    Acadians are a distinct community from Quebecois and have been since, oh, the very start of French colonization in the early 1600s. Equating Acadians with Quebecois will get you beaten in many places in traditional Acadia.

    Just because both groups speak French is equivalent to claiming that Australians and Canadians are the same people because they both speak English and were colonized by England at  roughly the same time.
