goodbye a LOT of olympic medals for Canada

the Quebecors are killing it at Sochi so far!

Charles Hamelin just won gold! and he still has two events to race in, ones he is more successful in than this race (including the one he won gold for in Vancouver)

If they ever separated, nothing much would REALLy change, and we could all talk about new and different shit for once

Quebec seems to have a strangehold on institutional bigotry too... that'd be a much stronger argument for letting them go from my perspective.

Of course, after the first nations got done with them they'd be leaving with a narrow strip of land along the st. lawrence and almost none of their precious natural resources.

i can just picture it now...quebec athletes would win a medal...marois would hear that the host nation was planning on presenting the medals in english and the presenter would be dressed up in garb of great significance to the host nation's culture..marois would pull the athletes from the podium physically herself.

LOL

Marois is so fucking embarrasing. Or maybe its more embarrasing that she has such massive support there.

I've always thought that when Quebec separates one of the conditions should be the one of the banks of the St Lawrence needs to remain a Canadian province.

fun fact: biathlon (the event) was incorporated into the olympics to simulate trying to get home after a habs playoff loss/win. the STCUM is broken (hence the skiing) and everyone is rioting like a bunch of fucking assholes (hence the shooting)

I would be sad if Quebec separated. It would completely kill the idea behind being a Canadian. Just looking at the map there would be this huge hole on the right, and it wouldn't "feel" right.

But then again, I'm sure the same was said for much of Europe so...

If Quebec separated, the area currently known as "quebec" would not be all that leaves.

And the idea of leaving to protect their culture is insane. As soon as they cut that cord they are giving up all the bending over backwards that the rest of Canada does to buffer their Frenchiness from the all encroaching Englishiness that is taking over the world. They would be diluted so fast that they'll eventually come back. With a lot less Frenchiness about them.

The native population would never let this happen.

I think the vast majority of the Quebec population forgets most the province is native land and there are a lot of other conversations to be had above and beyond any sort of referendum vote.

does quebec give more money to amateur sports?
is it a political maneuver to promote quebec nationalism? makes sense to me.

if there were anything approaching ontario pride we would be giving more funding to amateur sports.
