Subject: Re: ...says Internet working against separatism (Canada)


most miss the fact that the st. lawrence seaway is the sea route for cities
like chicago and the midwest

what is the american military contingency for a "separate" quebec?
could it represent an invasion of quebec to the south shore of the st.
lawrence?
what interest is there in the united states in the maintainance of a french
language and "separate culuture" in america?

hmmm... i wonder...
