Your "Country" is not a country! It is your flag. Have pride in Quebec, I like the province and its inhabitants. But just don't support someone who calls the Canadian flag a "red rag". Vive le drapeau Quebec , but remember Canada is important too. Don't say Quebec is a "country" when really it is a province!

Thats it Scott, roll your eyes. Separatism is bad and there is no need for it to exist.

I respect your point of view but disagree. There is place for all ideologies in this world is it true? So i think mine is okay too. We try to do it by a democrativ way so what is bad with that? When i read that kind of speach that you have it convince me more that my opinion is the good one. You don't understand us and it's time to change.

I asked to add my flag to the list of available flags because i think i'm not the only one here who wants our flag in the list. "OUr flag" because 78% of the population here, in a recent survey, consider themself "Québécois" before than "canadian". That's why i asked if it was possible to add my flag.

I have nothing against the canadian flag i just think it doesn't represent me in any case. I would prefer the flag of France than the canadian flag. You just could not imagine how i would love to feel canadian, but this is not the case and this is not my fault. We are like we are and here we are different. When i read that kind of speach that you wrote guys, i realize that Diane Francis did her job right by writting that kind of stupidities.

We are a nation in a country who doesn't accept it. So i think my ideologie is not a bad one in that case.

Only to say if Quebec feels that way, then yes it is their fault and I won't be shedding any tears when you finally separate. Absolutely nothing would satisfy you people unless the entire country spoke strictly French, because you feel threatened and paranoid. Whenever I want to feel like I'm in a different country I'll just go to Quebec and speak English to somebody and the dirty look I'll get is evidence all its own. I grew up in a French-Canadian community in Ontario, and they didn't make me feel that way. It's only that way in one self-serving province with only its interests in mind, and couldn't care less about the rest of the country. With that attitude you're more than welcome to split imo.

Is it because we protect our language from assimilation that we are a nation with closed eyes? Our culture is in "danger" so we need to protect it. Even your canadian governement realize that.

And your post make me think to one thing that i wrote recently in a work for my university... wich one of the 2 minorities is the best served...

On one side we have the french minority in Canada who could not receive any service in french. They don't have any french university and days after days they have the feeling that they are inferior to anglophones because anglophone have everything and them nothing. Not a good situation am i right?

On the other side we have the anglophone minority. They have 2 big university in Québec, they have a lot!!! of college in english only, they can be serve anywere in Québec in their own language. Nobody look at them when they speak english because this i a reality of multiculturalism and we respect that here. They can find jobs even if they speak english only. And many more reasons.

So don't make me laugh when you said that we wants a french-only country. We will not do the same thing with our minority that you did with your minority. We are open minded!

I thought that all cultures benefited from assimilation of and exchange with other cultures, I have heard of "protection of a nation's culture" in other times.

I know you certainly do not mean the same barabanschikova_fan but there is only a small margin between "protection of a nation's culture" and "protection of the purity of a nation's culture.

As much as I am French and "Francophile", I feel necessary to step in at this stage on this point.

The same way as I must step in to say that there is no place in this world for all ideologies.

Here again I am certain that you are referring to a certain context specific to Quebec, barabanschikova_fan, but this can not apply to all cases.

sorry for my poor english, it's more tough for me to explain what i think in english but i try to do my best.

But the protection of the french culture in Québec is a good protection not a bad one. And this is not the opinion of only the separatists but also from others who are not. The Assemblée nationale members are all agree on the protection of the culture with the "loi 101".

I agree i did not express myself very well about the ideologies. In was in fact about Québec ideologies. But even then, we can understand most of the ideologies in the world when you put yourself in the place of another person. "Valeurs"(sorry i don't know the word in englsih) are different in the world and we must respect that i think but i agree not in all cases.

40% of the anglophone population in Québec do not speak one word of french and they are able to live here anyway i think this is a good sign that the protection of our french culture is not a protection of the purity of our culture. I hope you understand me well. Sorry again for my english.

So back on the subject of my post. Can you add my flag or not?

I have a better idea anyway.
How can we put a picture under our username?
