  •  Well, I'm Quebecois (5+ / 0-)

    Family has been there since 1660, and yes while a lot of Quebec history does show an 'oppresive' nature towards French-canadians a lot of that was aided and perpetuated by the Catholic Church. Quebec was a de facto theocracy for many years.

    de Gaule wasn't speaking to oppression, he was deliberaltely meddling in Canadian affairs in the year of Canada's centennial. De Gaulle may have been many things but he was not politcally stupid. he knew exactly what he was saying and doing.

    The 'oppressed' card has been way overplayed. Tiem to put it back in the deck. This is now the 21st century, not the 19th or the early 20th. French-Canadians, and I'm one of them, are today 'oppressed' in what manner?
