There are those in Canada (outside Quebec) who believe the best solution to the issue of Quebec separation is to simply let it happen. These people, tired of being asked to learn French in order to work in the federal government, think allowing Quebec to separate will turn Canada into the English-speaking-only paradise it is meant to be.
The website Canada Divided represents one of these groups. They think all Quebecers are francophones and all francophones are separatists. Without them, they argue, language purity can be achieved. French is not part of the “Canadian identity” and somehow represents “ethnic segregation” (a xenophobic website denouncing segregation — now that’s balls).
The website is pretty bare, just a web forum and some links to videos. The videos are posted to YouTube, including:
- This one where a
skinheadoppressed anglophone seems to think that the only people hired to bilingual public-sector jobs in this country are unilingual francophones
- This one which warns that the media (which, as we all know, is part of a giant
Jewishfrancophone conspiracy) is ignoring the growing threat of multiculturalism against our fine country.
- This one points out for all us stupid people that the French civil code, which Quebec law is based on, is actually COMMUNISM, and that Quebec is secretly annexing the rest of Canada.
- This one notes that all our health care funding issues are a direct result of the government wasting money promoting bilingualism.
Honestly, it’s really hard not to invoke the obvious comparisons that come to mind. Couldn’t they at least have picked a non-bald guy and had him speak in front of a non-black background, maybe have him smile a bit?
