Thread Name: BS: Independent Quebec
Subject: RE: BS: Independent Quebec
Reminds me a bit of a party I attended many years ago, where an anglophone and someone from Quebec were having a heated debate about whose ancestor had arrived here first. A native friend, who had been listening with a smile on his face silenced them smartly, when he rose to his full height and proudly proclaimed, "Mine!".

What part of Quebec separates? The original inhabitants of the province are not too keen on leaving Canada. Could be interesting from an original treaty point of view, to whom the first nations people feel they owe their alliegence. Quebec or Canada? The original French settlement certainly comprised a far smaller area than that which makes up the whole of the province now.
