From The Montreal Gazette:

MONTREAL — Former Parti Quebecois Leader Jacques Parizeau argues in a new book that it’s not because the sovereignty movement failed twice to pull Quebec out of Canada that the dream is dead and can’t or won’t one day happen.

My Comment: French Quebec demographics indicate that the French population in Quebec will be a minority within 50 years. Face it .... they are not having children. Immigrants may come and learn the French language, but the priority will always be English for them.

Parizeau's push for separation is just a dream .... and it will stick that way when he dies.
