    Quebec: Feels so good to have French as the official language

    Just wanted to let you know. I truly approve the people of Quebec who do not forget their roots. After all French is far more superb and elegant compared to English.

    If you heard a typical Quebec "francophone" speaking joual, you might not think it was so elegant. There's a reason that there are joual to French translation dictionaries on the web.

    Actually, the rest of Canada has already asked France if they want to take Quebec off our hands but France said no regifting. France doesn't want Quebec, not even if the Quebecers learn how to speak real French.

    I'm curious how anyone can objectively say that one language is superior to another.

    Quebecers should be happy they live in an advanced Anglo ex British colony rather than a poor impoverished ex French colony. The only French settlement that wasn't a failure was the one built by Britain. ***** ***** *****

    Canadian French is so different from, you know, French French. I tried to watch "Mom" without the subs and didn't get a thing
