remember that time Quebec didn't pay into the national debt while still asking for national funding for Quebec 'culture'? REMEMBER all those times Alberta and even Saskatchewan paid way more into equalization payments than Ontario while Quebec didn't pay much at all? Remember that time Quebec didn't sign the constitution but tried to run a political interest party on a federal level? Remember that time Quebec lost the war and still has pride? Remember that time Quebec tried to leave Canada and not take a share in the national debt but wanted to use our currency?
because we have to.
If the referendum of "should Quebec leave" was held in Western Canada, we would not only legally hold the vote (as it's illegal to have one without constitution signing...and illegal to hold a referendum twice on the same thing) but we would vote you the fuck out.
You do realize the NHL is more about capitalism than recognizing your roots? Honestly Montreal has more franchies than any other franchise. Maybe blame it on other places being better at everything...hell, even their goalie is from Alberta (well, if it doesn't SAY he's from here his parents grew up with my dad here...).
Just deal with it, they still represent franch canada better than any other franchise today.
good point to the first, and don't presume its cause they are franch. I am opposed to pro sports funding when I pay upwards of 75 per ticket.
you know if every province was as self centred as quebec, no province would vote for federal parties and we'd all vote for provincial interest ones. That means ontario would dominate more than they already do!
