  1. What's the difference between federalist and independentist in Quebec? The term "independentist" is preferred by some supporters. Also in practice, the term " Federalist " was used to define people who stood with and agreed with confederation in other words agreeing that Quebec

  2. /u/legardesvues explains Quebec's reasons for refusing to sign the Canadian constitution and the difference between a federalist and separatist in Canadian terms.

  3. It is an actor within Quebec's civil society that takes a particular interest in Quebec pride, in the promotion of the French language and in the sovereignty of Quebec. For more than 15 years, we have been co-ordinating the Fête nationale de la Saint-Jean, which is celebrated on June 24.

  4. Answer (1 of 2): In Scotland, I know there is the journal The National. In Catalonia, I don’t know their independentist media well but I seems to me La Vanguardia, while it’s not necessarly independentist, at least does try to convey accurately what independentists think.

    Firstly, I would like to congratulate the Wikipedia community for the recent improvements in this article. I was surprised to see, visiting for the first time in several months, the huge difference in quality, appearance, and content. 1. Thank you. Please, please add more pictures of people. All I could find was buildings. I was looking for an open-source picture of the St. Patrick's Day parade. --Soulscanner11:24, 12 December 2006 (UTC) 1. 1.1. Most of the people attending the parade are francophones with or without Irish roots. Everyone love the Irish and everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day. Please, don't ethnicize this event like so many others. -- Mathieugp21:22, 12 December 2006 (UTC) 1. 1.1. 1.1.1. Don't ehtnicize the St. Patrick's day parade? Youre joking, right? The Irish are an ethnic group in Canada. The Irish people have no problem with their etnicity and diaspora identity. Seriously, start making sense. Again, look at the organizers of the St. Patrick's Day parade ; t...

    Hello and bonjour! I am new to editing here but I have been reading Wikipedia for some time. What I would like to see is more information on the participation of anglophones in the Quebec and Montreal political spheres, because certainly this is relevant. So far the Quebec articles on this topic mostly relate to the language laws and such, and honestly, this is far too limited in scope. There is a greater range of participation and involvement. I have not been making major edits but would be interested in working in this area at some point. 1. I would have to agree that this limiting, which is why I started with other more relevant aspects of life among English-speaking Quebeckers. However, political involvement is mostly either historical or on an individual basis. As a community, what is most noticeable is the lack of political involvement on the provincial level among anglophones. The fact is, the last anglophone provinicial cabinet ministers (Herbert Marx, Clifford Lincoln, etc....

    I edited this article to clarify the meaning of the population figures introduced by Soulscanner, but he has reverted my changes. There are essentially two possible ways to arrive at a figure, depending on one's view of native speakers of third languages: 1. 1. Soulscanner's figure of 918,000. This is used by the federal government for determining where English-language services should be provided, based on the idea that some people with a third language as mother tongue will prefer English-language services to French-language ones. It is derived from a statistical notion known as "first official language spoken", based first on mother tongue, then on home language, then on knowledge of languages. When it is impossible, for a given individual, to distinguish between English and French based on these considerations, they have twofirst official languages (or rarely, none, if they have knowledge of neither language.) The 918,000 figure is arrived at by adding up all those who have Engl...

    Several people attempted to change the definition of English-speaking Quebecer without providing a rationale. Referenced items that were blanked were restored. Where citations were requested they were given. These references were then blanked in an ensuing edit war. I recommend that those wishing to change the definition used by default in this article acknowledge and adress the given rationale before changing definitions. I also request that all acknowledge that this is not a demographics page, and that technical details can be discussed elsewhere than the introduction. All information inserted already was discussed in the poplation section. --Soulscanner13:25, 24 April 2007 (UTC) 1. This is a completely inaccurate statement. Mathieugp and I are well aware of your arguments and we both rejected them. You call clarifying misleading information turning this into a "demographics page". Most of the edits you are talking about consisted of you repeatedly removing fact tags I had placed...

    Listed at WP:RFC/HIST Soulscanner has made these edits: to the page. I am requesting comment on the edits. They consist almost entirely of reverts of edits I made. I believe there is also a certain POV pattern to the edits, and comment on the nature of the edits from the point of view of Soulscanner's conduct would also be appreciated. This can be done here: Joeldl16:49, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

    Reading this entire talk page, I fail to see how Soulseeker has done anything more "wrong" than having the temerity to disagree with two editors that obviously share the same strong opinions. The accusations of "anti-Francophone bias" are more than a little tenuous -- all of his edits are, as far as I can see, at least sourced, and there's a certain amount of bullish "whatever Soulseeker does is wrong" entrenchment on the part of the two other editors involved in this dispute. Starting a section about Soulseeker's conduct before going to RFC is leading and disingenuous, to say the least. A "Request for Comment" should be just that, not a "Request for People to Agree With Me and Excoriate This Fellow Who I Disagree With." Joeldl and Mathieu have obviously put a lot of hard work into this article, but I think they may be falling into the old trap of feelings of ownership. It's not your article, and if Soulseeker has information to add, and facts to back up that information, there is n...

    Image:OscarPetersoncomposer.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guidelineis an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page. If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 200...

    I have assessed this as B, although it needs more inline citations, and of mid importance, as I feel that this topic plays a strong role in the understanding of the history of Canada. Cheers, CP03:27, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

    Just a little question, my grandfather is english quebecer and my grandmother is french quebecer (my parents are french quebecers) so i am considered english quebecer and french quebecer? thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.82.226.40 (talk) 01:58, 3 January 2008 (UTC) 1. That depends on how you define it, but mostly, it's up to you and how you respond to the census and surveys about the subject. 1.1. Mother tongue: is the first language you learned English or French? If you learned English first, you are English-speaking. I learned German first, so I'm allophone. 1.2. Home language: do you speak mostly French or English at home? If it is English, you are English speaking by that category. I speak mostly English, so I'm anglophone in this context. 1.3. First official language learned: Did you learn English or French first? If you learned English first, you are English-speaking. I learned English before French, so I'm anglophone in this context. 1.4. Ancestry: If your grand...

  5. What's more, 90% of the article should be cut because it's just endlessly repeating that different people have different views about what the party policies and ideologies are. But saying "let's propose an attack section on Catalan independence movement to goad people into participating in the Ciudadanos talk page discussion" is disruptive.

  6. The key difference between Borat and Richler, however, is that Borat is a fictional character and a comic act suffused with hyperbole (with very serious social criticism interwoven into the act); whereas Richler was a very real person who was speaking out for the residents of the province of Quebec who were being victimized by the French ...
