My ancestors were among those who discovered La Nouvelle France; "Drouin" was my paternal grandmother's last name. I love Québec and I stand up for it. I wish I could say that my petit nation thought I was the ideal Québecois. But no, I feel like Madame Marois wants to turpentine the Anglo off of me or have the French Québecois alienate and exile me.

Anglophones must now constantly worry about full Nelsons and biological attacks wherever they go, whether it's on the metro or in a hospital, or wherever else the next attack might take place. While the PQ's Anglophobic and xenophobic policies do not help the current situation, they are not solely to blame. If this trend is to stop soon, those who have engaged in targeted violence towards linguistic groups must be made an example of and suffer the full extent of the law.

Quebec's school segregation laws, which ensure the children of immigrants from English-speaking countries do not have the right to send their children to English schools, uses language identical in principle to that used under the now defunct apartheid system of South Africa. All it would take to eliminate this inequality is a proclamation by the legislation or government of Quebec.
