    Should English be allowed in Quebec?  Should Quebec be it's own country?  Please comment below.

    I think Quebec should be assimilated to be more like the rest of Canada from a linguistic standpoint.  This prevents separatist movements and unifies Canada more.

    I think that the Québécois should tie bags of cement to the anglophones' ankles and unceremoniously dump them in le Golfe du Saint-Laurent. This prevents trashy anglos from ruining another corner of God's beautiful earth.

    Diversity causes division.  That's why many in Quebec want independence.

    Wishing death upon someone for speaking a different language could get you reported.

    I'm confused, 'someone' implies humanity.

    The someone I was referring to were the anglophones in Montreal.  Wishing death upon people for being anglophones is poor conduct.  I am an anglophone.  I don't want to be (dumped in le Golfe du Saint-Laurent.)

    he didn't get your sarcasm but I did lol.  Quebec imo has unintentionally immunized itself from "refugees" settling there by maintaining their own language etc.

    I think Quebec will still receive refugees from countries that France conquered like Morocco since they have french influence.

    good point, though from what I have heard in the past etc Quebec is pretty socially tight as a state/region whatever.  They are kind of their own entity.

    Quebec is far more nationalist than Canada.

    I mean.. refugees still need to learn a language. Needing to learn French instead of English doesn't seem like a major barrier.

    In anycase, you can get by fine in many parts of Quebec being monolingual in English anyway

    Yeah, vive le francais!!

    Likewise, California should get rid of English, it's useless. Spanish should be the official language instead and then California can get its independence once and for all.

    Most people in California are monolingual English speakers.

    Bad idea.  California should not get independence.  Those who do not know English in California or anywhere in the United States should get assimilated in classes they or their parents directly pay for or get deported.

    Then stay in the rest of Canada. You know, the part that English people genocided their way into holding. Leave the French people in peace on the tiny bit of land that your shitty ancestors didn't pillage them out of.

    Although they outnumbered the French, genocide was rare or nonexistent,

    If we don't assimilate them, then they will want to break away to form their own country.

    Good, they should! So should the natives, since you seem so determined to bulldoze the few square feet of land they have left to build another shitty pipeline.

    That genocide happened a long time ago and no present day Canadian participated in it.  I don't think cultural genocide/assimilation should be genocide because no one is supposed to die in it.

    Separatist movements may cause a war, which causes death, and is bad for the unity of Canada.  Assimilation on the other hand, would help the country out a lot.  How is culture even worth having around if it can cause separatist movements?

    What you think is irrelevant. By the definition of the word genocide is not necessarily violent on the individual level, as it's a form of collective obliteration.

    So we can agree that separatist movements are better?

    How is culture even worth having around if it can cause separatist movements?
    I wonder why people on every side of the spectrum want to round so-called 'conservatives' up and put them in camps? It's inexplicable. It will be a mystery forever.

    When did I say that?

    So by your definition, the US commits this not by killing anyone, but by merely encouraging people to assimilate?  If we all had our own language, there would be many cultures.  But it would be impossible to communicate.

    You listed positive consequences, so I just assumed.

    This is why the Swiss communicate entirely through sign language. Since it's impossible to learn two languages.

    Unless your born in a bilingual household, it is almost impossible to learn a second language.  I hope we have culture unification in the future.
