Protecting Quebec’s culture? Sure, but is French really it? ;)

That quote really made me smile.

The idea of protecting Quebec’s French culture is quite the noble endeavor. The only problem being I don’t think any of the First Nations were francophone. This notion that Quebec’s history is French is a blatant slap in the face of Quebec’s true historical identity, one the PQ is more than happy to gloss over. Does the PQ understand that there were people here prior to the French landing? It’s okay for their language to disappear?  Does no attention need to be paid to their history or culture?

It really reminded me of this cartoon:
