The amount of sheer ignorance in this thread is mind-boggling, I'm surprised this isn't some inside joke to (sorry-dated term) punk me.

Still a card carrying member of the SFC :)

And don't forget that these places are physically separated from continental US. In the Canadian example, none of the land routes are going to go away, even if Quebec decides to separate.

The bottom line is, Quebec needs the rest of Canada more than the rest of Canada needs Quebec. If it wasn't the case, they would have left the Confederation already. No one in the rest of Canada is saying we need to kick them out, but if they want to leave, I don't think very many people will miss them either.

lol but are you sure it isn't just to punk you?
all this Quebec talk is making me wanna book some tickets to Montreal, pig out on poutine and Montreal smoked meat sandwiches, go clubbing, down some Blanche de Chambly and then go to Quebec City and refuse to speak a shred of French.

then give up eventually and try to utter broken French while trying to find some accommodations
