Yo just want to point out that the guy who said there wasn't serious oppression of the french canadians was wrong. It never reached the level of how the natives or immigrants of color were treated in America and Canada, but there was stolen land (even though it had been stolen from natives in the first place), people not being allowed to hold any management jobs because they spoke french, people being denied service in french in their own province because all the businesses were owned by out-of-province anglophones, voter suppression, violence, and basically all kinds of horrible shit. The separatist movement was very much a reaction to how francophones were treated. The first PM of Canada had as a mandate to assimilate all french-canadian culture, and Quebec's refusal to give up their own culture led to oppression, so it was some real serious shit.

Maybe I'm being pedantic, but why are we calling anti-French sentiment racism? Is "French-speaking" a race now? I'm just saying, there are other types of bigotry besides racism...
