      I remember about a decade or so I would hear about that separation movement of the Quebecois (probably spelled that wrong) about once every month or so. I haven’t heard anything about it for a very long time. I wonder if they got something that appeased them, or just gave up.

    2. Lexington Green Says:

      Both. The Bloc Québécois got blown away in the recent Canadian election. Quebec used threats to secede to extract money from the national government. The new Conservative government won’t play that. I would like to see Quebec break off. Anglo-Canada would be a much better ally and trading partner. Quebec could become an Arctic Haiti.

      HAHA “Arctic Haiti” – that is awesome. My wife was in Montreal about five years ago. She was less than impressed. I have never been there but do want to go to Banff someday.

      “Dim the Lights and Chill the Ham” is still one of my favorite ‘instrumental’ albums.

      I would like to visit Quebec. The old parts of the city are supposed to be nice. But it is far from a priority.
