Canadian Unity Vs. Quebec Separatism 

For decades, a separatist movement in Quebec has tainted Canadian politics with a sense of bad blood.In many ways, Quebec is already like a separate country from the rest of Canada. They speak French 60% of the time, they sometimes eat different foods compared to the rest of Canada and... thats about it.     Really, that is it.   They still play hockey as much as the rest of Canada, have crime, pollution, spouses who cheat, children that disobey their parents, people who are rude and politicians that cheat and steal from the taxpayer.The more people try to claim "Quebec is a distinct society", the more people realize its really quite similar to the rest of Canada.

The remaining 17.5% speak a different language as their First language. Of that 17.5%, the other languages...
