i live near barcelona, spain and im doing a project about canada, about its identity crisis and i would appreciate if people would give me their opinion =) thaaanks
First off, tu es vraiment jolie ma chère
Now that I cleared that, Canadians do have an identity crisis... I for one, don't. I'm not Canadian, I'm Québécois. French speaking, not religious, open minded on certain issues, I enjoy discovering new thing, I love musique and dancing, I enjoy the arts (all forms)... That is for me, many of my friends are somewhat similar..
As for the Canadians, many (westerners mostly) consider themselves more American then anything.
I was born in Quebec, as were my parents and grandparents, je parle francais courramnet, and yet, I do consider myself Canadian as well as a Quebecois.
As part of the anglo minority in Quebec, does that by definition exclude me from being considered a 'Quebecois'? Is there really a distinction between the 'pur laine' variety and the non 'pur laine'?
I've been living in the US for a while now and I always identify myself as a Quebecois and Canadian. If and when I ever go back, I'd only consider Quebec-- for me, it's always been 'home'. Also, in your opinion, does being a Montrealais into the equation, given the current past and current unique Montreal politics?
I'm really curious as to your thoughts.
