather than the province of an artificially glued country. I do understand your situation, being of Acadian descent myself, as many other quebecers, but I find the freedom of 5 millions french speaking quebecers more important than 34 000 acadians who think french is uncool. Now ask yourself: do you really want to live as a french minority in Canada? This situation is indeed not very good to your culture, but it's not helping their either. Maybe someday we'll take back Acadie by force , and it would be justified, in a way, kind of... but for now this seems pretty hopeless, and I don't consider the idea of a bilingual country to be very good. But you know, you are the kind of people we would consider as "good" immigrants here, so feel free to come . If you see Quebec as role models (wooow, we're that cool?), you should seek a way to emancipate yourself too, not try to "live in harmony" with the English. Unless you got a little masochistic side...like most of our politicians here, sadly.

    If Labrador and Northern Newfoundland followed in Quebec's suite, so would St John's and the Avalon area.


    At this point I think Canada is confronting new issues which would be hard to deal with as a group of nations newly broken up. It would give more excuse for immigration. If we didn't have to deal with these newest developments then we'd consider seperation. But that is not the case. Outside Quebec French is looked down upon by people of French descent, especially in Eastern Ontario. The focus at this time should preservation of language and culture and blood in the face of these new challenges. Once we overcome this (IF we ever overcome) then we can consider seperation. Though I personally think Newfoundland and Labrador has it a bit easier than the rest where new immigration issues are concerned.

    Re: Question for canadians

    If Quebec separates, I believe sincerely that the rest of Canada will follow suit. In my opinion, the federation of Canada is a myth. The Canada we once knew and heard of is dead. Quebec would be wise if they suceeded for separation because it's the only thing that will keep it's own culture alive. As for the other provinces, we're just too American influenced to legitimatley call ourselves a distinct culture. Since the majority of Canadians don't want anything to do with Britain, we might as well join America. Not that I want to, of course.

    I live in Quebec and I know for a fact it is extremely toxic to the health, unity and prosperity of the country. An independant Quebec would be a blessing to the rest of Canada.

    Arrow Questions About Canada

    I am currently in college & training to become a commercial helicopter pilot. I am planning on moving out of california, usa to oregon or washington, usa to finish up at my university of choice. After I finish my degree & flight training; I want to move outside of the usa to live & work. How is Canada? Is there any highly recommended areas that are mainly white? In terms of flying, is there mainly helicopters there?

    Thanks for reading.
