Québec Ancêtre - Did you know?

Quebec was almost an independent country. In 1995, a referendum was held to separate Quebec from Canada. The referendum was not officially legally valid and was only held in Quebec. The no camp won the referendum by 0.4%, which is still seen as a major fraud by the yes camp. Today, the separation question is less strong, but you shouldn’t call a Quebec resident a Canadian. Everywhere in Quebec you can see the blue flag with a white French lily, the official symbol of Quebec. The Canadian flag is only visible on a government building, a rarity. In 2006, a symbolic motion was adopted that recognises Quebec as a "nation within unified Canada."
