What Does Quebec ExportSep 14th, 2005
First of all a note:
When you insinuate that a people are unable to fend for themselves, unable to produce food, unable to make money, unable to do anything, how do you think it makes them feel?
When a parent treats their children like children, they feel like children. When adults treat adults like children who can't fend for themselves it doesn't feel good.
That is another reason why Quebec wants to separate.
This list is not complete, I'm sure......just a few things that come to mind.......
Oh, one more note (actually a question):
Do you think that there is a magical line drawn around the area we call Quebec, and that inside that line everything is a barren wasteland? Do you think where Ontario meets Quebec that forests turn into desert, farms turn into swamps, and rivers turn into cess pools???
Corn (this summer it grew while ON corn wilted)
VIDEO GAMES (Quebec is in the process of usurping Vancouver's dominance in this Canadian market)
FILM (Quebec is also usurping Van as Can's Hollywood)
Money - Financial institutions, mutual funds and stuff
TOURISM - Obviously huge.....easily dominates all of Canada combined in this industry
Paper (see above)
Flags (our maple leaf symbol originated in Quebec)
National Anthems (Our national anthem originated in french in Quebec....the english version is the translation...I think but not 100% sure)
Names of Nationalties....Les Canadiens was the name the British called their enemies when they attacked Nouveau France.....
I have a class to go to, but I may add to this list in the future.....
You may be interested to know that Quebec has a very similar ecology to ON, and grows/produces/exports pretty much the same things we do......and in a lot of cases do it better
