i really don't understand how you can be apologetic to this. it's a disgrace to canada and the non-seperatists. how can canadians cheer for that gold metal when it's wasted away with agenda.
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.
there's a lot of great people in quebec. especially in the tourist districts.
i was talking about this discussion with my roommate earlier today. he's fluent in french. it's obvious he's french. there's no denying he's french. he was telling me about last weekend while he was in montreal, a place wouldn't serve him an ice-t until he ordered it in french. i had the same experience except with mayo.
you guys can back them up all you want. not exactly sure why, but whatever.
