I've been hearing you TALKING about independence from Canada since I was a little kid. And yet, 40 plus years later, you're no closer to independence than you were in 1961, when I was born. Now, in that same time, do you have any idea how many countries HAVE gained independence? Dozens. Some had to fight tooth and nail for their independence. Some had to break free of the iron grip of communism. Others just went their owns separate ways peacefully. I mean, the Czechs and the Slovaks didn't spend decades trying to piece together their federation, did they? When they decided to split up, they just DID it!
As of today, even Montenegro is independent!
Which just makes me wonder… do you guys in Quebec REALLY want independence? You CAN’T want it all that badly, now, can you? If you really wanted to declare independence, you could have done it a long time ago. Ottawa wasn’t going to send troops to force you back into union. Truth is, if you REALLY wanted independence, you’d have had it by now.
So, why the pretenses? Is it just a way of extorting perks and concessions from the English-speaking provinces? If so, are you as astonished as I am that theyt haven't caught on to the scam yet?
