If I remember correctly that vote in 95 was really, really close. Like 49/51 or something like that.

yes very close
remember watching when i was a teenager
strange thing being french and living in ontario
the "yes" side was winning half the night
it wasn't untill they counted the votes from the cities that the "no" side pulled ahead and kept the lead
the polls are far different now
most in quebec now dont want to seperate and the french population of quebec is one the decline
the seperatists are still very strong in the province but now have to play a role of pushing for seperation but not seeming they are pushing for one
Through me the way to the city of woe, Through me the way to everlasting pain, Through me the way among the lost.

Are the french people moving out to other parts of Canada or are they just dying faster than they are procreating?

Imigration dialuting the local french population
Half the city of Montreal is completely english (the boring half)
I remember going through Montreal with my friends
We got lost and they sent me into a coffee get directions and the buggers working there didn't speak a word of french
Plus the french imigrates they're getting from African countries are coming to "Canada" and not "Quebec"
Plus their not procreating as fast enough rate
and the Quebec born youth aren't as interested in seperation... they're more interested in rebelling against free trade

IMO I think the seperatists will have one last push and if they don't win they probably going to go the way of the Christian Allience and slowly be sucked into the other political movements

EDIT: Quebec City and the area around Ruoyn are very much still french though

Makes sense.  It would be interesting to see a predominately English Quebec, especially Montreal and Quebec City.  I really need to get back their some day.  When I grew up in Northern Maine my family used to take quite a few trips to Quebec City.  It was a long ass drive but it was cool to see the different, kind of European architecture.  But yeah, it was tricky asking for directions when you could only say hello and goodbye in French.

I hear Quebec City is gorgeous though. I do really need to get to Montreal this year though.

Quebec city is still very much french
its quite a lovely city in terms of aesthetics, but I've only been through the city, and only once
Almost got arrested near the border once cause apparently the van we were traveling in was classified in Quebec as a "mini-bus" and we didnt have the currect papers or something
We just pulled the whole "Im just a stupid English Ontarian" manuver.. and besides I was working for an inventory company at the time and we had a few fine looking ladies working for us so that helped us as well
we didn't even get a ticket

He was funny.  I loved watching his press conferences.  Much funnier than Mulrooney.

That reminds me of Rummy's Known knowns quote:

"Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns -- the ones we don't know we don't know."
