well for one thing, it would be the only way for said athlete to compete in the most important competition of his/her career. If they have cultural identity issues should they not be allowed to compete on the world's stage?

From my experience, every person that i have met that's from Quebec is proud to be a Canadian and a Quebecer. Some consider themselves Quebecers first, Canadians second, but i have not met one who denounces Canada.
