  1. I'm fine with it as long as they aren't harassing people or blocking emergency vehicles.
  2. Well either way it doesn't make sense. They should go somewhere political, like city hall.
  3. The People's Party are up 2-3 points the last couple of weeks, taking points away from the CPC and making it a statistical dead-heat with CPC and Liberals. But Liberals are still leading in seat projections by about 15 seats: https://338canada.com/
  4. I don't understand why you would protest a hospital because you're anti-vax.
  5. She thinks she's so tough and no-nonsense but she's just an arse.
  6. These are all chidish insults and ad hominems, and reflect a lot more on you and I. They will all be ignored. 1. Just because they don't bend on every demand doesn't mean they are listening. There's 2 french language debates before the election and only 1 in english. They aren't ignoring Quebec, far from it. How many debates are they holding deep in the heart of Alberta or Nunavut? 2. Ridiculous. Why do french or bilingual Quebecois vote for Trudeau over the other non-bloc parties? 3. It's not just money, it's political favours. Remember the Jody Wilson Raybould disaster? 4. What school are you referring to? Also, Ottawa has just made its city officially bilingual inside an unilingual english province. Has Montreal or Gatineau done the same? 5. I don't have any hatred for francophobes/Quebec. But I know a spoiled entitled child when I see one that whines and cries whenever it doesn't get its way until mommy caves. That's not all francophones btw, just you and certain people like you. Thankfully most Quebecers are fairly reasonable.
  7. Lol ya, the law is property rights where the owner of the property can ask anyone to get off their property and require them to wear a mask or a shirt/shoes whatever.
  8. Affirmative action is a protected right under the Charter. That's right, racism and sexism is specifically protected by the constitution.
  9. My point was that the Feds don't ignore Quebec, they're constantly kissing their butts. Most of our Prime Ministers are from Quebec. Trudeau's electoral district is a short bike ride from the SNC Lavalin headquarters. The feds throw more bones to Quebec than any other province without a doubt. Francophones get a vast disproportionate # of federal jobs. Virtually everyone in the country living outside Quebec or French New Brunswick would need to spend years in french school to be able to run for PM. "We just want to be respected!". Give me break, all we do is bend over backwards for Quebec francophones. Quebec is treated better by Ottawa than any other province by leaps and bounds. We just want you guys to be happy but you never seem to STFU, you're always whining about something and then hate us for it. I could even stand the whining but then having a province filled with people who hate you, that's annoying. I don't hate francophones at all, but a lot of them walk around with a big chip on their shoulder. Put yourselves in our shoes for 2 seconds, we've been putting ourselves in yours for the last 60 years.
  10. 4000 people in Quebec work for SNC-Lavalin. It doesn't matter if this doesn't affect you personally. They're a major corporation that helps the Quebec economy. Oh shut up you whining fool. Ottawa, including opposition parties, is busy right now bending over backwards for Francophones in Quebec over french language laws. But you'll say "that's a good start" and then start whining about the next thing Quebec francophones aren't getting because "Ottawa never listens to us". https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/liberals-table-bill-to-protect-french-in-sweeping-update-to-official-languages-act-1.5471189 https://montrealgazette.com/news/quebec/protecting-french-is-our-job-but-quebec-says-it-will-study-ottawas-plan
  11. Oh STFU. Are you kidding me? Ottawa does more to bend over backwards to Quebec than any other province by orders of magnitude. Quebec is not being ripped off, quite the opposite. Much of the corruption in Ottawa even involves politicians funneling money and favours to Quebec corporations and whatnot. Trudeau dumped his own attorney general to butter the coffers of SNC-Lavalin. How much has Ottawa given to Bombardier? Chretien put a CRA tax centre in his hometown of Shawinigan. Do you remember the sponsorship scandal? The entire federal government bureaucracy in Ottawa (and Gatineau) is a giant job factory for bilingual Quebecois. Quebec politicians have controlled the country for most of the last 50 years. Give me a break with your whining. Imagine if you lived in BC or Saskatchewan how much you'd be whining about being ignored by Ottawa. When was the last Prime Minister from BC?
  12. 3 of 9 Justices coming from Quebec is never going to happen and is totally unreasonable. You can't have an equal number of french and english on the SCC, there's 9 justices and you need an odd number to avoid ties in the voting. Quebec should not get special treatment, anything that applies to them should apply to the other provinces.
  13. You also have to realize that while the rest of Canada isn't perfect they have tried very hard over the decades to appease Quebec. Official bilingualism for a minority language, official multiculturalism since the 60's, recognizing Quebec as a nation within a nation, 2 major attempts after 1982 to bring Quebec into the constitution, mostly Quebec Prime Ministers the last 50 years, lots of money thrown Quebec's way, and they put up with a separatist federal party that couldn't give much of a rat about the rest of the country. It's not like people don't care.
