I always figured it was just some friendly joshing much like southerns vs Yankees here. Today I was on Halford's site and noticed a contest. Part of the rules were that you had to be a Canadian resident but Quebec was excluded.




Taking this regional rivalry to a whole new level. lol

Its probably a legislation thing. The laws in Quebec are different based on French law not English (the colonial powers, not the languages). So the contest is probably prohibited there maybe because it is not in French and non compliant with bill 101 in Quebec. Quebec is part of Canada and good citizens of the Queen. Remember how they won the war of 1812??

The queen should just give the whole country back to the Indians like she did when she gave Northwest Territories and turned into Nunavut.

Quebeccers bring on a lot hate towards themselves. I’m in the pipe trades. They can come and work in our jurisdictions when they have no work at home but they don’t allow others to work in Quebec. It causes a lot hate towards them on work sites .

I as well have found the French girls real friendly boco.


That said, the real reason we don't like them is because they act like Americans!!

they may not even be bad people but they all start off angry they have to speak English to you. I can't really understand why it took them like 3 minutes to say what ever it was they said in French before I asked if I could speak with Renee' in English.

I suppose they could buy french products but how would they get service , the french don't have to answer their phones after 5 or while at lunch so what are you supposed to do the other 17 hours of the day if something breaks.
