quebec should be removed from canada by extreme force.

i've consistantly said that quebec should be removed from canada, and then perhaps conquered by force at a later date, by the queen's armed forces. preferably with a little help from a few british armoured divisions just for old time's sake.

McCartney's free Quebec concert ruffles sovereigntists

"Several prominent Quebec artists and sovereigntists are complaining about Paul McCartney's highly anticipated concert this coming weekend, accusing the former Beatle of "Canadianizing" the city's 400th birthday celebration."

and

McCartney tells Quebec nationalists to smoke 'the pipes of peace'

"His sovereigntist critics argue he shouldn't be playing such a prominent show in Quebec City because it would be too reminiscent of the battle between his native Britain and the French in Quebec in the 1750s."

it's funny... when people say they want to keep their british heritage alive and well in english canada, they get called every fucking thing from fascist to, yes, unpatriotic.

i realise not all quebecers share their POV, but when will enough be enough? give them one more vote in two years time, and let it be the final - FINAL vote on the matter. if they vote to leave, help them get the fuck out ASAP. just don't allow them to use our currency, and give them their share of the national debt that they'll owe.

it's comical how canada's head of state wasn't invited to quebec city's 400th anniversary, while the heads of states of every former french colony has been issued an invite.

give them their country that they want, then slap visa/letter of invitation requirements for entering canada. furthermore, economic sanctions must be imposed that make those currently placed against countries such as north korea and iran look like the equivalent of mummy and daddy withholding one week's worth of allowance when you were a child.

i forgot to mention how glorious it would be to see the queen enter this "celebration" at the front of a great column of tanks, complete with big-ass aviators, and a pack of sandwiches.

BoMac is gonna love the title...

But I agree with you for the most part, as much as they want to make this a "French" event, it's being held in Canada and to complain that McCartney's presence is somehow a reminder of something that happened in the 1750's is ridiculous...

how can mccartney "canadianise" this event when he's not even canadian? this is another reason why there are too many countries in the world... everyone thinks they deserve their own nation. fuck that. bring back the empires i say... there should be no more than four or five empires at most, subdivided by nations that must report to their own respective motherland.

I can't, actually. Your entire post reads like imperialist nonsense.

For the benefit of slow learners, can you explain what parts are jokes and what parts aren't?

If you ever ventured out of FYM, you'd understand.

The ridiculous part is that the separatists who want Quebec sovereignty are a minority voice, even in Quebec, and yet things like this drum up ridiculous amounts of press coverage and overshadow the whole point of celebrations. It really doesn't help the case of those separatists when they constantly look like assholes; that isn't how you win people over to your cause, imo. Arguments about how British Paul McCartney and his internationally successful non-nationalistic music can be pro-Canada and anti-Quebec simply don't hold water, and yet people are giving these idiots time of day.

Forget giving Quebec their own nation and punishing them; how about we punish the jerkoff reporters who decided this was newsworthy?

I've been here for nearly 7 years, you've been here for nearly 4, if you did venture outside of FYM and knew anything about Zoomer's posting habits, you could easily tell which parts of his post were jokes and which were not. So yes, I'm perfectly okay with it. You were hostile towards him for no reason whatsoever, and then it's somehow not okay for her to be hostile towards you? Even though you troll people as frequently as you're earnest? Give me a break. If you have a problem with what she's said, what does money have to do with you insisting that you've been mistreated? Nothing. Don't be a dick.

I'm hoping this part at least is serious, because that would be so damned much fun to watch.


...of course I first read "big-ass aviators" as "big-ass vibrators" and although it made me laugh I'm pretty sure I would not want to watch the queen with big-ass vibrators.

I'm pretty sure financeguy is quite familiar with Zoomerang's posting habits.

But, why not just wait and see if Zoomerang wishes to answer the question.
