That presenter is Terry Bradshaw, former quarterback at Louisiana Tech University, and, more famously, former quarterback of the world champion Pittsburgh Steelers back in the 1970's. I'm glad he's still around and employed at his age. It ain't easy.---Milton

Oh nice, thanks for introducing me to who this guy is. The mayor which they show, he is a christian who got sued by some brainwash socialist activist for the crime of 'having a cross at the office and having a morning prayer'. The activist brainwash isn't even from Saguenay, but he is supported by the Canadian Human Rights Commission, so the mayor has been harassed for tens of thousands of dollars, and also Radio-Canada tried to disparage him, but he stood tall against all of them and hasn't budged about it. He is really well liked in Saguenay. I have a friend at work who talks EXACTLY the same way\ in English, it's so funny lol

I need to make an annexation poster with this slogan:

United States + Canada = America

He's a good presenter,

He embodies well the attitude that comes along with being an American in the Canada + United States way :) I decided to ask him for his opinion about the whole idea of democratically combining our federations into a country that might become formally called "America".

I love that French Canadian English accent! It's certainly less grating than the European French English accent. And it extends to his choice of idiom, too. "We make snowmobiles, […] we make skiing". He's using French idiom in English.

Of course, they don't mention that Saguenay was also a hotbed of secessionism! ;)

They exist throughout English-Canada for sure, and not all of them are motivated by hostility towards Quebec. But the group in question above, are anglo-quebecers, anglophones who live inside Quebec and want it to become an independent country. There are more than 10 of them!

Here in Québec the use of Anglophone/Francophone has grown in both English and French, as way to distinguish between people who speak primarily either language, without false association of "England" and "France". Many anglophones, let's face it, have ancestors from Germany and any other place. As for Francophones, it's more about not being associated with an alien place that we broke off from culturally 400 years ago, and which we tend to perceive negatively overall.

I.E. "The socialist/francophone province of Wallonia in Belgium is scuttling the Canada-EU trade deal."

The main attraction of post-911 Quebec independence is restoring control over our immigration to prevent muslims from taking shit over as they have done in many parts of the West, usually the big urban centers and such. It might gain traction as a reaction to Trudeau's unabashed islamo-humanity and the corrolary ISIS 'refugees' inundation policies. For sure if we leave Canada, we'll allow non-muslim Canadians who wish to move here if they want before we call it quits lol
