Letters: Quebec threatened

Shirley letter writer thinks Quebec is a separate culture

In response to George Miller’s letter asking why anyone would want to leave Canada, “Canada is the best” Sept. 19, Sooke News Mirror.

George Miller is of course referring to Quebec. George speaks, from a province 150 years old, about Quebec which is 400 years old.

George, I assume, speaks French, and has read Roys Blas, Zazie Dans Le Metro, Tartarin de Tarascon and the unsurpassable early works of the great French poet Rimbaud —  a few basic French works.

If I assume this correctly, then indeed, George would well wonder why Quebecers have had enough.

Quebec is French, they have a great culture. It is not the culture of Canada, it is the culture of Quebec. If more Canadians would try to become aware of this Quebec, then Quebec would not feel so threatened by the tone deaf Anglophones that they are suffocatingly surrounded by.
