MIRABEL, Que. – A high-ranking French politician has weighed into Quebec's values debate, very tentatively, with praise for the idea of a secular state. France's finance minister was asked about the values charter controversy ...
Paige Lautenbach's insight:

The French minister should get to speak his opinion in the debate, but I don't feel he should be able to decide. Quebec has a French background but they are still there own. They are part of canada and they are not owned by the French. Quebec should decide on there own. The French should help them decide and give opinions but in the end it's Quebec's final decision.

I agree with your insight, he should get to speak his own opinion about the debate. Good article!

Re: “A Quebec model for tolerance” (Opinion, Sept. 20).
Paige Lautenbach's insight:

The french are the first Quebec people. I agree with this article and think Quebec should stay with the French culture. Quebec is part of canada but the french are part of Quebec. This article is part of another article and describes and adds to it very well. I think the French should stay in Quebec.

Is Quebec following France? - Cobourg Atheist

Is Quebec following France? - Cobourg Atheist | French and Quebec | Scoop.it
France has long had a secular tradition. Like Quebec, its institutions, including schools, were dominated and controlled by the Catholic Church. Therefore in 1905, laws were passed that enshrined the formal separation of ...
Paige Lautenbach's insight:

This story showed me how Quebec has French vaues. I liked how it explained the values and traditions that Quebec had. French is a big part of quebec and its upbringing. Reading this made me realize that just because Quebec is in Canada doesn't mean they have to have Canadian values and traditions. The French are a big part of Quebec.

Quebec's new immigration rules put the emphasis on French skills

Quebec's new immigration rules put the emphasis on French skills | French and Quebec | Scoop.it
Prospective immigrants to Quebec will need to master French better than in the past under new immigration.
Paige Lautenbach's insight:

I think they should be able to speak french and also one other language that majority of canada speaks because they were part of Canada and they will still have canadians in their country. This relates to the topic because it shows hot Quebec is trying to split from Canada.

All about French language requirements in Quebec immigration ...

French language point conversion and French language requirements in Quebec immigration, how to convert clb to ielts points.
Paige Lautenbach's insight:

It think that since most of Quebec is French it should be mandatory for them to speak french if immigrants come to Quebec. French is part of Quebec's culture and it should be published that you must speak or know french to live there. I think that since Quebec has always been majority of French they should legally publish it like that.

Paige Lautenbach's insight:

I think French should be allowed to stay in Quebec. French is part of Quebec's culture and they should be allowed to stay there. Perserving the French would keep Quebec the way they have always been and help keep there culture going. Immigration should be monitored in a country or else the population levels will change and alter. The French have always been part of Quebec and should be.

Paige Lautenbach's insight:

I think it is cool that the french minister praised Quebec. Quebec has a French background and It's great that they got reconignized for their French past. I bet that it meant a lot to Quebec that he praisted them and there values. This story is a good one to read if you want to hear about the French values in Quebec. It really shows the French values that Quebec has.

Interesting. It sounds like they're debating whether religion determines morality and whether or not they'll continue to be moral if they are become secularized. It sounds like this high-ranking politician is saying that they are a moral people with values character, so secularizing wouldn't change that.

Quebec separatists win minority government, referendum sidelined

QUEBEC CITY, Quebec, Sept 4 (Reuters) - The separatist Parti Quebecois won a Quebec election on Tuesday but only gained enough seats for a minority government in the French-speaking Canadian province, effectively ruling out another referendum on independence.

Paige Lautenbach's insight:

Quebec is a city in Canada that has a majority of french people in it and they want to separate from Canada and become there own. I think Canada should let them but still agree to fight in wars together and have close ties

Political, because it talks about the québécois win in the quebec election, which puts them closer to separating from Canada.
