quebec french

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. There are many of us Québecois who are not pure laine, but Québec is the only place that is home to us. If people of all religions, of all races, of both genders can live together in harmony in this province, why can't Anglos and Francos?
As the FLQ was a product of the Quiet Revolution, recent attacks seemed to have been sparked by the Parti Québécois' electoral victory on September 4, 2012. 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.
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.
