If only the people of Quebec felt that way about any other country besides France

Canadians have given Quebec a quarter of a trillion dollars in equalization payments since 1957. Over that span of more than 50 years, Quebec has always been the biggest beneficiary, and has never been a net contributor to equalization.

Quebec receives bullshit funding from the rest of Canada so you lazy fucks can get next to free schooling and funding for your shitty programs while the rest of us work our asses off to pay for them.

That is not exactly accurate. If you look for Federal Support to Provinces and Territories on the Department of Finance's website, you'll see that the province of Ontario actually received more federal support (19.8 billion) than Québec (17.9 billion) in 2013. Now, the reason why we have cheaper education, have 7$-a-day daycare among other social programs, etc. is because we chose to have citizens pay more taxes to fund such programs. In choosing this more European approach to social issues we obviously diverge from the rest of Canada, which tends to lean a little more to the right. Knowing this, it's easy to understand the tensions and divisions that might arise.

Quebec isn't Canada. It's France #2, and everyone knows it.

I'm not even Canadian and I know it!

No, they hate us and we hate them. In fact we hate a lot of people, except Florida.

Because French people. I have been to Montreal exactly three times, and Quebec City once. Every time I so much as went into a store and used an English greeting (well, some stores in Montreal. lots of anglos there, so it was less of a problem) I would get a dirty look. I don't speak any french whatsoever due to having shitty french teachers all through school, but my dad does and he would often tell me we were being insulted behind our backs.

People from Quebec really come off as arrogant cockbags.I'm sure its not everyone there, but there is a very, very vocal amount.

Being from Quebec. I was often told that I had to speak French (I'm bilingual with a really weird accent). However, I was told in BC that I wasn't a real Canadian for being from Quebec; that fucking hurt, because I worked my ass off to write and speak English fluently. Although, I'm aware that there are assholes and friendly people everywhere and you just need to place yourself around the right people; it's still hard to feel unwelcome anywhere you go in your own country, whether you're in your hometown or visiting another province. I love my country and my province, but it's hard to keep that going at times when you're constantly being frowned upon for speaking both official languages of the country.

TL;DR there are assholes and good people in Quebec and in English speaking provinces, but fuck you if you're bilingual.

I agree, but I feel some of the stigma comes from the whole "Quebec tried to be it's own country" thing. A lot of people feel that Quebec doesnt WANT to be Canadian, and thus get angry about it.

As a bilingual, I totally understand. I used to go to a French high school, and we could actually get in trouble for talking in English. And not like in French class or anything. If we were caught talking in English in the cafeteria or the corridor and such, we could risk getting a detention.

I know there's tension between the francophones and the anglophones, but this is just ridiculous
